Illinois Community College System Results Report, Fiscal Year 2000.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
The document relates the results of the reports of Illinois' community colleges, which provide continuing evidence that the colleges and the Illinois Community College Board are pursuing the statewide goals for Illinois higher education. The Results Report provides information for each of the six statewide goals identified in the Illinois Commitment: (1) economic growth; (2) teaching and learning; (3) affordability; (4) access and diversity; (5) higher expectation and quality; and (6) productivity and accountability. It describes the priorities and pledges that form the Promise for Illinois, as well as college priorities to the goal and identifies common and individual college initiatives and actions and state-level initiatives that support the goal. Additionally, each college identified a best practice that supports one or more of the six statewide goals. In the occupational programs designed for the workforce, there have been increases in the numbers of partnerships with business and industry, work-based learning opportunities, and incorporation of occupational-skills standards into curricula. Some of the most common outreach activities included in the colleges' Results Reports include early assessment and supportive coursework for high school students, tutoring, enrichment programs, hosting K-12 events on the campus, etc. An appendix contains descriptions of the best practices.
