What is the EAC Dashboard?

A dashboard is a visual interface for users that organizes and presents information in a way that is easy to read and interpret. Dashboards are meant to provide visibility into key performance indicators (KPIs) – through simple visual graphics such as gauges, charts and tables – of information most important to the institution. This decision-focused information is intended to be simple to monitor at a glance and, where appropriate, actionable. Ultimately, dashboards are created to provide a unique and powerful means to present information about any range of topics. In many respects, a reporting dashboard can be likened to a dashboard in an automobile. It provides an 'at-a-glance view' of the current operational state of the vehicle. Like an automobile dashboard the EAC Dashboard is meant to provide "gauges" reflecting the operational state of the College.

Note: These rankings do not include Personal Interest majors. The "Personal Interest" category is in reality an undeclared major or life-long learning category which in FY 2016 accounted for 25.6% of annual enrollment. Together the "Top Ten Programs" these programs of study account for 55% of all students enrolled.

Glossary of Terms

Academic program An instructional program leading toward an associate's, bachelor's, master's, doctor's, or first- professional degree or resulting in credits that can be applied to one of these degrees.
Academic year The period of time generally extending from September to June; usually equated to 2 semesters or trimesters, 3 quarters, or the period covered by a 4-1-4 calendar system.
Accumulated depreciation The total depreciation charged as expenses as of the reporting date (in the current year and in prior years) on the capital assets of the institution. FASB Statement No. 117 and GASB Statement No. 34 require that accumulated depreciation to date be recognized.
ACT ACT, previously known as the American College Testing program, measures educational development and readiness to pursue college-level coursework in English, mathematics, natural science, and social studies. Student performance does not reflect innate ability and is influenced by a student's educational preparedness.
Adjunct faculty Non-tenure track faculty serving in a temporary or auxiliary capacity to teach specific courses on a course-by-course basis. Includes both faculty who are hired to teach an academic degree-credit course and those hired to teach a remedial, developmental, or ESL course; whether the latter three categories earn college credit is immaterial. Excludes regular part-time faculty (who, unlike adjuncts are not paid on a course-by-course basis), graduate assistants, full-time professional staff of the institution who may teach individual courses (such as a dean or academic advisor), and appointees who teach non-credit courses exclusively.
Adjusted cohort The result of removing any allowable exclusions from a cohort (or sub-cohort). For the Graduation Rates component, this is the cohort from which graduation and transfer-out rates are calculated; for the Fall Enrollment component, it is the cohort for calculating retention rate.
Admissions (students admitted) Applicants that have been granted an official offer to enroll in a postsecondary institution.
American Indian or Alaska Native (new definition) A person having origins in any of the original peoples of North and South America (including Central America) who maintains cultural identification through tribal affiliation or community attachment.
Annual contract An annually-renewable contract or employment agreement that is in effect for a stated annual period within one year of execution, and may be equal to a period of 365 days, or a standard academic year, or the equivalent. Does not include contracts for partial year periods such as a single semester, quarter, term, block, or course.
Asian (new definition) A person having origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, or the Indian Subcontinent, including, for example, Cambodia, China, India, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippine Islands, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Associate's Colleges (Carnegie) An institutional classification developed by the Andrew W. Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Associate's Colleges offer associate's degree and certificate programs but, with few exceptions, award no baccalaureate degrees . This group includes institutions where, during the period studied, bachelor’s degrees represented less than 10 percent of all undergraduate awards.
Associate's degree An award that normally requires at least 2 but less than 4 years of full-time equivalent college work.

METRIC 1
FY 15 Tuition Cost Comparisons to Other Rural Arizona Community Colleges

Only EAC caps maximum tuition at per semester for 12 credits or above. Other rural community colleges do not cap tuition cost. In addition only EAC among rural colleges gives a full tuition scholarship for seniors.

National Community College Benchmarking Project Market Penetration Rate

Our market penetration rate at 18% (the percentage of total population of the college's service area) accessing educational services at EAC ranks close to the top nationally at the 97th percentile in comparison to 267 community colleges nation-wide. The percentage of people served is an even more significant accomplishment when the availability of unrestricted funds available to EAC ranks at on of the lowest at the 7th percentile nationally when compared to the same peer group of 267 community colleges. In the current reporting year the College was recognized in 3 market penetration categories: credit hour students, non-credit students and public meetings. EAC is the only community college in Arizona to be included in these "best practices" categories.
