Five Years of Career Program Growth: 1969-1973 [Prince George's Community College, Maryland]. Report No. 75.
Larkin, Paul G.
During the past five years the college's career programs have been growing steadily. Each year this growth has been noted mainly by comparison with the previous year. The present report shows how career programs have been growing in the longer term. A five-year time frame has been selected for comparison. The number of students enrolling in career programs increased from 747 in fall 1969 to 2,557 in fall 1973. This represented a 242 percent gain, in contrast with a 79 percent growth rate for the entire student body. Moreover, transfer program enrollments grew by only 12 percent during this period. Career programs thus had 20 times the growth rate of transfer programs. Appended tables show comparative enrollment numbers for career, transfer, and special curriculum areas, FTE enrollments and student credit hours, by curriculum type. (Author/MJK)
