Focused Mid-Term Report.
Cypress Coll., CA.
This Cypress College mid-term report has been prepared in response to recommendations that resulted from the Cypress College 1999 accrediting team visit and self-study. Those items requiring special focus by the Accrediting Commission are addressed first, followed by the individual recommendations by the team, and finally comments on the college's planning agenda as identified in the self-study. The items requiring special focus included: (1) a reorganization of the college's top administrative positions; (2) the creation of Director of Institutional Research and Research Analyst positions in the office of institutional research as well as targets for growth and a strategic plan for that office; and (3) the development of a college-wide strategic plan that is consistent with the college's mission and vision. Specific recommendations included: (1) a review of the college's educational philosophy and vision to ensure that it is clear to the public; (2) evaluations of curriculum development and approval as well as instructional quality assessment which are integrated with the college's planning, budgeting, and decision-making processes; and (3) a review of the administrative structure in student services in order to provide more stable leadership and a more cohesive student services program.
