Piedmont Technical College 2000 Report of Institutional Effectiveness.
This document is the 2000 Institutional Effectiveness report from Piedmont Technical College (South Carolina). The areas that the report addresses are: academic advising, achievement of transfer students, and student development. Findings conclude that advisors need to consider work schedules and job demands when advising students, that Piedmont is seeing an increase in the numbers of students who are not seeking transfer, and that Piedmont needs to improve its leadership skills development programs for students. The report also concluded that its social and cultural activities such as intramural sports and concerts are a success as attendance and participation is growing and all of the intramural teams were full for all sports. Additionally, participation in student clubs continues to grow each year. With regard to achievement of students after transfer, it is reported that non-White transfer students from Piedmont fare worse academically at their four-year institutions as compared with their non-White counterparts. This document gives detailed information about how Piedmont collected data for this report. (LD)
