THE PROXIMITY FACTOR AND THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE.
SHAWL, WILLIAM
BASED ON WASHINTON STATE ENROLLMENT REPORT INFORMATION FOR THE YEARS 1963, 1964, AND 1965 AND FROM THE OPENING OF TACOMA COMMUNITY COLLEGE IN 1965, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT A NEW COLLEGE WILL CREATE ADDITIONAL ENROLLMENT IN ITS IMMEDIATE AREA AND WILL HAVE NO MEASURABLE EFFECT ON THE ENROLLMENT OF OLDER INSTITUTIONS. IN THE CASE OF TACOMA, WASHINGTON, THE PERCENTAGE OF RECENT HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES WHO ATTENDED COMMUNITY COLLEGE NEARLY DOUBLED (PROXIMITY FACTOR). WHEN A NEW COLLEGE IS PLANNED, THE PROJECTED ENROLLMENT FIGURES SHOULD TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THIS "PROXIMITY FACTOR." TO APPLY THE PERCENTAGE OF STUDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN ATTENDING COLLEGES TO THE SIZE OF CURRENT AND FUTURE GRADUATING CLASSES IS NOT SUFFICIENT. STATISTICAL DATA AND TABLES SUPPORTING THE CONCLUSION ARE INCLUDED. (HS)
