-Well before the 5 year plan there were some very serious issues that needed to be addressed---student selectivity which was bad before the JUCO arrival, same with student retention and student graduation rates---these were taken care of and are now getting better and better---for whatever reason our alumni giving is not good enough and this could be for no game plan or something else
We all know the financial resources that have effected the La system---as far as administrative peer group rating and the guidance counselor deal I haven't a clue---I have heard that we don't have a sufficient # of Doctoral programs but that has been almost taken care of with new programs popping up
I think that the lag time for some of these criteria (4 years) for R&D is crazy
Think we have done some great things in the 5 years but much more to be done!!!
