This paper provides background information on the City College of San Francisco (CCSF), describes the college's changing context, and presents current concerns. Established in 1935, CCSF has long been the largest provider of postsecondary education in San Francisco. The college anticipates even larger enrollments, more diversified students goals, increasing workforce demands, and limited funding for the future. More than 90,000 students attend CCSF's nine campus and more than 100 instructional sites throughout San Francisco. Women outnumber men, and students are nearly equally divided in credit and non-credit programs. Background information includes: (1) student population; (2) services and programs; and (3) resources. The next section presents the changes in the environment that are expected to affect CCSF during the next decade. These include demographic, educational, workforce and job market, economic, funding, policy, and technological trends. Also covered are issues of concern for the future, including student success, access, programs, technology, facilities, funding, and other challenges. CCSF seeks to create a dialogue with members of the San Francisco community in order to receive advice, encourage participation, and plan for the future. (AS)
