A Long Range Planning Study for the El Paso Community College, El Paso, Texas.
Colvert, C. C.
This planning study was undertaken in order to determine the long-range financial needs of El Paso Community College (Texas) and present them to the Board of Trustees. The document outlines a budget of income and expenditures, projects student enrollment by academic and vocational-technical program areas, and projects total educational costs per full-time equivalent student by program area. Some of the factors considered in making these projections are the rapidly expanding economy and population of the El Paso area, the number of high school graduates in the county, the national trend toward increased enrollment in vocational-technical fields, and anticipated expansion of college facilities to meet vocational program demands. Costs and administrative organization are discussed for a proposed multicampus area. The author concludes that necessary expansion of the college can be achieved with a minimum of expense to the taxpayer, in light of anticipated income from state aid and tuition. Tax rates required for the operation of the college are calculated for each college year from 1975-76 through 1984-85. Final recommendations include a request to the Board of Trustees for acquisition of new building space and for an election in El Paso County to secure additional bond tax. Extensive tables, maps, and sample calculations illustrate each area of the study. (JS)
