Connecticut Community-Technical Colleges Annual Report to the Governor, 1998-99.
Connecticut State Board of Trustees of Community-Technical Colleges, Hartford.
This report provides the 1998-99 data on the 12 Connecticut Community-Technical Colleges, as reported to the governor. The average Community-Technical College student in 1998-1999 was 30 years of age. Students enrolled in occupational programs represented 43 percent of enrollment, and approximately 28 percent pursued Liberal Arts and Sciences and General Studies programs. The scope of activities in the School-to Career and Technical Preparation programs has expanded during the 1998-1999 year. All colleges have been developing skills outcomes statements for all career programs to better coordinate with the CBIA-developed skills standards. Master plans for several facilities constructions have moved forward. The new Learning Resource Building at Manchester is scheduled for substantial completion and occupancy in June of 2000. The PC Core Competency Training Program has provided ongoing technology training in the major PC office applications as well as Internet and Web technology through training classes provided at the community-technical colleges. The system has contracted with an independent natural gas supplier to provide gas service to eight colleges, with a resulting saving of some 10 percent during the first year of the contract. During the 1998-1999 year, the Chancellor's Office established a Labor/Management Committee to review the Minority Fellowship Program, reaffirming its commitment to affirmative action and equal opportunity.
