Hawkins, O. Rebecca, Ed.
This annual update of the Prince George's Community College (PGCC) Master Plan represents an effort by the college to provide a framework for meeting the postsecondary educational needs of Prince George's County. Following a brief introduction highlighting PGCC's goal to increase its role in the county's economic development, PGCC's planning process is explained. The next section looks at PGCC's mission; its commitment to academic excellence, open admission, educational access, affordability, program diversity, and county development; and its instructional and support programs. Next, an overview is provided of PGCC's current enrollment situation, including information on the college's market share, enrollment trends, student demographics, goals, attendance patterns, and program choices. The next section considers some of the factors external to the college that will affect its future, including the decline in high school graduates, the trend toward an older county population, county economic development activities, increasing competition among higher education institutions, and the availability of financial aid. Finally, the report presents the following goals and priorities of PGCC: (1) increase the college's share of the high school market and adult continuing education, credit and noncredit market over the period fall 1988 through fall 1990; (2) increase the retention rate of students; (3) improve transportation to PGCC's Largo Campus; (4) increase credit and noncredit enrollments through entrepreneurial efforts; (5) increase funding from private and public sectors; (6) seek alternative funding for new or upgraded facilities; (7) improve marketing efforts; and (8) enhance affirmative action.
