Arizona Community Colleges: Report of the Task Force on Community College Enrollment Growth Planning.
Arizona State Board of Directors for Community Colleges, Phoenix.
The Task Force on Enrollment Growth Planning (TFEGP), authorized in 1992 by the State Board of Directors for Community Colleges (SBDCC) of Arizona, includes representatives from each community college as well as staff from SBDCC office. The Task Force was created to prepare enrollment growth estimates for community colleges through the year 2010; to develop alternative strategies to accommodate the anticipated enrollment growth; and to provide recommendations. Using the Arizona Enrollment Demand Model, the Task Force estimated that community college enrollment demand would increase by approximately 95,000 students (62%) between 1990 and 2010, which would be equivalent to the services provided by an additional 11 to 14 average-sized Arizona community colleges. To deal with the projected growth in enrollment demand, the Task Force proposed a variety of strategies described under the following headings: Strategic Planning for Facilities, Equipment, and Staffing; Collaborative Efforts among Institutions; Confronting the Challenge of Growth; and Financial Support. This report reviews the enrollment growth estimates and the methodologies used to arrive at these estimates, as well as describing the strategies to accommodate the anticipated growth. The report also details specific recommendations to each of the following bodies: the Arizona Board of Regents; the Governor and State Legislature; the SBDCC; and the District Governing Boards and colleges. An appendix provides a report of the Task Force's Statistics subgroup, describing enrollment growth models reviewing district-prepared enrollment projections, and detailing enrollment projections by program type, and student age, gender, ethnicity. Data tables, graphs, and pie-charts are included. (PAA)
