Community College Enrollment: Trends and Implications. AIR Forum Paper 1978.
Tatham, Elaine
Factors important to assessing community college enrollment trends and the future implications of these trends are discussed. Changes in college student characteristics included an increased percentage of women and part-time students, increased student age, and more vocational programs. Colleges must monitor their enrollments using existing college and community data. Enrollment projects must be a team effort of the institution, and cooperative efforts of colleges can be beneficial. "Contingency type" planning and the assessment of alternative actions on a regular basis are needed. Charts of population data for Johnson County, Kansas, are included, and necessary elements of an institutional data base are outlined. (SW)
