Gribbons, Barry C.; Dixon, P. Scott; Meuschke, Daylene M.
The Office of Institutional Development and Technology (IDT), in cooperation with regional accreditation committees, surveyed all administrators, managers, supervisors, full-time faculty, and classified staff at the College of the Canyons, California, in spring 2002. The purpose of the survey was to gather information useful to college staff in preparing their accreditation self-study for the site visit of the Western Association of Accrediting Colleges. This is a revision of an earlier study (JC030183.) Of the 51 administrators, managers, and supervisors, 47% (24) returned completed surveys. Of the 164 full-time faculty, the response rate was 48% (78), and the staff response rate was 50% (84). Some of the questions posed to the administration, faculty and staff addressed the following: (1) mission statement, vision statement, and strategic plan; (2) faculty orientation and mentoring programs; (3) financial planning issues; (4) departmental planning issues; (5) college's self-representation to public through its publications; and (6) professional development opportunities. More than 91% of faculty indicated that they believe the college represents itself accurately and consistently to the public through its publications, while only 45% indicated that Fiscal Services' forms and procedures are clear. At least 80% of staff members indicated they have adequate training opportunities through the professional development program. Survey instrument and response table appended. (Contains 12 figures.)
