Annual Report, FY 1978.
Maryland State Board for Community Colleges, Annapolis.
This annual report from the Maryland State Board for Community Colleges outlines information on enrollment, instructional programs, finance, capital construction, the state master plan, legislation, and the Vocational Education Acts Grant for fiscal year 1978. The report reveals that the 1977 opening fall credit enrollment for Maryland community colleges was 84,887, an increase of 6.2% over the previous year; and that part-time students represented 66% and women 56% of the students. A section on the instructional programs lists the ten new programs endorsed during the year, describes program evaluation efforts on state and local levels, and considers continuing education and community and public service activities. The finance section reports that the total net operating expenditures for the 17 community colleges during 1978 were $107,027,716. The average cost per full-time equivalent student was $1,903. Data are also provided regarding the major sources of college revenue and the expenditures by function; the state provides at least 50% of capital funds required for construction on a matching basis for space. Also presented in the report are: specific construction projects and the allocations approved; a summary of the purpose and goals of the statewide master plan for the colleges; legislative bills related to college audits, liability of college officials, senior citizen tuition waivers, and staff collective bargaining; and study projects funded under a Vocational Education Acts grant.
