NOTES

  1. Baseline data is from 2017-18 for the Equity Plan and 2016-17 for Vision for Success (VfS), unless otherwise noted.

  2. *Bachelor's degree average is calculated off 1-year data as Foothill began conferring Bachelor's degrees in Dental Hygiene in 2017-18.

  3. **Transfer to any 4-year institution average is calculated off 3-year data due to the lag time with transfer data; 2017-18 data is not yet available.

  4. ***Median annual earnings average and Attained the living wage average are calculated off 3-year data due to lag time with employment wage data; 2017-18 data not available.

  5. ****Employed in job closely related to field of study is calculated off 2-year data due to lag time in employment data and survey collection; 2016-17/2017-18 data not available.

  6. *****Vision Goal Completion attainment baseline is 2016-17 for VfS but 2017-18 for Equity Plan; Local goal setting default will be 2016-17 as baseline.

  7. VfS = Chancellor's Office Vision for Success goal; Equity Plan goal requirement; ACCJC Annual Report metric
