Milwaukee Area Technical Coll., WI. Dept. of Research, Planning, and Development.
In April 1986, a survey was conducted at Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) to provide students with the opportunity to evaluate the college's functions, services, and facilities, and to gather data to construct a profile of MATC students. Questionnaires were administered in class to 7,869 MATC students including 3,324 day students, 4,123 evening students, and 422 weekend college students. Study findings included the following: (1) 56% of the day students, 53% of the evening students, and 60% of the weekend college students were women; (2) the median age had increased in recent years to 25.1 years for day students, 30.5 for evening students, and 32.6 for weekend college students; (3) 4.2% of the day students spoke an Asian language at home; (4) most students were not seeking a degree or diploma as their primary reason for attendance when they initially enrolled; (5) evaluations given by evening and weekend college students were more favorable than those given by day students; and (6) child care, health services, housing services, and recreation facilities were areas of concern for students not attending the main campus. Tables showing survey responses by campus and the two survey instruments are included in the study report. (EJV)
