Strategic Goals for 2000.
This is the report of the 2000 New Mexico Association of Community Colleges (NMACC) Strategic Planning Conference. Participants worked in small groups to identify the most probable and the most desirable world for the year 2000. Results for the most probable world include: (1) education would be available to many consumers, using many delivery systems with varying quality and affordability; (2) communication technology would make global environment local; (3) politics would have a heavy influence on policy decisions; (4) there would be a growing underclass unprepared for better opportunities; and (5) competencies and accountability would be more valued than traditional measures (such as degrees and transcripts). Results for the most desirable world include: (1) the world would be at peace; (2) each individual would have total economic security; (3) the world would be crime free; and (4) there would be universal health care. The report also includes probable and desirable futures for NMACC. The most probable futures list includes: (1) there would be a need to replace aging faculty and staff; (2) community colleges would be valued for their role as centers for workforce and economic development; (3) four-year colleges would provide greater competition for students and funding; and (4) community colleges would be more accessible in terms of cost, scheduling, variety of delivery systems, and locations. Includes action plans for developing the most desirable goals for NMACC in 2000. (NB)
