11 p. 

In conjunction with the Educational Testing Service and the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges, Greenfield Community College involved students and faculty in an institutional goals inventory designed to identify discrepancies between "what is" and "what should be." The study addressed two types of institutional goals: (1) outcome goals, that is, substantive aims such as the provision of specific community services or curricular offerings; and (2) process goals relating to the campus climate, which help facilitate the achievement of the outcome goals. The outcome goals evaluated in the study were related to general education, intellectual orientation, lifelong learning, cultural awareness, personal development, humanism/altruism, vocational/technical preparation, developmental/remedial preparation, community services, and social criticism. The process goals assessed in the inventory were relevant to counseling and advising, student services, faculty/staff development, intellectual environment, innovation, college community, freedom, accessibility, effective management, and accountability. The study report provides graphs illustrating inventory findings in terms of the mean discrepancies between the perceptions of students and faculty with regard to each of the 20 goals. Definitions for each of the goals are also provided. (JP)
