|Measure: A two part measure which includes: |
1) The percent of other-race undergraduate students enrolled at an institution and
2) An annual retention rate for other race students as compared to that of all non-other race students
Directional Arrow: Up, until an institutions enrollment reaches the percentage of other race in the service area population (technical colleges and regional colleges) or the state (teaching and research institutions)
Definition: 'Other race' for institutions other than historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) would be African-American students; 'other race' for HBCUs would be White, non-Hispanic students.
Method of Reporting: Computed from CHEMIS data, institutional reports, and South Carolina Statistical Abstract.
NOTE: For further review for Year 4, FY 1999-2000 additional possible submeasures:
- Total Credit Hours Generated Off-Campus in Counties Where No Comparable Program is Offered By a Public Institution.
- The Total Number of Credit Hours Generated In-State Through Distance Education.
Both possible submeasures are pending the development of a statewide plan.
