A 20-Year History of JCCC, 1970-1990.
Johnson County Community Coll., Overland Park, KS.
In a special election in 1967, Johnson County (Kansas) voters approved by a three-to-one margin the establishment of a community college district, and in June 1969, voters approved $12.9 million in bonds to purchase a 220-acre site and to construct five buildings for a permanent campus. In August 1969, classes began in leased facilities, and in August 1972, classes and all operations moved to the permanent campus where close to 100 full-time faculty began teaching more than 3,600 students. In September 1973, the college was fully accredited by the Kansas State Department of Education. This history of JCCC provides information on the construction dates of specific facilities, reviews current programs available, profiles the student body, reviews enrollment trends from 1970 to 1990, provides revenue data, reviews graduation rates, and presents data on the number and gender of full-time instructors from 1970 to 1990. The bulk of the report consists of enrollment data tables examining student credit-hour enrollment; full-time equivalency enrollment; non-credit registrations; headcount enrollment and credit-hour enrollment by sex, age, residence, class level, race, and educational objective; and enrollment by full-time/part-time status. Among the data presented are the following: (1) minorities comprised 6.4% of the 1990 student body; (2) headcount enrollment has increased by 488.6% since 1970, with total fall 1990 enrollment at 13,744; (3) since 1976, female students have outnumbered male students; (4) in-state tuition has increased from $10 per credit in 1970 to $22 in 1990; and (5) the percentage of full-time female instructors has increased from 35.3% in 1970 to 42.2% in 1990.
