Introduction

From its modest beginning with 325 students in 1964, to its present enrollment of nearly 18,000 students, the Community College of Rhode Island has grown to meet the goals of its founders. For more than 45 years, the college has provided academic transfer programs, career-oriented training and student support services of the highest caliber. Today there are 57,000 graduates of CCRI, many of whom live in the state and work to make it a better place.

The college offers programs in academic and vocational-technical areas as well as a full complement of programs and services for full and part-time students, for recent high school graduates and for older, adult learners.The student body is diverse in age, culture and experience. Sixty percent are women, 68 percent are part-time, 27 percent are from an ethnic minority group, and 42 percent are 25 years of age or older. Many graduating students transfer to four-year colleges and universities, others complete career-oriented programs which can lead to immediate employment in technical fields.

CCRI's faculty totals about 300 full-time members. The college grants the Associate in Arts (A.A.), the Associate in Science (A.S.), the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.), the Associate in Applied Science in Technical Studies (A.A.S.-T.S.) and the Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degrees. Several one-year certificates are also awarded.

CCRI opens its facilities for public use, sponsors programs on issues of public concern, and offers workshops and seminars for small businesses, for government agencies and for individuals seeking to improve their skills or enhance their lives.
