State Plan for Community Colleges in Maryland, Fiscal Years 1980-1985.
Maryland State Board for Community Colleges, Annapolis.
After an executive summary of the mission, goals, progress, problems, and needs of the Maryland community colleges, this statewide master plan describes the administrative structure and legal mandates and controls of the colleges, and outlines the college's mission and goals. Another section considers conditions, trends, and projections in the following subsections: (1) strengths of the system--student goal achievement, faculty competence, local support, geographic access, quality facilities, and diverse and responsive programs; (2) system problems--decline of liberal arts, financial squeeze, increased reporting and regulation, and maintaining low student costs; (3) enrollment trends and projections; (4) current and projected, regional and statewide programs of instruction; (5) financing current operations--current funding formula, projected net operating costs, and funding sources; and (6) physical facilities--present and projected facilities and campus requirements, alternatives, capital funding formula, state participation in capital construction, and priorities. Subsequent sections deal with objectives; major policy directions and actions; strengths and weaknesses of the system in policy implementation illustrated by profiles of each college; status of proposals submitted; and evaluation and progress. Appendices include selected statistical data. (MB)
