Information on enrollments, personnel, finances, and facilities in Washington state community colleges is provided in this report for the four quarters of 1982-83 and for previous years.

Next, enrollment data are presented for each college. Section II provides information on faculty and administrative staff and average base salaries by college and for the system as a whole. Section III presents an overview of community college financial operations, including costs per FTE student, sources of funding, and expenditures by program and object. Finally, section IV examines facilities and capital planning for each college and the state system. Appendices include a chart showing vocational program offerings, information on student tuition and fees, and a list of publications. Report highlights include comparisons with 1981-82 data, showing a 4% decline in FTE students, a 2% decline in FTE faculty, and a 2% decline in the number of course sections offered. (LAL)
