July 2, 2003
In response to a question of an Iowa State Board of Education member,
the Division of Community Colleges and Workforce Preparation within the
Iowa Department of Education, queried the membership of the National
Council of State Directors of Community Colleges to determine the extent
to which other states have statewide community college strategic plans,
if funding is tied to achieving the objectives of the plan, and if their
goals, objectives, or initiatives are related to non-traditional program
enrollments, to the recruitment enrollment, and success of minority
students, or to the recruitment, hiring, or promotion of women and
Twenty-five (25) states responded to the query; 13 of the responding
states have a statewide strategic plan for the community colleges. In
only two of these states is funding tied to achieving the objectives of
the plan (Georgia and Missouri). Ten (10) states have goals related to
enhancing enrollment in non-traditional programs. Nine (9) states have
goals related to the recruitment, enrollment, and success of minority
students; seven (7) of the responding states have goals related to the
recruitment, hiring, or promotion of women and minorities. (These
responses include Iowa, January 2003.)

The National Council of
State Directors of Community Colleges is an affiliated council of the American
Association of Community Colleges (AACC). The council provides
a forum for the exchange of information about developments, trends, and
problems in state systems of community colleges.
Through our affiliation with
AACC, we also strive to affect national legislation that impacts our
colleges and state agencies.
This is the only Council
that represents the collective interest of state agencies and state
boards of community colleges. This council is a valuable forum to
help state directors deal with the changes in attitude and policies
towards community colleges at the international, federal, state and
local levels. We will share information and learn lessons from
each other to better serve the interests of our institutions in the
