Los Angeles Community College District Annual Report, 1993.
Los Angeles Community Coll. District, CA.
This 1993 annual report provides information on student demographics, college programs, and educational finances in the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD), which, with more than 117,000 students, is the largest community college district in the nation. The report begins with a statement from Donald Phelps, the outgoing chancellor of the district, who offers an overview of district achievements in shared governance, racial integration of senior administrations, and district finances during the 5.4 years of his tenure in office. Next, a statement by Board President David Lopez-Lee considers the impact of declining funds on the LACCD. The next section provides a district overview highlighting the following: (1) 34% of the LACCD's population is Hispanic, 30% White, 18% African-American, 16% Asian, and 2% other ethnicities; (2) to make up for the shortfall in state subsidies, LACCD colleges offer special programs in partnership with businesses and corporations, including East Los Angeles College's real estate appraising program sponsored by TRW and Harbor College's program sponsored by Hyundai Motor America to train auto mechanics; (3) each of the district's nine colleges has become a center for retraining laid-off workers; (4) the LACCD has developed an innovative international education program that has served over 2,600 international students and sent 200 students to study abroad; and (5) the LACCD's budget for the 1992-93 school year totaled $378,124,507. Graphs showing student sex, age, ethnic background, educational goal, time of attendance, and hour load; and district revenues and appropriations are included. The remainder of the annual report offers brief vignettes about individual students and faculty members from each of the district campuses. (MAB)
