Maryland State Board for Community Colleges. Annual Report, Fiscal Year 1980.
Maryland State Board for Community Colleges, Annapolis.
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 institutions, the report discusses the 2.6% rise in enrollments, changing student characteristics, and the findings of a 1980 follow-up study of 26,829 persons who entered a Maryland community college for the first time in Fall 1976. 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 follows, reporting on operating expenditures, cost per full-time equivalent student, and major sources of revenue for each college. Additionally, total expenditures and the percentage of expenditures by function are examined. A summary of allocations provided for capital construction projects at 11 community colleges is followed by a description of the "State Plan for Community Colleges in Maryland" and its seven major goals. The next section briefly summarizes the legislation enacted during the year that will have an impact on the colleges. The final section indicates how five grants awarded by the State Department of Education's Vocational-Technical Education Division will be used. (JP)
