Nassau Community College Institutional Report Card, 2000.
Nassau Community Coll., Garden City, NY.
This document is an internal review of Nassau Community College (NCC) (New York). Using research material developed though institutional effectiveness studies, it incorporates comparisons with three peer groups for the 1996-97 academic year. Highlights include: (1) Nassau is more successful in the task of attracting first-time, full-time students than the comparison groups; (2) the number of students enrolled at Nassau Community College has remained stable over the last decade, decreasing by 3% since 1989; (3) from fall 1989 to fall 1999, the enrollment in the evening division dropped by 26%; (4) while the decline between fall 1997 and fall 1999 was less significant than in prior years, NCC must continue its work to address the core issues of declining enrollment for both part-time and evening students; (5) in national studies, 56% of students who began their postsecondary education at a community college in fall 1989 stayed (persisted) to their second year. For the same time period, 71% of Nassau Community College students stayed (persisted) for a second year; and (6) for the fall 1991 and fall 1992 cohort years, Nassau's graduation rate was slightly below that of all State University of New York community colleges but above for fall 1994 and 1995.
