This color coded fact book on Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC) provides data tables, charts, and graphs on campus size, class size, college revenue, faculty and staff characteristics, full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollments, student background and characteristics, districtwide enrollments, campus enrollments, the district population, MATC and state vocational enrollments, and results of a 1988 survey of MATC students. Highlighted findings include the following; (1) throughout the 1980s MATC enrollments were directly proportional to the local unemployment rate; (2) from academic year 1980-81 to 1989-90, total minority enrollment increased by 7.6%, with Hispanics more than doubling their enrollment, Asians increasing by 70.3%, Black enrollment increasing by 20.9%, and American Indian enrollment decreasing by 2.9%; (3) after 1981-82, there was a gradual increase in the median age of MATC students; (4) day student first-semester headcounts increased over the last 13 years, while evening first-semester enrollments decreased at almost all campuses; (5) associate degree FTE increased significantly over the past 13 years, representing 53% of the total in 1989; (6) college parallel and vocational adult enrollment increased greatly since 1976-77, while vocational and community service enrollment declined significantly over the same period; (7) all instructional divisions except Agribusiness and Television peaked in FTE enrollment in 1983-84; (8) service occupations were the only programs to show a significant increase (16.2%) from 1981-82 to 1988-89; and (9) in 1988 and 1989, the majority of MATC's employees were females.
