CCBC Academic and Campus Plans, 2002-2004.
Baltimore County Community Coll., MD.
This Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) (Maryland) academic plan provides direction to the college in its transformation into a learning college of the 21st century. The College's strategic plan, LearningFirst, provides the foundation and the inspiration for the academic plan, which advances two central themes contained in CCBC's vision: the development of learning-centered academic programs and student support systems, as well as the evolution of a single-college, multi-campus organization. The College was created from three independent colleges that shared a board of trustees. This document contains the campus plan for each of the three CCBC campuses: Catonsville, Dundalk, and Essex. Demographic trends in Maryland indicate that population growth in Maryland is likely to be below the national average. The greatest growth (32%) is expected in the newer suburbs. In 1995, 81% of Baltimore County's population was white. That figure is expected to decline to 75% by 2005. In addition, incomes of families in the top bracket have risen by 37% since the late 1970s, while incomes of families in the bottom 20% fell by 9%. The 17-19 year age group will rise the sharpest in community college enrollment, while the 60+ age group will also increase steadily. All of these factors contribute to the statistics and projections presented in this document. (NB)
