15 Unfunded Mandates by the Legislature Background Checks – State requires fingerprint- based background checks of faculty and staff (dual credit at HS) Licensure Data – State removed itself completely from the collection of this data and requires each institution to gather its own College Investments – requires all investments to be collateralized 15

18 Momentum Points Background Ensuring long-term economic growth & prosperity Community colleges enroll half of students in Texas Texas must award an additional 46,000 credentials annually by 2015 – 28% increase Strengthen efforts in increasing student career and academic readiness, and increase progress and achievement of milestones by all students 18

19 Momentum Points Model Based on research by Teachers College at Columbia University Model measures performance in a way to provide incentives to community colleges Milestones are measurable attainments correlated with a student’s momentum through a program Milestone concept – holds community colleges accountable for student success Each Metric is directly aligned with the core mission of community colleges – from least prepared to the most college ready students 19

20 Momentum Points Metric College Readiness -2 points (1 for math, 1 for reading/writing) 1 st College Level Math Course -1 point 15 Credits Completed – 1 point 30 Credits Completed – 1 point Transfer w/15 hours or more – 2 points Degree/Certificate earned – 2 points 20

21 THECB vs. Community College Proposal THECB – Allocate 90% of formula based on enrollment and allocate 10% of formula based on momentum points; all 50 community colleges compete for the 10%; implement in FY 2013 Community Colleges – Given current budget crisis do not implement at this time; use FY 2012 to establish a baseline; measure movement against institution. 21

24 The Future Learning Quality Efficiency 24

25 Focus Create and nurture a learning-centered environment in which students, faculty, staff, and the community at- large can achieve their greatest potential. Identify and serve the learning needs of the community (Learning) Cultivate excellence in teaching, instructional delivery, student services, and administrative support (Quality) Provide reliable and sustainable resources and funding for the college (Efficiency) 25

26 Why and How You might wonder what does learning, quality, and efficiency have to do with future funding? We are ahead of the curve when it comes to performance measures. All of our work with post SACS accreditation and Achieving the Dream has placed us in an excellent position to move forward in this new era of performance funding and shrinking resources. 26

27 Our Goal & Strategy Our goal is not to use a broad brush to change, improve or cut programs and cost, but to use a fine detailed brush to make these changes. Our goal to improve learning and quality is centered on the students and their needs. This “hedgehog” focus will result in the efficiencies required to keep moving this institution forward. 27

28 Funding - Efficiency We have recognized that state support for community colleges is diminishing Aligned our Strategic Goals with our Core Mission Implemented cost saving measures:  Printing  Document imaging  Realigning workflow/departments  Increase utilization of Colleague  Targeted professional development 28

29 Quality Demand quality of all employees Insure quality education Implemented initiatives that assist students in movement through:  First college level Math  Developmental Education  Core Certificate Completion  Transfer  Graduation 29

30 Success Whether you prevail or fail depends more on what you do to yourself than on what the world does to you. 30

31 Success Performance funding/Momentum points – reward and reinforce what we have already begun Focus  Students  Student Learning Outcomes  Improving Student Services 31

32 Focus = Success Learning Quality Efficiency 32

33 Conclusion Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness is largely a matter of conscious choice, and discipline. 33
