Lakeland CC – Spring Enrollment results

Thanks to our Lakeland lobbyists for this information:

2019 SP.LakelandCensusHighlights

They were kind enough to present some evaluation of the data for us to consider:

o   Age: The average age is 25, but median age is 21.  The youngest student I ever had was 14, but I find it pretty cool that our range is 13 to 88 years of age.  (LFC Comment: Pretty cool when someone else is picking up the tab)

o   County: Enrollments from Cuyahoga County dropped the most.  And I am surprised to see that Ashtabula County is also very low.

o   Educational Goal: Take a look at this!  We’re up 32.7% in the category of transfer before completing a degree.  (LFC Comment: Something is wrong!) My challenge to you is try to change the minds of a few students!  There is so much that Lakeland can offer a student beyond a few courses and then transfer.  I earned an Associate’s degree and then transferred … and I really wanted to be able to say I went to college and earned a degree – and not just that I went to college for 1-2 years.

o   Financial Aid: I had never seen this until now, and I find it interesting.  Coming from the Metro Detroit area, the majority of our students were receiving Pell.  Only 24.7% of our students receive Pell.

(LFC Comment: Federal Pell Grants are federal government subsidies that are usually awarded only to undergraduate students who display exceptional financial need and have not earned a bachelor’s, graduate, or professional degree. … A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid, except under certain circumstances. )

o   University Center and East Campus: Very large percent decreases.  I thank those of you who have taught at either location for your commitment to our communities.  Given the east numbers, I would anticipate some conversations.

Here is some information from the Dean:

I had the opportunity to go to Columbus last week for the Student Success Leadership Institute.  There were a number of great topics, but I did want to share a few things I learned:

1.      State funding: one of our measures is developmental math and English student success and completion rates.  I’m happy to hear that there have been conversations around moving from success and completion to adoption of best practices such as acceleration, co-requisite models, best fit models, etc.  As many of you already know, we’ve been doing some great things in English with 1111 and are piloting strategies in math.

2.      Completing college credentials were four times higher when students completed both college-level math and English in their first year (Jenkins, Lahr, Fink, & Ganga, 2018).  This is definitely one area I would like us to actively pursue.

3.      Key Performance Indicators: According to the Community College Research Center, graduation rates over 6 years were 58% for students who take and pass math in the first year.  This is fantastic data, as the last time I saw data relative to students graduating within 6 years from a community college was 39%
