Long-Range Capital Outlay Growth Plan.
Newmyer, Joseph; And Others
Enrollments in California's community colleges are expected to increase by 500,000 students by the year 2005 with the student body demographics expected to shift towards higher percentages of minorities and women. To address this issue, the Chancellor's Office staff are examining enrollment projections under varying assumptions about future conditions and running computer simulations to estimate capital outlay needs for the system. This report presents the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges' capital outlay growth plan, developed in response to the board's Basic Agenda calling for plans to accommodate projected enrollment growth as well as three other mandates requiring long-range planning for community colleges. Following a brief overview of the plan, an introductory section presents plan objectives, external planning requirements, the planning process, and planning assumptions and conditions. Chapter 1 presents enrollment projections, chapter 2 examines capital outlay planning process and criteria, and chapter 3 reviews alternative methods for accommodating growth. Chapter 4 describes each of the 14 proposed new campuses and 23 proposed new centers to be completed by the year 2005. The final chapter discusses capital outlay funding considerations. Appendixes provide tables of selected planning estimates and capital outlay cost estimates, and brief descriptions of individual district planning conditions. Detailed data tables, figures, and maps are included. (PAA)
