Chapter IV considers the philosophy, mission, and goals of WACC. Finally, chapter V presents institutional and organizational objectives and action plans, reviewing progress made between 1984 and 1986 in the following areas: vocational technical education, general education, developmental education, lifelong education, counseling and advising, effective management, accessibility and student services, staff development, intellectual orientation, student personal development, college community, instruction, resources, and physical plant.
