Summary

Data related to community college education in Nebraska are presented in this report as drawn from the sixth Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey, an ongoing study of the quality of life in the state. Introductory material details study methodology, funding sources, and uses of the data. Next, background information is provided on community colleges in Nebraska and recent changes in the proportions of arts and science graduates from these institutions. The ensuing sections present study findings related to the extent to which Nebraskans use the community colleges for vocational, transfer, and recreational purposes and the degree to which they support each of these functions. These findings indicate that: (1) 192 of the 1,906 Nebraska residents surveyed had attended a community college during the preceding year; (2) of those, 48.9% had taken one course, 25.5% two or three courses, and 25.6% four or more courses; (3) 35.4% of those taking courses intended to complete an associate degree or certificate; (4) 61.5% of those taking courses used the colleges to obtain a vocational education; and (5) approximately 80% of all respondents considered vocational programs "very important" to maintain, while 70% and 34% viewed the transfer function and liberal arts programs respectively as "very important" to maintain.
