Planning for Lifelong Learning; A Report on the Office of Community Education and Services.
Wiseman, T. Jan
The Office of Community Education and Services (CES) was formed in March, 1974 through the merger of the former Office of Community Relations and the Evening College Office at Kishwaukee College. This report describes: (1) the philosophy and goals of CES, (2) a detailed description of existing and planned CES course offerings and public service programs, (3) CES enrollment and financial statistics, (4) CES faculty recruitment, training, supervision, and evaluation, and (5) CES plans for future research. Within the last year, CES enrollments have increased by 531%, largely because of the opening of four community centers plus an additional off-campus location. Most CES courses are eligible for full state apportionment. Excepting administrative costs, these state funds along with student tuition and fees have enabled CES to realize substantial profits (97% in spring 1975, 114% in fall 1975). This compares with a 2.1% loss in other areas of the college. Even with administrative costs added in, a $13,000 profit was realized over the two semesters. CES expenses are low due to minimal supply and capital outlay costs and the practice of hiring only part-time instructors. (DC)
