Results Report, Fiscal Year 2001.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
In Illinois, 39 community college districts and one multi-community college center provide access to nearly one million students each year. The Illinois Community College System developed this strategic plan, the "Promise for Illinois," to outline the role community colleges should play in building a strong future for the state and its residents. This report for fiscal year 2001 provides continuing evidence of the individual and collective accountability the colleges and the state board demonstrate through their use of both human and fiscal resources to provide programs and services that support the statewide goals for higher education. Information is provided for each of six statewide goals that (1) relates the priorities and pledges that form the "Promise for Illinois," as well as college priorities to these goals; and (2) identifies common and individual college initiatives and actions and state-level initiatives that support the goals. These six goals are defined as: economic growth, teaching and learning, affordability, access and diversity, high expectations and quality, and productivity and accountability. Each college reported two best practices, one academic and one administrative, that support one or more of these six statewide goals. Detailed descriptions of these best practices are included in the appendix. (KP)
