Proposed Construction of the Madera County Educational Center in the State Center Community College District. A Report to the Governor and Legislature in Response to a Request from the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
In this report, the California Postsecondary Education Commission responds to a request by the Chancellor of the California Community Colleges to review the need for and location of a new educational center, the Madera County Educational Center, north of Fresno within the State Center Community College District. The report contains nine conclusions made by the Commission regarding enrollment projections, alternatives, serving the disadvantaged, academic planning, funding projections, accessibility, effects on other institutions, environmental impact, and economic efficiency. It makes four recommendations regarding the proposed center: (1) the Madera County Educational Center should be approved as an educational center of the State Center Community College District, (2) the Madera County Educational Center should become eligible for State capital outlay funding as of the 1994-95 fiscal year, (3) the State Center Community College District should provide the Commission with a copy of the Final Environmental Impact Report upon its completion, and (4) should the State Center Community College District propose to convert the Madera County Educational Center to a full service community college, it should submit a request for that conversion to the Commission. Part 1 presents conclusions and recommendations, Part 2 discusses the background to the proposal, and Part 3 presents an analysis of the proposal. This report contains five appendices and 17 references. (VWC)
