This is a report on indicators of success in achieving community college goals at El Centro College (Texas). The report provides statistics from 1997-2000 and focuses on the progress of nine goals: (1) institutionalizing service beyond expectation--according to student satisfaction surveys, campus changes that have occurred between 1996 and 1999 have had very positive results; (2) implementing the agreed-upon program/discipline mix for the college--many of the recommended actions from 1998 have been completed or are nearly completed; (3) building the transfer component of the college through steps like teacher training and learning communities--the report indicates that while the numbers of educational personnel course sections are holding steady, enrollment is increasing; (4) infusing cultural competency throughout the organization--between summer 1999 and spring 2000, a number of multicultural courses were offered; (5) supporting technology acquisition and faculty/staff training--nearly 50 software courses were offered during fall 1999 and spring 2000; (6) developing an ongoing process for institutional effectiveness; (7) developing and enhancing workforce development initiatives; (8) implementing the college's marketing plan; and (9) developing an ongoing process for enrollment management. The last four goals are being implemented successfully. Contains various tables and charts. (MKF)
