Wyoming Community College System Annual Strategic Plan Report, 1999.
Wyoming Community Coll. Commission, Cheyenne.
This document discusses accountability and the 1999 strategic and action plans for the Wyoming Community College System (WCCS). The primary WCCS goal for 2000-2004 is to assure coordinated, efficient, and effective operations of the community college system. Program 1 of the action plan is to provide effective credit instructional programs for Wyoming citizens. Program 1 has two objectives: (1) to deliver quality instruction by employing a highly qualified faculty, staff, and administration; and (2) to prepare students for transfer or the job market by providing equipment and technical support at each community college. In addition, to establish the status of the objectives, a common graduate, transfer, continuing student, and employer survey were developed over a two-year period. According to student self-assessments of their experiences at Wyoming's community colleges: (1) 91% of students who transferred to the University of Wyoming felt that their community college did an excellent job preparing them for further study at a four-year institution; (2) 70% of students consulted with an advisor regarding transfer while they were attending a community college; (3) 85% of students felt that their general knowledge and intellectual curiosity had been moderately or much improved at their community college; and (4) 79% of students were satisfied with cultural programs offered.
