Johnson County Residents' Educational Interests, Needs, and Perceptions: An Environmental Scan.
Conklin, Karen A.
This report discusses the results of a survey administered in fall 1998 by the Office of Institutional Research at Johnson County Community College (JCCC) in Kansas. The survey, distributed every five years as part of an overall environmental scan, aims to assess residents' perceptions and opinions of the college. A sample of 1,005 Johnson County residents, age 21 and older, were interviewed. Fifty-nine percent of respondents were female. Nearly 49% of the interviewees had completed a bachelor's degree or above, 4% held associates degrees, and another 36% completed at least some college or a vocational certificate. Short telephone interviews were also conducted with 90 individuals who indicated they were unfamiliar with the college. The report includes: (1) profiles of respondents who are familiar and those who are unfamiliar with JCCC; (2) respondents' experiences with, and awareness of, JCCC functions and services; (3) an evaluation of JCCC functions detailed in the college mission statement; and (4) opinions of respondents regarding JCCC activities. Appended are a tabular presentation of results and summarized comments. (AS)
