A STUDY OF THE NEED FOR A JUNIOR COLLEGE IN THE SALT LAKE METROPOLITAN AREA.
SMITH, RALPH B.
A POPULATION INCREASE OF 71 PERCENT IS EXPECTED IN UTAH BETWEEN 1960 AND 1980. THE GREATEST GROWTH IS EXPECTED IN THE SALT LAKE METROPOLITAN AREA. THE COLLEGE AGE GROUP (18 TO 21 YEARS) WILL INCREASE BY 80 PERCENT BETWEEN 1960 AND 1970. IF CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATES ARE USED, THE PROPOSED JUNIOR COLLEGE COULD EXPECT AN ENROLLMENT OF APPROXIMATELY 2,000 STUDENTS IN THE FIRST YEAR OF OPERATION. SUBSEQUENT ENROLLMENT MAY BE AS HIGH AS 6,000 STUDENTS. SUGGESTED CURRICULAR OFFERINGS SHOULD INCLUDE UNIVERSITY-PARALLEL COURSES, REMEDIAL PROGRAMS, AND A WIDE RANGE OF OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMS NOT PRESENTLY OFFERED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF UTAH OR SALT LAKE TRADE TECHNICAL INSTITUTE. INFORMATION RELATING TO THE COST OF EDUCATING JUNIOR COLLEGE STUDENTS AND EXPENDITURES FOR CAPITAL OUTLAY WAS INCLUDED IN THE STUDY. THE COLLEGE PLANT WILL COST APPROXIMATELY $16 1/2 MILLION TO ENROLL 6,000 STUDENTS AT A PER STUDENT COST OF $2,750. (HS)
