Washington Community and Technical Colleges Academic Year Report, 2001-02.
Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, Olympia.
This 2001-02 report of the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges examines courses offered, student demographics and enrollment, student progress and success, staff, facilities, and expenditures for the system's 30 college districts. Highlights of the report follow. Washington community and technical colleges enrolled the equivalent of 164,836 full-time students during academic year 2001-2002, an increase of 4.2% over 2000-2001. Of the total, 81% were in state-funded courses. State-funded FTEs are supported by student tuition and state funding. The racial composition of the student population was much more diverse than that of the state as a whole, with 30% of the student population consisting of people of color (the state minority population is 21%). More than 56% of students were female, also higher than the state population. Less than 4% of total enrollment consisted of students with disabilities. Most state-supported FTEs were generated by students enrolled for workforce education or preparing to transfer to four-year institutions (46% and 39%, respectively). Welfare students from all funding sources totaled 21,598, which is less than a 1% decrease from the previous year. A total of 16,897 individuals were employed in state-supported positions in Washington community colleges in 2001-02. System expenditures were over $863.5 million, and capital appropriations totaled more than $289.7 million. (NB)
