Tollefson, Terrence A.
Two reports are presented in this document prepared for the Colorado State Legislature. The first, a zero-base budget review, presents a summary of the characteristics of the student population served by Colorado's 11 junior colleges. The summary includes statistics on age range, state of residence, gender, ethnic background, types of financial aid received, and credit hour enrollment. Summary budget data are presented for the state system including a description of the budgetary status of the system for fiscal year (FY) 1978-79, and a list of summary conclusions based on the zero-base budget review reports submitted by the individual colleges. The second document, a budget overview for FY 1978-79, consists of an introduction and six narrative sections dealing with: (1) the development of the comprehensive community junior college in general and its specific development in Colorado; (2) the role, mission, goals, and objectives of the Colorado state system of community colleges; (3) a description of systemwide organization and operation; (4) an account of systemwide accomplishments; and (5) a discussion of budgeting in general as well as a description of the zero-base budget review process as it operates within the Colorado system. Several exhibits in the form of charts, tables, and maps accompany the reports. (DR)
