Community College Fiscal Policies: Presidents' Views.
Lauroesch, William; And Others
This study explores perceptions of 2-year college presidents regarding both strengths and weaknesses of fiscal policies. Questionnaires sent to a random sample of 350 presidents contained five questions pertaining to most and least effective aspects of their state's fiscal policies and desired changes in state, federal, and community funding policies. Results of the survey indicated that: (1) fiscal and financial structures under which the community colleges are operating lack necessary flexibility; and (2) the significance of continuing education, community services, and remedial education is denied by fiscal policy. It was concluded that if the community college hopes to fulfill its philosophy of extending the opportunities for higher education to a larger segment of the population, then the appropriate financial resources will have to be made available to facilitate this growth.
