This six-part factbook describes the history, programs, and financial status of New Mexico's two-year colleges. Part I discusses the legal basis for the colleges and describes the coordination of the five types of two-year institutions operating under state law: constitutional colleges, branch community colleges, district junior colleges, technical and vocational institutions, and area vocational schools. Part II presents one-page descriptions of each of the 15 individual institutions, outlining the school's establishment, describing its service area, programs, and students, and stating its goals. Part III examines enrollment trends in academic and vocational programs since 1975-76, and considers 1979-80 tuition and fees for each institution. Part IV discusses the types of vocational, academic, and General Educational Development programs offered at the schools and presents data showing course enrollments and completions in 1979-80. In the case of vocational programs, information is also provided on the number of students who have been employed or have continued their education since program enrollment. Part V presents financial information, including progress to date on a funding formula for two-year institutions and the history and status of revenues and expenditures. The final section details facilities construction costs at each of the institutions. (JP)
