Community colleges are having a positive impact in New Mexico based on a number of performance indicators that were reviewed during The University of New Mexico-Los Alamos Advisory Board meeting Monday night on the UNM-LA campus.
UNM-LA Executive Director Dr. Cedric Page spoke about personnel matters and the college’s annual performance report. He presented a report about New Mexico community colleges that showed the results of community college performance-based indicators.
There are 10 areas in which colleges are measured: percent (of students) successful after three years; percent complete within 150 percent of time; percent placed in jobs in New Mexico; percent of white students enrolled; percent of Asian graduates; number enrolled in ABE (Adult Basic Education); number enrolled in SBDC (Small Business Development Centers) program; percent of programs with stable or increasing enrollment; percent persisting to following spring; and percent placed in jobs or continuing education in New Mexico.
Page said these measures reflect the impact of two-year schools.
“We’re getting our students out in a reasonable amount of time,” he said. “Seventy-four percent are completing (a degree) in three years.”
