Research Report 99-2: A Seven-Year Comparison of Mendocino College Student Characteristics.
Mendocino Coll., Ukiah, CA.
This report is based on the set of Management Information System (MIS) Summaries of Student Characteristics reported by Mendocino College from fall 1992 to fall 1998. Basic student characteristics data are annually reported by each district to the California Community Colleges in the format established by the statewide MIS. An overall review of changing patterns of student characteristics is intended to provide a descriptive picture of present and past attendance patterns at Mendocino College, as influenced by both internal and external policies and practices. Overall, about two-thirds of Mendocino College students are female; one third are male. Statewide, the proportion of females gradually increased from 55% to just over 56% in the 10-year period ending in fall 1995. Viewed in the context of Lake and Mendocino County population statistics, the presence and distribution of the 15-17% of minority students at Mendocino College approximates the population as a whole. Mendocino's full-time student enrollment has not increased to the same degree as statewide figures. The percentage of evening students has varied, with a long-term stable trend over the past 3 years. The percentage of BA students has increased steadily over the same time period. (JA)
