Two-Year Report [of the] Division of Continuing Education and Extension Services, 1972-1974.
Despite the constraints of budget and space, the Division of Continuing Education (DCE) of New York City Community College in 1973-74 enrolled a total of 8,358 students in 276 courses. Comparison of this report with two previous reports evidences continued growth in diversity and number of programs. Apparent, too, is the evolution of many significant programs from relatively small beginnings. In general, DCE offerings are of two types: those developed for particular groups through grants and contracts, and those offered to the public on a tuition basis. Through collaborative efforts with other community institutions, DCE identifies educational needs, selects courses, recruits students, and evaluates outcomes. Although DCE offers only non-credit courses and programs, it can stimulate the development of credit and degree programs. In the past two years, DCE has attempted to involve the departments of the College in early stages of curriculum planning. This has created the opportunity for departmental faculty to make larger contributions to program design. DCE has also strengthened its relationship with students, involving them not only in the evaluation of teaching and course content, but in planning for new programs. Specific programs and community service projects are described, and statistical data are appended. (Author/NHM)
