Chapter 1 Introduction


Introduction »»» »History« Northwest Vista College began offering classes in the fall of 1995 as one of the newest additions to the Alamo Colleges. Classes were held at the Northside Independent School District and at partner corporation sites. Our enrollment that first semester was 12 students. In October 1999, the college celebrated its Grand Opening at its newlycompleted campus in northwest San Antonio. Currently there are nearly 15,000 students taking courses at Northwest Vista College and several offsite locations in a traditional daytime classroom setting as well as evening, Internet, hybrid and weekend courses. Most of the programs offered lead to a two-year associate degree or one-year certificate option. Most recently Northwest Vista College opened numerous new buildings throughout its 137 acre campus. In 2008 Juniper Hall, Red Bud Learning Center and Cypress Campus Center opened. Live Oak Hall, Palmetto Center for the Arts and the Mexican Persimmon Physical Plant opened in 2009.

Chapter 9 Glossary of Terms


Glossary »»» Academic Challenge (Community College Survey of Student Engagement Benchmark) – Challenging intellectual and creative work is central to student learning and collegiate quality. Academic challenge survey items address the nature and amount of assigned academic work, the complexity of cognitive tasks presented to students, and the standards faculty members use to evaluate student performance. Active and Collaborative Learning (Community College Survey of Student Engagement Benchmark) – Measures the degree to which students are engaged in active and collaborative learning. Active learning is defined as learning through active involvement, having opportunities to think about, and apply what is being learned. Collaborative learning is defined as learning through collaboration with others to solve problems or master challenging content. Annual Unduplicated Headcount – The total number of students enrolled with each student counted only once during the entire academic year. For example, a student who enrolled in two or more semesters during the year is counted only once. For district totals, students who enrolled at more than one of the ACCD colleges and in more than one term are counted once. Award – The credential granted a student for successful completion of a set curriculum such as a degree or certificate. CBM001 – (Student Report) This report includes all students enrolled at the reporting institution in courses (for which semester credit hours or quarter credit hours are awarded) as of the official census date, which shall be the 12th class day for the fall and spring semesters (16 week sessions) and the 4th class day for each of the summer terms (6 week sessions). CBM004 – (Class Report) This report reflects courses offered as of the official census date which is the 12th class day for the fall and spring semesters (16 week session) and the 4th class day for each of the summer terms (6-week session). All higher education institutions may schedule enrollment periods different from the standard periods noted. This report includes classes in Coordinating Board approved courses for resident credit. CBM008 – (Faculty Report) This report includes all personnel who teach a class that generates credit hours and whose assigned responsibilities are directly related to the teaching function. Credit Students – Students enrolled in a course that can be applied to a degree, diploma, certificate or other formal award. CCSSE – Community College Survey of Student Engagement is a survey instrument which provides information on student engagement. The survey is administered to community college students and asks questions that assess institutional practices and student behaviors that are correlated to student learning and retention. Certification/Licensure/Registration – A process sponsored by an agency or association, and designed by educators in cooperation with business, industry, and/or labor, that validates and/or certifies the skills and learning experiences of a candidate and enters the name of the successful candidate on a registry. Degree – An award conferred by a postsecondary education institution as official recognition for the successful completion of a program of study. Developmental Education – Developmental education refers to the range of courses and activities designed to prepare students to complete credit bearing college level courses successfully. Distance Education – Courses in which the majority of instruction occurs when the students and instructor are not in the same physical setting. A distance education course can be delivered synchronously or asynchronously to any single or multiple locations through electronic modes (e.g., the Internet, video conferencing, television, etc.), by correspondence, or by other means. Duplicated Headcount – Students enrolled at more than one college are counted for each college yielding “duplicated” headcount.
