Statewide Master Plan for Community Colleges in Maryland, Fiscal Years 1977-1986.
Maryland State Board for Community Colleges, Annapolis.
This document is an update of the 1975-85 Master Plan, focusing on the long and short-range goals and objectives of the State Board for Community Colleges and the 17 institutions which comprise Maryland's community college system. First, the legal and administrative structures of the system are described, and six goals are identified, including: (1) development and better coordination of the system; (2) provision of equal access to community colleges for all Maryland citizens; (3) provision of high quality comprehensive transfer and continuing education programs and services; (4) offering a comprehensive selection of career programs, courses, and student support services; (5) analysis of current and potential services to local communities; (6) increasing the efficiency of operations without impairing the quality of services. The plan goes on to project systemwide enrollment figures for the next decade which reflect a continuation of the open admissions policy. In turn, the enrollment projections provide a basis for community college program, budget, and facilities requirements over the 1977-86 decade. Finally, major policy directions and actions are reviewed, individual implementation profiles for the 17 colleges are presented, and evaluation plans are suggested. Charts, graphs, and tables supplement the text. (NHM)
