Higher Education Counts: Achieving Results. 2007 Report
Connecticut Department of Higher Education (NJ1)
"Higher Education Counts" is the annual accountability report on Connecticut's state system of higher education, as required under Connecticut General Statutes Section 10a-6a. The report contains accountability measures developed through the Performance Measures Task Force and approved by the Board of Governors for Higher Education. The measures reported are intended to provide external parties with answers to basic questions about institutional performance and return on investments in Connecticut's higher education system. Each of the constituent units of higher education must submit its accountability report to the Commissioner of Higher Education annually by January 1st. The Commissioner, in turn, is charged with compiling and transmitting a consolidated report to the Joint Standing Committees on Education and Higher Education and Employment Advancement by February 1st. The report contains measures designed to assess progress on six statutorily-defined state goals: (1) To enhance student learning and promote academic excellence; (2) To join with elementary and secondary schools to improve teaching and learning at all levels; (3) To ensure access to and affordability of higher education; (4) To promote the economic development of the state to help business and industry sustain strong economic growth; (5) To respond to the needs and problems of society; and (6) To ensure the efficient use of resources. There are no major changes in reporting format this year. The report is organized around a structure which includes three levels of indicators: (1) State-Level Indicators; (2) Common Core of Institutional Measures; and (3) Constituent Unit Specific Indicators. An index is included. [For "Higher Education Counts: Achieving Results. 2007 Executive Summary," see ED532621.]
