    Preface

    The Mt. San Antonio College Continuing Education Self-Study is the result of more than 18 months of data collection, analysis, discussion, and planning. The Self-Study report reflects the honest efforts of Division stakeholders to continuously work towards implementation of the Vision through improvement of programs and services for students.

    Planning for the Self-Study included thoughtful consideration of existing organizational structures in place to support dialogue, and new structures needed to fully meet the expectations of the Self-Study. The Continuing Education Leadership Team has led the Self-Study process. A Continuing Education Advisory Group, made up of faculty and classified program representatives, management, and College/community partners who are focused on Planning for Institutional Effectiveness (PIE), will help ensure long-term implementation of WASC ACS accreditation processes. The Profile Team is an ongoing group that facilitates collection and compilation of data throughout the Division. Program Teams provided the core evidence collection and evaluation work of the Self-Study. Finally, Standards Teams played the role of synthesizing the findings gathered through all resources and writing the Self-Study narrative. Participants on each team were chosen to represent the broad array of programs and services across the Division.

    Effective communication played a critical role in the Self-Study process. Each Program Team and Standard Team had designated chairs that coordinated meetings, discussions, evidence collection and analysis, and acted as the primary liaisons with the Self-Study Coordinator. Electronic communication tools such as MyPortal Groups, Dropbox, Google Docs, and email were used by teams as needed. Letters from the Dean, program newsletters, and team meetings were used to let the Division know about accreditation progress.

    The Self-Study provided many benefits. It created an opportunity for faculty and staff to affirm the many strengths of Continuing Education. Intense program review provided a confirmation of the successful work done with students and an opportunity to share accomplishments, as well as best practices, within the Division and across the College. As a result of the process there has also been greater shared responsibility for communication and planning throughout Continuing Education. Participants noted that the process fostered collaboration, teamwork, an improvement in working relationships, and a feeling of inclusion among Division employees. The Self-Study process led participants to have greater understanding of other programs in the Division and a deeper insight into their own areas. There has been a widely-felt appreciation for the increased communication across the Division and the opportunity to participate in goal setting. The collection of evidence, increased availability of data, and rigorous focus on data driven discussions has helped Continuing Education to better understand students’ needs and establish growth areas for continuing program improvement.
