This five-part report provides a summary of the findings and recommendations resulting from a study conducted to determine the most suitable sites for three Metropolitan Junior College (MJC) campuses and to formulate long-range plans for the development of a comprehensive institution. After presenting introductory material, Part I notes problems in the initial site selection for MJC campuses and offers conclusions regarding population growth, educational needs of the workforce, educational level of the population, recommended program offerings, and projected enrollment. Next, a series of recommendations are enumerated relating to site selection and development, financing, organization for development, and programs. Part II provides an economic and demographic profile of the Kansas City metropolitan area, examining economic growth potential, manpower requirements to 1975, population growth dynamics, and population projections. Enrollment demands for MJC are projected in terms of national trends and the educational needs and providers in the MJC service area in Part III. Part IV outlines an educational program for MJC, emphasizing basic principles for its success and improvements required in college-parallel and occupational education programs and in personnel services. Finally, Part V addresses considerations affecting location, location alternatives, site selection and evaluation, facility needs, development costs, financial resources, and operating requirements.
