A Suggested Plan for Developing Connecticut's Regional Community College System. Report to the State Board of Trustees for Regional Community Colleges.
Young, Raymond J.; And Others
The nature of the economy in Connecticut--its changing occupational structure and trends of population growth--and the changing pattern of higher education enrollments, particularly increasing enrollments in technical colleges and in relatively new regional community colleges, indicate the need for increased post-high school educational opportunities. Based on an analysis of employment and enrollment trends and community college objectives, this report presents guidelines for the future development of the regional community college system. Six models for providing college facilities and criteria for establishing new community colleges are detailed. Recommendations for new, expanded, or merged facilities are based on application of the criteria to each community college district. On the basis of first-hand acquaintance of the study team with topography, existing and planned road systems, and other accessibility factors, two areas of location for permanent community college facilities are recommended, and two proposed sites for which legislation has already been enacted are discouraged. An amalgamation of technical colleges with regional community colleges is recommended. Statistical studies of the present community college network, three alternative enrollment projection estimates, and maps are included. (Author/NHM)
