The Faces of the Future survey has revealed the following about community college students:
Higher percentages of students in racial/ethnic minorities, with the exception of Hispanic/Latino, are enrolling in community colleges. Significantly, more of those students cite learning the English language and culture as a major reason for attending college.
75% of non-credit students reported having a steady, secure job was very important to them. An increasing number also reported that making a lot of money was important to them.
Significantly higher number of both credit and non-credit students have web and e-mail access in their homes, at their jobs, and at the college.
