A Comparative Analysis of Student Profiles and Institutional Goal Priorities at Washtenaw Community College.
Davis, Paul W.
This study was undertaken as part of an effort to obtain data on student profiles and to make some conclusions concerning institutional goal priorities. Results reveal the WCC student to be typical of the student often referred to in the literature. There are more part-time students than full-time, and more of the part-time drop out. Among those students preparing for job entry upon completion of a certificate or degree, the majority were part time. Several significant differences were found between part-time and full-time students. More part-time students were married and planned to terminate their college careers upon completion of their specific program. The majority of WCC students are in vocational career programs. The percentage of female students is increasing. The college counseling services received criticism. Most of the full-time respondents had a counseling interview before registering, but most of the part-time students had not had such an interview before registering. (Author/KM)
