Narrative

Local awareness of the individual courses and overall curriculum as offered by the ACEDD/CAD Department is in need of
improvement in order to provide for increasing demand as identified by Labor Market Research. Dedicated personnel to
accomplish off‐campus outreach activities are needed to supplement the current abilities of the full‐time faculty.Maintenance of previously‐developed Department webpage (within the RHC site), maintenance of one or more social media
accounts (Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.), and continued purchase of internet‐based advertising will significantly increase the Department’s
exposure to potential students who are increasingly web‐connected and exposed to such forms of communication.
Costs for such marketing efforts are projected at $500 annual maintenance of webpage and social media accounts. For internet
advertising, a budget of $1500 would be allocated but actual costs could be less with the use of pay‐per‐click ads.Students, including those ones taking classes within the Department, others on the RHC campus in other areas, and potential to Rio
Hondo who have visited the school for various reasons have only minimal exposure to the more advanced areas of study within the
ACEDD/CAD Department. Computer‐based 3D modelling and the physical creation of such models using our existing equipment are
one example. Surveying and the use of our commonplace industry equipment is another. With only a vague understanding of such
areas of study, the student interest wanes and the training or potential employees reduces accordingly. With the Labor Market
Research CoE data showing need for qualified personnel having skills that can be acquired in our Department’s capstone classes
(such as 3D Modelling & Surveying), improvement local interest of the potentially‐learned skills will lead to the training required to
provide the needed supply of appropriate technicians.A significant increase in enrollment in those courses for which seminars/exhibitions are offered will evidence the success of such
endeavors.
