National Community College Urban Arts Survey Based on the Cuyahoga Community College Metropolitan Campus Urban Arts Survey.
Buckner, Reginald T.
In the course of developing a master plan for the arts at its Metropolitan Campus, Cuyahoga Community College conducted a nation-wide survey of 40 urban community colleges to assess the status of arts instruction and curricula. A 25-item questionnaire solicited information on: (1) the college environment (urban or suburban); (2) total enrollment; (3) degree and certificate programs offered in the arts; (4) the art subjects offered; (5) the stability of the arts curricula over the past seven years; (6) the number, academic background, and effectiveness of arts faculty; (7) the percentage of arts students in transfer and vocational programs; (8) the preparation of students for arts courses; (9) whether the colleges had master plans for the arts; (10) the use of performance objectives in arts courses; (11) the percentage of arts students transferring to four-year institutions and the proportion of credits accepted for transfer at state universities; (12) the availability of developmental arts programs for non-traditional students; (13) the participation of arts faculty at professional conferences; (14) faculty complaints about students; and (15) opinions concerning the most important problems facing the arts at community colleges. The study report presents findings based on responses from 30 campuses on an item-by-item basis and discusses the implications of these findings for Cuyahoga. The questionnaire is appended. (JP)
