Alabama State Commission on Higher Education, Montgomery.
The Alabama Commission on Higher Education has the statutory responsibility for the overall statewide planning and coordination of higher education in Alabama, the administration of various student aid programs, and the performance of designated regulatory functions. This annual report provides information about all of these responsibilities and some initiatives. Some of the higher education initiatives achieved during this fiscal year were continued funding for the Alabama Virtual Library and Alabama's ranking as number one among southern states in minority doctoral scholarships. Three of four mandated reports from the state's student database have been generated: the high school report card, the transfer migration report, and the tuition residency report. Retention graduation data are being gathered over a 6-year period, and the report is scheduled for 2004. Data collection for the Faculty Database is ongoing. Workforce development and the link between education and industry continue to be main objectives of the Alabama Higher Education Commission. This annual report includes: (1) photographs of the commissioners; (2) a message from the chairman; (3) highlights of legislative activity; (4) highlights of academic activity; (5) a report on activities of the Southern Regional Education Board and its electronic campus; (6) an overview of the commission; and (7) highlights of the financial aid activities.
