Enrollment is down slightly (3.5 percent) at East Central College this semester, mirroring the situation at most community colleges. Economic, educational and work trends can be seen in the numbers. Usually when the economy is down, enrollment in community colleges increases, and when the economy is good, enrollment drops somewhat.

A significant sign in ECC’s total enrollment of 3,901 students is that 62 percent of the people enrolled are women, a 2 percent gain over last fall. This reflects the fact that women are more evident in business and other fields today. Women will be found in high positions in industry and other fields. It’s a trend that is expected to continue. More women are interested in higher education and careers that end up with them in top positions.
