Lauter, Victor
Despite drastic budget cuts precipitated by the New York City fiscal crisis, and a 40 percent cut in program staff, the Division of Continuing Education (DCE) of New York City Community College in 1974-75 enrolled 9,707 adult students in 377 noncredit courses and programs, representing an increase of 1,349 students and 101 courses beyond the 1973-74 totals. 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. Almost the entire enrollment increase in 1974-75 reflects growth achieved in the area of grants and contracts. In all, 7,791 students enrolled in 283 courses and programs supported by grants and contracts totalling $681,428. These students were primarily minorities, inmates of a correctional institution, the elderly, and adults with educational deficiencies. The 1,916 adults attending 94 tuition courses were primarily working adults seeking occupational advancement. Specific programs and community service projects are described, and statistical data are appended. (NHM)
