Designed as a source of current information and as a guide to future activities in Maryland's community colleges, this report provides a systemwide overview of trends, goals, and needs, and quantitative data for each community college. Chapter I explains the format, purposes, and uses of the report and outlines policy areas that will require resolution in the coming year. Chapter II highlights the mission of Maryland's community colleges, presents a history of community colleges nationally and in the state, discusses the Maryland system's governance structure, and considers state and local coordination. Chapter III examines general conditions, trends, and projections in the areas of enrollment, instructional and support programs, faculty, finance, and facilities. Chapter IV reviews the goals and objectives of the Maryland State Board for Community Colleges and of the colleges themselves and discusses implementation strategies and programs toward meeting the goals identified in previous years. The current strengths of Maryland's community colleges are highlighted in chapter V, along with emerging policy areas requiring study (e.g., critical manpower training and retraining areas, linkages with state manpower training entities, and new instructional formats). Chapter VI provides an overview of the present status and future growth of the 17 individual community colleges in the state. Appendices include definitions, enrollment and financial data, and information on the state's management information systems. (HB)
