The Division of Continuing Education at New York City Community College witnessed its third year of budgetary reduction and staff losses in 1977-78. The college's grant income declined by $300,000 from 1976-77 and enrollment in tuition courses fell. Factors influencing the drop in tuition course enrollment included a loss of central staff initiative in tuition course development and raising of fees to meet the mandate that tuition cover not only instructional costs but other costs previously underwritten by the college. Overall enrollment, however, rose by about 650 from the previous year. The worse blows to the continuing education division were the loss of refunding for the Voorhees vocational training program for ex-offenders and the ethnic heritage studies program for older adults. Other programs that are described with regard to enrollments, evaluation, problems and achievements, and future plans are the vocational programs for deaf adults, and technical programs in food service training, day care cooks' training, biomedical equipment technology, hearing aid technology, and welding. Discussions of credit for continuing education, the state civil service employee benefits training program, and the sanitation management certificate program are also included. A statistical summary of the tuition and grant programs is also provided. (MB)
