South Plains College Board of Regents met in a regular meeting Thursday.
1) Regents heard a report from the Vice President for Student Affairs on the enrollment report for the fall semester. Enrollment campus wide for all SPC campuses was down 1.1% or 104 students. It was noted that enrollment on the Levelland campus was up 4.3%. It was pointed out a decrease in enrollment in Dual Credit courses. Enrollment in the fall semester is down 22%, the decrease is being attributed to a large number of students have gone to internet courses for dual credit and they are not part of the enrollment numbers. It was also pointed out 16 teachers in this area have quit teaching dual credit courses.
It was also noted that the average enrollment over the last 10 years is 9,605 students and enrollment this semester was 9,606.
2) Regents also reviewed a copy of the Quality Enhancement Plan which has been submitted to the team scheduled for on site visits to the campus for accreditation review in mid October.
3) Regents also received a schedule for the accreditation visit which will be October 14-18. Many administrators and faculty have spent tireless hours preparing for the visit which is required of Colleges and Universities every 10 years.
Regents also received a construction update. It was reported that all projects are on schedule.
