Report for Public Community Colleges, 1971-1972.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Community Junior Colleges.
Florida statutes provide that the community colleges shall serve the post-high school educational needs of local communities by providing education in three major areas: (1) adult continuing education, including community services; (2) occupational education; and (3) general and academic education parallel to that of first and second years of the State University System. This report is intended to provide information with which to answer those questions most frequently asked by members of the legislature, state agencies, external agencies, citizens, administrators, faculty members, and students. Introductory materials describe the history, goals and philosophy, and organization of the Florida public community college system. In addition, material on financial support, articulation, and legislative regulations on the establishment of occupational, vocational, and general adult education programs is presented. The latter half of this report is comprised of 16 tables of data on enrollment, personnel, academic programs, physical facilities, and finances. Because of its unusual balance of local control with state coordination and support, the Florida community college master plan has been a national model for long-range planning and the orderly development of a statewide system of community colleges.
