Performance Accountability Report, 2000: Maryland Public Colleges and Universities. Volume II.
Maryland State Higher Education Commission, Annapolis.
The 1988 Higher Education Reorganization Act established an accountability process for public colleges and universities in Maryland. The law requires the governing boards of these institutions to submit annual performance accountability reports to the Maryland Higher Education Commission. In 1996, the Commission approved a new accountability system for public higher education that measures campus performance on a series of key indicators that respond to concerns often expressed by lawmakers. These indicators can be grouped into categories of quality, effectiveness, access, diversity, and efficiency/allocation of resources. For each indicator, the public campuses developed benchmarks or goals to measure their performance. This document, in two volumes, contains the fifth report delivered to the Commission under the current system. Volume II contains: (1) a short description prepared by each public institution; (2) a complete set of trend data and benchmarks for each of the indicators for each institution; (3) a listing of each indicator; (4) guidelines for benchmarking the indicators; and (5) the formats for the institutional performance accountability reports of the public campuses.
