Miami-Dade Community College Graduate Profile, 1999-2000. Research Report.
This report discusses the characteristics of Miami-Dade Community College (M-DCC) (Florida) graduates for the 1999-2000 academic year. It includes statistics for the entire community college as well as individualized statistics for the separate campuses. The report also highlights changes in statistics from the previous year. The report shows that the community college had 4,938 graduates in 1999-2000. Of that total 59% were Hispanic, 22% were black, and 17% were white. Other results included: (1) 58% of the community college graduates were female; (2) only 49% reported English as their native language; (3) the mean age of college graduates was 28.5 years, but vocational graduates were older, with mean ages ranging from 32.9 for Associate in Science (AS) graduates to 34.6 for vocational credit certificate graduates; (4) the community college showed a rise in AS degrees, but a drop in vocational credit certificates; (5) Hispanic proportions are highest for the Associate in Arts (AA) degree (63% Hispanic), while black non-Hispanic proportions are highest for the AS degree (30% black); (6) males predominate in college credit certificates (69%), probably due to the paramedic program; and (7) there were 351 fewer AA graduates, due in part to the lack of automatic graduation during the implementation of the college's new degree audit system. (Contains 17 tables with college-wide and individual campus statistics and demographics.) (MKF)
