Report on the California Postsecondary Education Commission.
The June 26, 1989 meeting of the California Postsecondary Education Commission considered a number of policy issues with direct implications for the state's community colleges. The major actions and discussions of the Commission's meeting focused on: (1) updated statistics on community college transfers to the University of California and the California State University systems, which showed that in both systems the numbers of transfer students enrolled in fall 1988 increased over the previous year, with Hispanic students making the greatest gains of any ethnic group; (2) state policy guidelines for adjusting nonresident tuition at California's public colleges and universities; (3) an update on six budget priorities (i.e., expanding funding for adult programs in English as a Second Language, supporting enrollment growth, implementing legislatively mandated community college reforms, expanding student financial assistance, maintaining low student fees, and funding capital outlay); (4) the expansion of the Commission's role in program projection, approval, and review activities; and (5) the promotion of doctoral programs for community college faculty and administrators. This report offers brief summaries of the Commission's discussions of each of these areas and other relevant topics and highlights implications for the Office of the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges and the colleges themselves.
