Statewide Master Plan for Community Colleges in Maryland, 1975-1985.
Maryland State Board for Community Colleges, Annapolis.
This document is an update of the first Statewide Plan published in 1973, and it incorporates the format required by the Executive Planning Process. The Plan focuses on the long- and short-range goals and objectives of the State Board for Community Colleges and the 16 institutions which comprise Maryland's community college system. Chapter I presents the Executive Summary of the Master Plan. An overview of the state system is given in Chapter II as a means of introducing the Master Plan that follows. Community college system-wide conditions, trends and projections for enrollment, programs of instruction, financing of current operations, and physical facilities are detailed in Chapter III. Chapter IV outlines the system-wide goals, objectives, and implementation strategies. The five statewide goals are: (1) equal access to community college for all Maryland citizens; (2) expand programs and services; (3) provide geographic access to colleges; (4) continue the policy of low tuition; and (5) increase the overall cost effectiveness without impairing the quality of service. Chapter V notes the means for evaluating the degree to which the stated goals are being met. Major policy directions and actions are reviewed in Chapter VI, and individual implementation profiles of the 16 colleges are presented in Chapter VII. Charts, graphs, tables, and a map supplement the text. (Author/AH)
