Community collegeenrollment soars:What’s next?
 ANN ARBOR — Michigan’scommunity college enrollment hassoared by 49.8 percent since 1999-
2000 even as K-12 enrollment has
fallen by 104,090 students or 6 per-cent.Michigan community collegeenrollments have grown to the full-
time equivalent of 161,223 students
as economically displaced workerschange careers and as new govern-ment incentives, including a new GIBill, encourage people to return toschool.Peter Riley Bahr, a University of Michigan expert on community colleges, has completed the rareourney from community collegestudent to Ph.D. scholar. Bahr him-self spent a portion of his early col-lege years at a community college,and he began his research career at
the state ofce that administers all
of California’s community colleges,which collectively constitute thelargest postsecondary system in theworld.Besides conducting a great dealof research on the rapidly evolvingcommunity colleges, he is teachinga new course in January on com-munity college students.“More than any other type of higher education institution, thecommunity college draws studentsof incredibly varied backgrounds,pursuing academic objectives thatare equally varied,” said Bahr, anassistant professor of higher educa-tion at U-M’s Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Edu-cation.More growth is expected in theyears ahead. President Obama vis-ited Macomb Community Collegein Warren last July to detail his
plans to invest $12 billion to meet

 MSU Extensionto honor 4-H youth, volunteers
EAST LANSING — Young people,their families and volunteer leaders with Michigan State University Exten-sion (MSUE) 4-H Youth Development will cheer on the MSU women’s basket- ball team as it takes on the Ohio StateBuckeyes on Saturday at the MSU Bre-slin Center.MSUE 4-H Day with the Lady Spar-tans is a celebration of the MSUE 4-Hprogram.Tickets are free for 4-H members, volunteers, MSUE staff members andtheir families. To order tickets, contact
the MSUE county ofce at (888) 678-
3464.This year’s women’s basketball cele- bration will pay special tribute to Michi-gan 4-H nutrition, health and well-be-ing programs. There will be activitiesand displays to help Michigan residentsmake smart food choices, learn aboutnutrition and apply what they learn,manage their food budget, managechronic diseases, prevent disease andimprove their overall physical, mentaland social well-being.“Health and nutrition is importantto teach 4-H youth because sometimes youth don’t always get that informationat home or school,” said associate pro-gram leader B’Onko Sadler. “If youthlearn how to eat right and stay physically 
t at an early age, they become healthier
adults.“They also take that information back home and share it with their caregiv-ers. Being healthy leads to fewer doctor visits and an increase in overall health,helping families spend less on medicalservices.”Besides learning about health andnutrition, 4-Hers will also sing the na-tional anthem and lead the 4-H pledge before the game. There will be an op-portunity to get photos with Sparty, theMSU cheerleaders and possibly the Lady Spartans. Attendees are asked to show off their
