La creation du CEGEP Marie-Victorin. Avis a la ministre de l'enseignement superieur et de la Science (The Creation of CEGEP Marie-Victorin. Advisory to the Minister of Higher Education and Science).
Conseil des Colleges, Quebec (Quebec).
A rationale is provided by the Council of Colleges for transforming Marie-Victorin College from a private institution into a public college of general and professional education (CEGEP). The council's analysis covers four areas: (1) access to postsecondary education, examined in light of demographic trends, geographic accessibility, adult education, and gender equity; (2) Marie-Victorin College, including a history of college since its formation in 1965 by six religious communities, an overview of the financial difficulties of the college, and data on enrollments and financial problems of other private colleges in Quebec; (3) instructional programs to be offered at CEGEP Marie-Victorin, including information on technical programs already available, enrollment projections, and new programs planned; and (4) anticipated costs. Observations about the availability of and demand for particular social technology programs, the first implementation of a fashion program in a public CEGEP, and the need for the college and ministry of education to develop a position on Marie-Victorin College's existing dietitian and computer science programs are also included. The report concludes with a series of recommendations underscoring the need for additional demographic and needs assessment studies, the need to improve the college-going rates of high school students, the need to increase enrollments in technical programs and coordinate the curricula of Montreal's CEGEP's, and the difficulty of implementing seven new programs in one year.
