Enrollment Update with Projections

Rogers informed the Committee that the final enrollment for all three campuses for fall 2005 is 6,196. The Stockton campus total is 4,615 with 800 new freshmen. The San Francisco campus total is 507 and the Sacramento campus is 1074. He pointed out that most of the growth in the past few years is in undergraduates and that Caucasian enrollment is currently just under 50%.

Program Review of Business and Finance

Cavanaugh discussed the option of not only reviewing the business and finance part of the department but also reviewing customer service. The Board of Regents feel that customer service is a very important part of program review. Offices like Admissions, Financial Aid, and the Registrar's Office are vital areas of customer service and should be reviewed accordingly. There may be a  need to customize program review and evaluate it's key purpose.
