Martens, Freda R. H.
One of a series of discussion papers on the history, governance, operation, and development of the State University of New York (SUNY) community college system, this paper examines trends in the characteristics of students, faculty, and programs and the nature of academic planning and evaluation. The first section of the paper highlights the diversity of students at SUNY's community colleges and their varied educational needs. Information is offered regarding student characteristics, financial aid, headcount enrollments, residency, retention, and enrollment and graduation patterns between 1962 and 1982. Next, a section devoted to faculty and staff in the community colleges provides information related to teacher-student ratios, teacher salaries, faculty characteristics, promotion and tenure, personnel policies, and collective bargaining. The next section focuses on the academic programs of the community colleges, discussing curriculum options, remedial/developmental programs, evening and weekend courses, and student majors. Finally, a section devoted to academic planning and the effectiveness of the community college programs discusses program development, accreditation, associate degrees offered, and methods of measuring program outcomes.
