Stability and Change: A Study of Selected Students Entering Central YMCA Community College, 1969-72. Volume 1: Analysis.
This study focuses on a ten percent random sample of Central YMCA Community College (CYCC) students who started at CYCC between fall 1969 and spring 1972, stayed for at least two semesters, and attempted at least 15 credit or instructional hours of work. Questionnaires were sent to 611 former students; 182 (29.8 percent) of whom returned them. Data for this entire target group was obtained from CYCC records. The response group differed from the target group in that it was more degree oriented, had fewer foreign students and American non-Black minorities, had more students who were enrolled longer at CYCC, and had more students who did not require as much remedial work. Extensive demographic profiles of the target group and the response group are given. Student profiles include academic history, work patterns, evaluation of CYCC programs, facilities, and staff, and employment information. Cross-tabulations were run on numerous variables to establish interrelationships and to note areas where results should be qualified. As a means of supplementing the statistical analyses, anecdotal interviews were conducted with 12 persons from the target population. Case studies of the 12 students compiled from the information supplied in the interviews are provided. (AH)
