Lone Star College-Montgomery's Foundations of Excellence®At our fall 2010 Convocation we announced that Lone Star College-Montgomery was selected to be a part of Foundations of Excellence (FoE). More than 100 universities and colleges belong to FoE, and all are committed to transforming the way they provide quality services to first-year students. In joining with these colleges, LSC-Montgomery can benchmark itself against some of the very best institutions in the country. Our willingness to examine our strengths and weaknesses will be critical as we move toward the goal of providing our students with the very best experience they can achieve in their formative first year at LSC-Montgomery.
Since that time, we have administered two surveys – one to faculty and staff and one to students. Currently we are in the process of examining the results and creating a plan of action for improvement. We will look to implement our plan in the Fall of 2011.

Both employees and students answer questions along different dimensions, or factors relevant to student experiences. The 9 dimensions are:
4. Campus Culture
6. All Students
8. Roles and Purposes
