Data dialogue – Jeannie
shared the results of the survey from out-of-state students regarding their
experiences at MCC. Top reasons for coming were: courses offered, location,
program and family. Along with family, friends or word-of-mouth (46.2%) was
noted as top method of learning about MCC,
internet search (38.5%) was a close second. This confirms the need for how we
present ourselves on the web. There was also concern from the non-credit (MLI)
international students feeling isolated and unsupported. There is little
support after international students complete the MLI program.There is nothing after MLI for integration into the credit program.It is important to include MLI student responses to the survey.Jeannie will follow up with Alice Luther to determine response rate.Alvin was asked to present a follow up on how these issues are being or have been
It was also
noted that there are not enough places for students to meet due to the lack of library (note library
has since restored its hours), TLC and Pa`ina service hours.Amina reported that they have been working to include and involve the MLI
students in more group activities and provide more means of information.Clyde encouraged the student leadership to continue to provide feedback to this committee so that ways to meet student needs can be
addressed.Frances suggested that student mentoring be considered.
.flo presented the Comprehensive Program Review Recommendations, the
Annual Program Review Recommendations, and the Instructional Program Review
Budget Requests.Much of the funds
received from the Legislature were primarily for positions.This year supplies and equipment funds were
added.Instruction is looking at
alternative methods of funding to support supplies and equipment purchase, e.g.
Perkins and RDP funds.They have been
trying to put budget items in order and then
are looking for resources to fund them.Both
instructional and academic support program reviews must present a prioritized
list of requests for support.
It was also
noted that it would be beneficial to see the data relationship to the funding request so the campus
can see why new positions are being introduced and what the rationale behind
them may be.For example, in the
Library, we need to look at how does the Library improve the learning process
and how current and proposed staff work with faculty and students affect
learning, what are the Library connections with faculty and programs, and
whether there is a teaching module for off campus students and faculty; in
addition to the technical and circulation data
relationships to programs. Some
of these data points will be coming up in the assessment step of the program
review process.It was noted that the
System is trying to identify program review criteria that all of the campuses
will use.The Library comprehensive
review of this campus is being used as the model and could influence other
libraries through clarifying outcomes related to its contributions to student learning.
further recommended that under the “plans” section for the coming year, a
preface indicating that these are coming from the program review recommendations
and data on how it will improve student outcome should be included.

the following year that will help increase income include a Lumens on-line registration
which should increase registration by 33% without additional staff.
