Report on the Maricopa Community Colleges Governing Board's Goals and Measures, 2001-2002. Revised.
Maricopa County Community Coll. District, Phoenix, AZ.
This report reviews the performance of Arizona's Maricopa Community College District (MCCD) toward achievement of the Governing Board's goals, which reflect the district mission components of (1) transfer and general education; (2) developmental education; (3) workforce development; (4) student development services; (5) continuing/community education; (6) teacher education; and (7) diversity. In fall 2001, students with MCCD credits represented 49% of the undergraduate enrollment at Arizona State University, 21% at Northern Arizona University, and 11% at University of Arizona. MCCD awarded 11,570 degrees and certificates in 2001-02. This study finds that of students who began in the Developmental Reading sequence, the most recent cohort had successfully completed the first college level course within 2 years, and 31-33% of students enrolled in Developmental Math had completed the first college level course within 2 years. Findings from the teacher education programs within MCCD indicate that enrollment in each of the three education transfer courses, which are taken by most teacher education students, has increased by more than 100% since the 1999-00 academic year. More than 65% of students enrolled in Arizona State University's College of Education during fall 2001 had earned credits from one of the Maricopa Community Colleges.
