This report provides an account and evaluation of activities conducted under the Illinois Community College Disadvantaged Student Grant Programs (DSGP), which were instituted in 1973 and which are currently serving 116,612 students on 51 campuses. Part I offers responses from students and instructors to the programs and provides examples of noteworthy accomplishments and anecdotal accounts to illustrate ways in which the DSGP have served persons of all ages, with varying goals, and with different educational levels and personal needs.

Part II offers data tables and analyses covering: (1) districtwide data on DSGP awards based on credit hours offered in Adult Basic Education (ABE), General Educational Development (GED), and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs and on number of participants; (2) percent of colleges involved in various activities (e.g., needs assessment); offering specific programs (e.g., counseling and tutoring); and serving specific groups (e.g., immigrants, older adults, and handicapped); (3) analysis of program participation by college; (4) students served by age, sex, and racial and ethnic origin; (5) reasons for students' separation from DSGP; and (6) the impact of DSGP on students in areas such as employment and educational attainment.
