Strategic Plan for Texas Public Community Colleges, 2001-2005.
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Austin. Div. of Community and Technical Colleges.
This 2001-2005 strategic plan for Texas Public Community Colleges assesses external as well as internal factors relevant to the role of community colleges in the state. Plan highlights include: (1) between 1995 and 2005, the Texas population is projected to increase by 31%, an annual growth of nearly 2%; (2) the Hispanic population is expected to increase from 30% of the current total population to 40% by 2025; (3) Hispanics and blacks are projected to account for more than 51% of the population by 2025; (4) in 2005, more than 82% of Texas' jobs will be related to the service-producing sector, requiring a technically skilled and multi-language workforce; and (5) state support of administrative and instructional expenses has declined from a high of 61% in 1985 to 39% in 1999. Performance measures include: (1) the rate at which students complete courses attempted; (2) the number and types of degrees and certificates awarded; (3) the number of students or graduates who transfer to or are admitted to a public university; and (4) the racial and ethnic composition of the college's student body. To help align these performance measures with the goals for each community/junior college district, a format for the outcomes, outputs, and explanatory notes is provided. (NB)
