Bower, Mitch; Hale, Earl
Designed to answer the most frequently asked questions about Washington community and technical colleges (WCTC's), this report provides information about students, courses, faculty, staff, expenditures, and facilities for the 1992-93 academic year and historical data from 1988-89 through 1992-93, where available. While the state's community and technical colleges were merged into a single system in fall 1991, data for technical colleges' personnel and student characteristics were not available for this report. Following a brief history of the WCTC system, the five sections of this report examine courses offered; enrollments and student demographics, including full-time equivalents (FTE) by funding source and by college; community college personnel; facilities; and expenditures. Highlights of the report include the following: (1) during 1992-93, Washington community colleges served 362,511 unduplicated headcount students; (2) 19% of the community college student population were minorities, compared to a state minority population of 14%; (3) in 1992-93, WCTC expenditures totaled $521 million from all revenue sources, including $426 million in state funds; (4) WCTC capital appropriations for 1991-93 were $109 million; (5) the 32 campuses in the system occupy a total of 2,912 acres of land; (6) the WCTC enrolled the equivalent of 126,016 full-time equivalent (FTE) students each quarter in 1992-93, of whom 107,115 were in state-funded courses; and (7) in 1992-93, the WCTC employed 7,781 state-supported, FTE faculty, administrative, and exempt, classified, and other professional staff, representing a 3% increase over the previous year.
