Community College Forensics Programs in Illinois.
Corley, Diana
Information on participation, funding, and administration of forensics programs at state-supported community colleges in Illinois was sought through surveying all 37 state-supported community colleges. Responses were received from 20 (54%) of the schools surveyed. Results of the study indicated: (1) about one-third of the state-supported community colleges in Illinois reported having an active forensics program; (2) intercollegiate competition in individual events was more frequent than debate competition both in terms of student participation and number of tournaments attended annually; (3) competition occurs against both two and four-year schools, mainly in the midwest; (4) some workshops are scheduled as part of the forensics experience; (5) average forensics budgets were $4,499 annually; (6) compensation for coaches included both released time and monetary compensation; and (7) most of the schools surveyed anticipated more growth in their forensics programs in the future.
