Long-Range Plan, 1978-83.
This nine-part, long-range plan discusses the internal and external factors that will affect Lorain County Community College's (LCCC's) development from 1978 to 1983 and presents a forecast of LCCC's future needs. Part I traces the history of LCCC, provides a conceptual framework for college planning, and discusses the plan development process within which the long-range plan was constructed. Part II discusses planning assumptions and objectives related to LCCC's mission, philosophy, and goals. Part III predicts trends for 1978 to 1983 in Ohio higher education; the demography of the LCCC service area and its occupational and transportation outlook; the economics of higher education; competition for students from four-year institutions; government legislation affecting LCCC planning; and college enrollment. Parts IV-VII outline planning assumptions and goals in the areas of: (1) programs and services, including those designed to serve "nontraditional students"; (2) organization and planning; (3) human resources; and (4) physical facilities. Part VIII presents financial profiles and projections and Part IX outlines long-range plan evaluation procedures, including follow-up studies, community needs assessments, program evaluations, zero-based budgeting, and institutional audits.
