Campus, Campus Center, and Outreach Profile: Analysis of Students Taking Courses at Various Locations, Fall Term 1991.
Traditional profiles of student enrollment at Miami-Dade Community College (M-DCC) use "home campus" to designate the campus at which a given student's records are kept. However, many students take courses at campus centers or at outreach locations different from this "home campus" designation. A study was conducted to profile students on campuses, at campus centers, and at outreach centers in comparison with the "home campus" profile. Highlights of the study included the following: (1) all campuses, except Homestead, had more total students across sites than their home campus total; (2) North Campus outreach students were 65% Black non-Hispanic, compared to 40% Black non-Hispanic on the North Campus; (3) Hispanic students comprised 90% of Hialeah Center enrollments, 40% of North Campus enrollments, 95% of InterAmerican enrollments, and 60% of Wolfson Campus enrollments; (4) at both the Hialeah and InterAmerican Centers, students were more likely to be female, resident aliens, and part-time than on the central campuses; (5) Medical Campus outreach centers had the highest proportion of females (80%) of any location examined; and (6) at Homestead Air Force Base, students were 60% White non-Hispanic, and were more likely to be male than on the Homestead Campus. Detailed data tables of students taking courses at various North, Wolfson, South, Medical, and Homestead Campus locations are provided, along with demographic comparisons of students taking courses on the main campuses, at the campus outreach centers, and at the three major campus centers.
