Institutional Self Study in Support of Reaffirmation of Accreditation.
El Camino Coll., Torrance, CA.; Western Association of Schools and Colleges, Aptos, CA. Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges.
El Camino College, California, is a public two-year college in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County. The El Camino College District encompasses 5 high school districts, 12 elementary school districts and nine cities, with a population of almost 1 million. The district is governed by a five-member Board of Trustees, each representing one of the five school districts. In fall 2001, 24.6% of students were Caucasian, 29% Hispanic, 16.6% African American, 15.1% Asian, 3.3% Filipino, and 0.5% Native American. Women represent 54% of students, and 31% of students identify themselves as evening students. There has been a 4% decline in African-American students over the last 6 years, a trend which the College would like to reverse. To accomplish this goal, the College has recently signed a lease for a new center in Inglewood, California. This self study addresses the following 10 institutional standards: (1) institutional mission; (2) institutional integrity, which includes a commitment to the integrity of academic freedom and the teaching-learning process; (3) institutional effectiveness; (4) educational programs; (5) student support and development; (6) information and learning resources; (7) faculty and staff; (8) physical resources; (9) financial resources; and (10) governance and administration.
