Accomplishment Extent: Objective Partially Met (7/10)
The committee became more aware of community activities through the reporting of several committee members. Needs of the community were also brought to the committee by members. This was as far as we were able to go. Prior workloads for all members of the committee were too heavy to do some of the originally brainstormed ideas for community connections. Steps to meet the objective: Have more time in the day and have some focus provided on the ideas developed as to whether the direction and concept is one that RCC should pursue. Unexpected Results: Yes, as a committee we discovered that many RCC/RWC employees are reaching out to the community for donations of time, goods, and/or services. We also discovered that many community businesses are continually contacted due to their generosity of donations. With this in mind, the committee recommends documenting who reaches out to the community and what the nature of the contacts are. After the information has been gathered and compiled, someone, perhaps the Community Connections committee, should monitor the outreaches process. This process may be similar to what is done with grant work at RCC, and would include all types of community outreach contacts. We would also recommend a current survey of the boards and volunteer efforts of our staff. Perhaps, RCC should embark on an annual recognition of community groups as way to recognize our participation in community and theirs with RCC.
Assessment Tools Used:
Banners were made for the Redwood Campus. We created a different look to the JoCo Fair booth with more interactive things for visitors and Redwood Trees.

Redwood Campus Objective 24
RCC Redwood will develop a leadership framework to foster communication among the Redwood managers, faculty and staff by holding quarterly campus meetings.
Accomplishment Extent: Objective Partially Met (5/10)
Many social and educational events including our First Friday forums helped build community and encourage staff to learn more about each other and programs offered on the campus. We held a number of fun events including the holiday tea party, barbeques and social events While this did not officially meet our objective we felt it was a better and more useful way to build community in light of the difficulty issues staff were dealing with after the reorganization.We focused on creating a local RAT (Redwood Academic Team) team to bring leadership to the RWC instructional process. This was a successful group of department heads and service leaders who met regularly. Our official leadership council will be part of year two of our plan. We hope to make specific invitations to that body in summer and initiate the first set of meeting in the fall. Unexpected Results: We realized that we were not ready for a full leadership council since we were still getting our RWC management team up and running. We wanted to make sure that we had a firm grasp on just what the purpose of the leadership council would be and throughout the year we assessed the role and the relationship this group would have to the RATS, SDC and other campus councils and committees. In May we put together our plan to bring our leadership council together during the coming summer and fall terms.
Assessment Tools Used:
We did provide a structured spring and fall term inservice experience for Redwood aimed at leadership and communication. We also held a classified retreat to address Redwood classified issues. Out of those forums we decided to postpone the leadership council which we had hoped would meet quarterly. We decided the framework should wait until fall term 04 in favor of developing stronger communications through more interesting and fun events that would engage the staff in a fun and productive manner. We held seven events aimed at building stronger sense of community at the RWC campus. We held regular RATS and other campus council and committee meetings to gather input and share vision.
Redwood Campus Objective 25
The leadership team will review its representation on key college committees, and the process for reporting into regular team meetings.
Accomplishment Extent: Objective Met (9/10)
We still need to address the number of hours people are spending on committee work and see what we can do to reduce either the number of meetings or make sure representation is at an effective level.
Assessment Tools Used:
our RWC management agendas changed over the year to reflect this change. We went from an items based agenda to an agenda that gave each member a chance to report out to the whole group on their column areas and on the college committees they represent. WE also assigned key personnel to committees where we previously had no representation.
Table Rock Campus Objective 15
Organization: Empower staff to identify and develop appropriate solutions. Manage, utilizing team approach. Demonstrated through development and participation of a staff development workshop on cross-functional problem solving.

Accomplishment Extent: Objective Met (10/10)
We were able to make this staffing change. Patrice Ballard retired and we combined her 19 hour position with Bonnie Conard's 19 hour position to create the 29 hour position. Bonnie Conard was moved into the new position. This became effective Fall 2003. Unfortunately, for the RWC GED program the number of people testing dropped from the patterns of the previous year. Because of that the 29 hour position was moved to RVC, Betsy McDonald was promoted into the position and Bob Keadle was transferred from RVC to RWC in his 19 hour position. (Bonnie Conard was promoted into advanced secretary position at RVC).
Assessment Tools Used:
Change in staffing pattern.
Unexpected Results:
It was unexpected that the demand on the GED Testing at RWC would drop off enough that 29 hours of staff time was not needed.

Integrated Learning Communities: Provide an integrated learning experience as indicated through the development and implementation of a pilot project. For example, the electronics AAS program will be integrating writing and mathematics into the curriculum.
Accomplishment Extent: Objective Met (10/10)
Two courses were developed and implemented to integrate coursework. Integration of coursework will continue next year by looking at models to effectively integrate mathematics into the discipline. There was a lot of interest in what the pilot project had achieved and several other programs at TRC already want to implement our model.
Assessment Tools Used:
A learning community, very broadly defined, is “a learner-centered system that coordinates trainings and services into seamless paths of instruction”. The strength of a learning community is in the integrated, systems approach to education where disciplines are interwoven into a student’s program of study. Integrated educational experiences closely parallel the way people learn and are more relevant to real world situations. In the past year, the WR199 and WR299 courses have been developed and are now required courses in the Electronics AAS degree. The purpose of this course is to integrate the academic writing that students do with the technical writing in the electronics program. In this model, the Online Writing Lab (OWL) was introduced and used by students (WR199). The OWL has an extensive Electronics Engineering resource section that is enhanced with sample documents and student examples to help students write effectively in the discipline. The WR299 is being enhanced to help students create, organize and develop their EET250 Capstone Portfolio projects.
