Washington State Board for Community Coll. Education, Olympia.
Fall 1983 data on enrollments, student characteristics, and personnel at Washington community colleges are provided in this report and contrasted with historical data for fall quarters 1979 through 1982. First, report highlights are presented, indicating: (1) during fall 1983, Washington community colleges enrolled 152,814 students, representing an enrollment decline of 0.1% over the previous year; (2) the number of part-time and female students increased, as did the number of full-time equivalent (FTE) faculty; (3) the percentage of Washington's citizens attending community colleges increased; and (4) the colleges were serving more older and fewer younger students. Part I focuses on enrollment, providing data on headcount and FTE enrollment by funding source (i.e., state monies, external grants and contracts, and student fees). Tables provide overviews of enrollments by course intent category, time/location, instructional subject areas, and full-/part-time status; and of FTE faculty by full-/part-time status. Part II presents data on student characteristics, including information on ethnicity, age, sex, veteran status, residency status, and credit hour loads. Part III offers employment status data on faculty and administrative personnel, and classified staff for the system as a whole and by college. (LAL)
