This environmental scan is intended to guide San Francisco City College in the coming years amidst a changing environment. The report is divided into five chapters: Demographic Trends, Enrollment Trends, Economic Trends, Educational Trends, and Policy Trends. Demographic Trends provides an overview of the current population of San Francisco (SF) by examining ethnicity, age, gender, education, poverty status, and other similar factors. When possible, this information is provided for subsections of the city. Additionally, a number of predictions are made about trends in these areas to allow for long term planning. Enrollment Trends provides enrollment trends and forecasts for City College of San Francisco as well as the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD). Looking at the students currently in SFUSD provides some indication of what future enrollments of first time, just-out-of-high-school, community college students will look like.

This trend discusses some major economic initiatives in SF and their likely impacts on the local economy.
