Fact Sheets: A Useful Way to Disseminate Community College Institutional Research.
Schilling, Judith S.
For the past several years, a fact sheet format has been used at Butler County Community College (BCCC) to disseminate research findings across the campus. Prepared as early as possible after the start of each semester, the fact sheets are distributed to every full- and part-time college employee, and to the board of trustees and foundation directors. Fact sheets are also given to prospective employees during the interview process and are used to help provide consultants with a quick orientation to various aspects of the college. The fact sheets are easily updated to reflect different emphases in data collection from year to year. This report presents four examples of BCCC's Fact Sheets, focusing on: (1) Credit Student Profile for Fall Semester, 1986, which contains enrollment data on full-time, part-time, and credit students; freshmen and sophomores; new and returning students; certificate and degree programs; day and night students; and male and female students; (2) Spring Semester, 1987, Credit Student Profile, which contains the same information along with data on students by age and high school; and class scheduling; (3) Summer Session, 1986, Credit Student Profile, which contains data on student enrollment by workload, status, gender and residency; courses by schedule, credit hours, status of instructors and number of students; student enrollment headcounts for summer sessions, 1982-1986; credits generated by departments for summer sessions, 1982-1986; credit full-time equivalents generated for summer, 1982-1986; and (4) Employees, which contains data on total college employees by job classification; faculty by number, gender, and status as compared with 1984; full-time and part-time faculty by highest degree held; full-time faculty by rank and tenure status; administrators by rank and highest degree held; and secretarial, paraprofessional, and skilled crafts/maintenance personnel by status and gender.
