Community Junior Colleges.
Lefstad, Dana J.
This paper, prepared by the Colorado Department of Education, describes the growth of the State's community college movement through 1966. Information is presented on enrollment, credit hours, funding, and salaries. Projections were not made because of the number of variables: (1) employment rate, (2) draft requirements, (3) cost of living, (4) the size of high school graduating classes, (5) the interest of the community on certain programs, (6) the number of applicants who do not complete registration, (7) the progress of the building programs, (8) the retention rate from quarter to quarter, and (9) the fluidity of course offerings and enrollment figures as they affect each other. At the time of writing, there were seven junior college districts, of which six were operating colleges. Two more campuses were expected to open in the fall. Several plans for a state system of community colleges population centers in Colorado have been something of a establishment of new districts until current issues could be resolved by the 1967 General Assembly. The vast distances between population centers in Colorado have been something of a disadvantage, but, in spite of this handicap, the people have recognized the opportunities offered by the colleges and have been enrolling in increasing numbers.
