Designed to convey timely, accurate, and comparative information about Florida's 28 community colleges, this fact book provides descriptive and statistical data on enrollment trends, college personnel, educational finances, and governance from 1991-92 through 1995-96. The report opens with a brief historical overview of the state system from its beginnings in 1933 to the present, including a list of the 28 colleges and their years of establishment and a description of Florida's community college funding policy. Next, data tables are presented on the state's community college students, including: (1) fall headcount enrollment by full-/part-time status, ethnicity, and gender; (2) annual headcount enrollment by college and for disabled students; (3) full-time equivalent (FTE) enrollment by program area, college, and discipline; (4) program enrollment headcount by program area, vocational program area, award type, and college by ethnicity and special populations; and (5) degrees and certificates awarded by type, college, and ethnicity and gender. Data on system employees is then provided, including employees by occupational activity, fall 1996 full- and part-time status, and fall 1996 average salaries. Finally, data are presented on system finances, including revenues and expenditures for 1995-96, fall 1996 student fees, annual cost analysis expenditures and percentages by college and function, a full cost summary per FTE for 1995-96, and a facilities inventory and value estimate for 1996-97.
