Five-Year Interim Report.
Truckee Meadows Community Coll., Sparks, NV.
Truckee Meadows Community College's (TMCC) (Nevada) Interim Report covers activities from October 1995 through August 2000. Part A addresses the institution's responses to the five general recommendations from the 1995 Northwest Accreditation site visit: (1) that the college incorporates missing components into one of its degree programs and several certificate programs, which at the time of the site visit were lacking a component of general or other related education; (2) that the college immediately construct a conceptual framework that links information to a planning process that would provide the institution a sense of direction; (3) that faculty define opportunities within their curricula that ensure students will acquire skills in applying information and technology; (4) that the college achieve consistency in faculty evaluation across the campus by adhering to the provisions of Standard VII; and (5) that priority be given to establishing an organizational structure and accompanying operating procedures that are clearly defined. Part B addresses questions related to other institutional changes. Part C cites significant changes related to commission policies and standards. In general, the college developed a new mission and strategic goals; new emphases were added to the college's degree programs; and the institution is offering new ways to meet student needs. There is also an expanded focus on assessment. (JA)
