Conseil des Colleges, Quebec (Quebec).
Designed to open debate about the future of Quebec's community college system, Colleges of General and Professional Education (CEGEP), this report offers projections about the characteristics of Quebec society in the year 2000, explores the mission of the community college system, and considers issues related to the administration of the CEGEP. Part 1 describes Quebec in the year 2000, providing facts, data, and hypotheses related to the anticipated demographic and economic situation, social and cultural characteristics, and scientific and technological developments. In part 2, the mission of the community colleges and ways of achieving that mission are discussed. The educational mission is considered in terms of current educational and training needs, college clientele, traditional college-age and adult enrollments, student characteristics, accessibility, college instruction, diverse types of programs, transfer and vocational education, and college outcomes. This section also briefly discusses two other college missions: community service and research. Part 3 focuses on management issues, including: (1) the legal foundations of the governance system; (2) the distribution of the colleges throughout the province; (3) program administration; (4) college administrative structures; (5) human resource management; (6) financial resource management; and (7) private colleges. Throughout the report, each major section concludes with a series of questions posed by the CEGEP's Council of Colleges for further discussion. (AC)
