In addition to Day of Champions have a day for everyone to pitch in and work on the school and strictly around the campus. Lack of campus activities More activities for the students to attend to keep them busy More student activities out side of sports Need for improved student activity centers need more and varied extracurricular student activities Need more on campus activities such as key clubs etc. Capacity to deliver services

The need for a bigger, more permanent building in Stephenville, TX The need for a facility where students can congregate and socialize - a student center The overall up keep of the campus facilities The residential students need a student union or other common gathering place. there is no place for students to go and nothing for them to do after classes and practices are over. Update the building updated buildings on campuses Upgrade facilities We need more and more energy effecient dorm rooms Bigger facility in Stephenville, TX gym needs to be air conditioned cleaning and fixing of bathrooms on campus they never flush and it makes people want to leave campus to use one. Better & more class rooms Dorms If RC, Ranger is to grow, more housing for students is needed Improvements could be made to the dorm rooms Putting more money into dorms Better lab Early Lighted areas for outdoor evening events--volleyball, etc. Maintenance - the Ranger campus needs many repairs/improvements. name of the college--doesn't indicate Brownwood/Brown County affiliation Existing Stephenville Campus needs consolidated into One highly visible campus available space for students to study with access to computers campus to small? Build a new location away from campus Dedicated computerized testing center All living quarters need to be upgraded Negative environment on the Main Campus, Dorm Rooms Faculty and staff may not feel supported. faculty and staff need a better and more complete understanding of contemporary two year college curricular and funding issues Poor faculty development fast student reimbursement

Aging leadership Location advertise to draw public attention to the college advertising Funds for Advertising in media and on billboards More advertisement for college More advertising on classes offered in Comanche More campus visibility in Stephenville Public Awareness of Programs Recruiting Materials -Lack of professional appearing flyers that are specific to programs we offer Weak public relations in previous years work with your local newspaper Our lack of any kind of marketing budget at all means that our competitors are pushing their message much farther. limited community awareness of programs to general populace We advertise our costs based on 15 credit hours, yet require our students

14 14 --Open House --Open House --Public Exposure Meal Plan More Active with Secondary Schools More Faculty More Faculty More Faculty More Faculty and Staff More Faculty and Staff More Online & Noncredit Courses More Staff No Comradeship Online Offerings Online Offerings Online Offerings Online Offerings Online Offerings Online Offerings Online Offerings Diminishing Brick and Mortar Pass Rates for Nursing Graduates Pay Scale Pay Scale Pay Scale Pay Scale Pay Scale Pay Scale Pay Scale WEAKNESSES to sign up for more, creating a feeling of false advertising/distrust from our students when things do not match up. Other schools advertise based on REAL costs and many have gone to a standard / block cost for full time students to avoid these discrepancies. have a open house Invite HS students to see existing programs Example: Nursing or Cosmetology lack of public exposure More variations in meal plan. College administrators need to take a more active role in the high schools need additional faculty need more faculty Not enough faculty for RN program, including dedicated Student Counselor/Mentor for RN & LVN program Need more full time faculty and staff to meet growth needs Not enough personel to accomplish what is expected of some departments Need more on-line credit & non-credit courses offered by local instructors need additional personnel don't offer comradeship Not having online classes having a required face to face meeting (teacher/student) at the beginning of the year online course offerings online course offerings Online nursing courses Online summer courses Web based education is a must for the future Online learning diminishing brick & mortar opportunities nursing doesn't achieve pass rates Because of finanical difficulties, RC doesn't provide salaries close to other sister colleges, which is a problem when trying to find suitable new employess better pay for staff to match other colleges in the area Better salaries for the VN program to enable program to get better staff to ensure a better educated student competitive wages, facilities / campuses Losing good staff due to low pay scale Money for competitive salaries pay rates

Too low a pay scale for job to be done faculty expertise; professionalism Market maturity/saturation in the nursing program "canned classes" Quality of instruction Quality of Instuctors Some students have expressed concern with courses that are not rigorous. Ability to respond rapidly to respond to employer training needs need to a recruitor for Voc. Classes recruiting of highly qualified faculty recruitment-get the good local kids here.ie;upward bound programs Barriers with Larger Universities in area Not fostering a positive relationship with Tarleton State University Interaction with high school programs Resources & supplies for faculty, as well as student access Issues receiving things in a timely manner, Ex. grades It takes too long to receive grades at the high school level which causes us to be late with report cards. Poor response time to questions providing adequate resources and support services to our growing student population Safety ( doors locked at earlier Early) Bigger colleges offer more Continuous expansion of social networking by students keeping quality coaches/consistency in staff low standards for classes - high school level strategic planning No mechanisms to overcome student class absences Sports Absences Student attendance better accountability of students addresses and phone numbers through Campus Connect student apathy student disinterest in classic education, college degree students entitlement Students have little/no awareness of collegiate academic protocol

Internet Internet lack of technology and training to use it More technology could be put into the classrooms more technology for all offices much improved technology Need faster internet and better wifi so students are able to complete their online assignments office technology on campus technology Poor technical equipment to support distance education some technological defeciancies technical equipment technology behind but gaining rapidly needs a serious upgrade technology training Telephone Telephone Syatem To few computers for students Updated equipment updating technology upgraded technology

17 17 Testing Testing Testing Testing Testing Testing Testing Training Transferability WEAKNESSES We have been weak in technology but are working on that. We need more technology in our classes. wifi more computer techniology critical assessment skills Having online students come to the campus for a proctored tests defeats the purpose of online courses. New Accuplacer Test New testing requirements that would possibly not allow a student to enroll STARR test State mandates for new testing and new tests trends toward standardizing tests/curriculum More traning from the financial aid office transferability Accreditation Alumni Alumni Athletics Athletics Athletics Athletics Brown County Referendum Brown County Referendum Brown County Referendum Campus Activities Campus Activities Campus Activities Campus Activities Campus Activities OPPORTUNITIES QEP Alumni Program Ex-students as project-based funders expand athletic programs Invite more students to walk-on and try out for the activities (academic or athletic) they dream of doing at the college level. J.v programs sports programs Brown County Referendum Having the Brown County Referendum pass in Fall 2013 Referendum at Brownwood Have a student recreation center for students and have it open on weekends for the students to have something to do Have more activities for the students to participate in on campus because so many of them do not have cars Maybe have a concert or certain event every other month Offer an intramural sports program for the students unable to make an athletic team as a walk-on.
