Cabrillo College Self-Assessment of Partnership for Excellence.
Cabrillo Coll., Aptos, CA. Office of Institutional Research.
This document is a report on the self-assessment of the 2000-2001 Partnership for Excellence (PFE) program conducted by Cabrillo College (California). The PFE program addresses the community college's goals, with direct emphasis on transfer programs, degrees and certificates awarded, student course completion, workforce development, and basic skills courses. This report provides information on five items of the PFE that the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges requested: (1) the district priorities for the PFE program; (2) the racial and ethnic composition of the student population; (3) demographics (level of education and race/ethnicity) for the surrounding community; (4) district-level goals for the PFE program; and (5) district performance for 1999-2000. Results indicated that: (1) the college spent approximately $3 million to fund the PFE program, with 38% going toward student course completion; (2) PFE funds are also used to recruit high quality faculty and staff; (3) the student population at Cabrillo is predominantly white (67.1%), with Hispanic students as the next largest percentage of the population (20.9%); (4) the surrounding community is also predominantly white--over 50% has college experience; (5) the college showed success in all goals except basic skills completion--student attrition and early transfer were given as reasons for this lower success. The report includes five tables of statistics. (MKF)
