State Plan for Community Colleges in the State of Nevada.
Nevada Univ., Reno. Community Coll. Div.
This document is a 1971 master plan for the development of Nevada community colleges. The mission of the community college is seen as five-fold: occupational, university parallel, developmental, community service, and counseling and guidance. Based on projected manpower needs, the establishment of two new community colleges in Clark County and Western Nevada is recommended. These two new colleges will join Elko Community College as the foundation of the Nevada community college system. Enrollment projections for each of these three institutions are made for the 10-year period ending in 1980. Projections are based on an assessment of high school graduate interest in specific programs, and the expected effects of Nevada's public school adult education programs, of existing post-secondary occupational programs at the state universities, and of population growth. In addition, policy recommendations are made concerning admission standards, college size, grading, articulation, budget, facility improvement, and expansion. Specific recommendations include: the establishment of an open door policy; a grading policy designed to pass students, rather than to fail them; a goal of 60 percent of total student enrollment in occupational programs; a maximum size of 5,000 full-time equated students for any community college in the state.
