Meuschke, Daylene M.; Dixon, P. Scott; Gribbons, Barry C.
This report, compiled by the College of the Canyons Office of Institutional Development and Technology, assesses the programs and projects of College of the Canyons as part of the Partnership for Excellence (PFE) Program. The report explains that the PFE Program is a mutual commitment by the State of California and the California Community College system to expand the contribution of community colleges to the social and economic success of communities across California. Further, the PFE Program identified five indicators: (1) transfer and transfer prepared, which is defined as the number of students who transfer from community colleges to baccalaureate colleges or the number of students who earned 56 transferable units; (2) degrees and certificates, which is classified as the number of degrees and certificates awarded; (3) course completion, which is defined as the percentage of enrolled students who earned a grade of "C" or better; (4) workforce development, which is defined as the successful completion or courses in the categories of Apprenticeship, Advanced Occupational, or Clearly Occupational; and (5) basic skills improvement, which is defined as the number of students completing coursework at least one level above their prior basic skills enrollment. The report concludes that the 29 reporting campus projects successfully met the 5 indicators of student success. (ND)
