Competitive Preference Priorities
  • Priority 1 Increasing Postsecondary Success
    Increase the of high-need students who
    persist in and complete college or other
    postsecondary education and training.
  •  Priority 2 Enabling More Data-Based
    Decision-Making Collect, analyze, and use
    high-quality and timely data on improving
    student outcomes related to enrollment,
    persistence, and completion and leading to career
  •  Priority 3 Improving Productivity
    Significantly increase efficiency in the use of

    improving student learning or other educational
    outcomes. Projects may include innovative and
    sustainable uses of technology, modification of
    school schedules, use of open educational
    resources, or other strategies.

Comprehensive Development Plan
  • Analysis of Strengths and Weaknesses

Academic Programs Weaknesses
  • Incoming students under-prepared for
    college-level coursework and unfamiliar with the
    college-going environment
  • Some groups exhibit particular academic
    behaviors, such as not assessing, not enrolling
    in Basic skills, and attending part-time, have
    consistently demonstrated lower outcomes
  • Students have difficulty navigating the college
    environment to achieve their educational goals
  • Time to completion (or number completing) is
    severely prolonged (limited)
  • Academic and student support service faculty and
    staff lack opportunities for collaboration
  • Persistent achievement gaps require new
    professional development opportunities to address
    equity issues

Institutional Management Weaknesses
  • Lack of coordination and integration of
    successful student and academic support services
  • Lack of efficient organization, effective
    targeting of student needs and coordinated
    service delivery hinder the colleges ability to
    quickly assess and address student needs
  • Improving management weaknesses requires a
    college-wide commitment to schedule time for
    opportunities to collaborate, besides College

Fiscal Stability Weakness Sustainability Plan
  • Lack of stable funding due to historic California
    state budget crisis have led to cuts and layoffs
    for the past 4 years
  • Cutbacks have provided the college an opportunity
    to rebuild, reorganize and institutionalize what
    is developed
  • Increased student retention resulting from the
    successful implementation of our grant proposal
    would generate increased state revenues, allowing
    us to maintain our efforts beyond grant funding
  • Decreased time to completion would attract and
    make room for additional new students
  • Ability to leverage funding from other funding
    sources (HPN, TRIO, Special Programs) supports
