New Mexico State Board of Educational Finance, Santa Fe.
This six-part factbook describes the history, programs, and financial status of New Mexico's two-year post-secondary institutions. Part I discusses the legal basis for the state's two-year colleges and describes the coordination of the five types of public two-year institutions operating under New Mexico law: constitutional institutions, branch community colleges, district junior colleges, technical and vocational institutions, and area vocational schools. Part II presents one-page descriptions of each of the 16 individual institutions. These narratives include a history of the school's establishment; descriptions of its service area, programs offered, and number and types of students served; and an outline of its goals. Part III presents data pertaining to students, focusing on enrollment trends, demographic information, and 1978-79 tuition and fees. Part IV discusses the types of vocational and academic programs offered at the schools and presents data showing the number of people taking and completing courses in 1978-79. In the case of vocational programs, information is also provided about the number of students who have been employed or have continued their education. Part V discusses the history and current status of college revenues and expenditures. The final section provides capital outlay data for the construction of facilities at each of the institutions.
