These Research Briefs examine Mt. San Antonio College District's (MSAC's) (California) enrollment trends. Over the last few years, the district has drawn a large number of students from surrounding areas; however, there are concerns as to whether this fact will remain the same as new forms of educational techniques such as distance education and satellite facilities arise. The number of outside district students enrolled at MSAC has not changed significantly from fall 1997 to fall 1999. If the current enrollment trend continues, the concern for loss of students from outside districts may be unwarranted. The briefs also discuss student ethnicity for fall 1999. Breakdowns of ethnicity are provided (25% white, 40% Hispanic, 6% Filipino, 6% African American, 19% Asian/Pacific Islander, and 0.7% American Indian/Alaskan Natives). Whites, African Americans, and American Indians/Alaskan Natives also have higher percentages of women within their groups. MSAC's student's ethnicity shows great diversity and growth. Finally, the briefs describe MSAC's Center for Student Success (CSS), stating that the purpose of the center is to identify, promote, and share exemplary practices occurring across the state, and to provide students with the tools they need for greater success within the community college. Structure of the center itself, and research and work groups are discussed, along with objectives for the first year of implementation. (CJW)
