Fiscal Year 1979 Annual Report.
Massie, Samuel P., Jr.
In accordance with legislative mandate, this annual report summarizes the activities of the Maryland State Board for Community Colleges and those of the state's 17 community colleges. After listing the members of the Board and the community colleges, the report discusses the 1.4% rise in enrollments, changing student characteristics, and the findings of a 1979 follow-up study of community college graduates. The next section of the report deals with instructional programs, focusing on program evaluation, program creation and discontinuance, and continuing education and community and public service activities. A section on community college finance reports on operating expenditures, cost per full-time equivalent student, and major sources of revenue for each college. Additionally, total expenditures and percentage of expenditure by function, as well as percent of distribution, are examined. A summary of allocations provided for capital construction projects at six community colleges is followed by a description of the State Plan for Community Colleges in Maryland and its six major goals. The next section briefly summarizes the legislation enacted during the year that will have an impact on the colleges. The final section lists the areas to be addressed using five Vocational Education Acts grants that were awarded to the State Board. (AYC)
