The Alabama College System Statistical Profiles, 1996-1997.
Alabama State Dept. of Postsecondary Education, Montgomery.
This factbook was created to assist decisionmakers within the Department of Postsecondary Education, and on each two-year campus, to make institutional comparisons within system-wide profiles, and to assist in statewide trend analyses. The aims involve preparing Alabamians for the 21st century, based on previous research that found eighty percent of the new jobs available in the next decade will require a minimum of two years of postsecondary education, and that seventy five percent of Alabamians will not earn a baccalaureate degree. At the same time, employers are indicating that their existing workers need additional training. This report details five main sections: (1) a system profile, including the history, mission, system initiatives, community service activities, and distance education programs; (2) a student profile, featuring enrollment trends, financial aid, and the inmate population; (3) an instructional profile, detailing program offerings, accreditation, credit hour production, average class sizes, and awards: (4) personnel profile, with full- and part-time personnel numbers, salary information, and student-faculty ratios; (5) fiscal and facilities profile, describing sources of revenue, expenditures by function and object, and physical facilities. It also provides a profile of Athens State College and the Alabama Industrial Development Training Institute. (JJL)
