Washington Community Colleges Fall Quarter Report, 1981.
Story, Sherie; And Others
Data tables summarize various aspects of enrollment and services at the Washington community colleges, providing fall quarter data for 1977 through 1981. After introductory material highlighting the significant changes in the community colleges' profile, the report provides headcount and full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment data by funding source and data on state-supported FTE faculty by employment status; state-supported FTE students by academic and occupational course intent and by time and location; and rates of change in state-supported FTE students and faculty and course sections. The report then goes on to provide information about the characteristics of students enrolled in state-supported or contracted classes. Data are broken down by full-/part-time status, student intent, age, source (i.e., high school, transfer, etc.), ethnic groups, and sex. Next, data from individual colleges and districts for fall 1980 and fall 1981 are presented in terms of FTE; time and location; faculty by employment status; academic/occupational course section offerings; headcount enrollment by institutional intent and funding source; and academic/occupational student headcount by student intent and ethnic group. Highlights reported from the fall 1980 and fall 1981 comparisons include a 30% reduction in part-time faculty and a 4% reduction in full-time faculty; a drop of 29.7% in evening and off-campus enrollments; and a decrease in part-time students.
