State commission says CCC independence OK

April 09, 1993

A committee of the Maryland Higher Education Commission has recommended allowing Carroll Community College to become independent.

The full commission is expected to act on the recommendation when it meets Wednesday, said Rosemary Straub, CCC's coordinator of community relations.

The college has been a branch campus of Catonsville Community College. Last summer, it began to accelerate plans for independence, based on a recommendation by Shaila R. Aery, state secretary of higher education.

The Education Policy Committee of the Higher Education Commission met yesterday and approved independence for Carroll.

"We have every reason to hope and believe the full commission will accept the recommendation of the Education Policy Committee," said Ms. Straub.

Several Carroll Community College officials attended the meeting, Ms. Straub said.

Independence for Carroll would mean more state reimbursement for the college -- an estimated $256,000 more per year, starting July 1.
