Gerstle, Marian May; Hale, Earl
Designed to answer those questions most frequently asked about the Washington Community Colleges by members of the legislature, state and external agencies, citizens, college administrators, faculty and students, this report presents data on enrollments, personnel, facilities, and finances for the four academic quarters from summer 1990 through spring 1991. Introductory material provides a history of the system, a student enrollment profile, a course profile, and a comparison of annual full-time equivalencies (FTEs) by funding source by college. Section I provides enrollment data, including annual headcount and FTEs by funding source. Section II examines staff and faculty characteristics, including FTE faculty by employment status and college, and classified employees by employment status, assignment area, and college. Section III reviews facilities and capital funding, providing a facilities inventory summary, and data on campus size. The final section presents financial data, including expenditures by source of funds, cost per state-funded student FTE, and expenditure detail, and federal vocational fund allocations. Highlighted findings include the following: (1) the 27 colleges served an average of 102,885 FTE students each quarter in 1990-91; (2) the student population was 19.6% minority, compared to 13.3% for the state population; (3) nearly one-third of all students were enrolled in contract- or student-funded courses; (4) there were 7,489 state-supported, FTE exempt and classified staff in the colleges in 1990-91; and (5) on September 1, 1991, the five Washington technical colleges merged with the community colleges. Detailed data tables are included. (PAA)
