One purpose of this study was to assess how well Metropolitan Technical Community College is performing its mission of meeting the public's need for vocational education. This was measured, in part, by conducting a survey of the general public in each of the four counties the College serves, as well as the immediate neighborhood around each of its current or proposed campuses.

The second purpose of this study, to be discussed partially in the next chapter of this report, was to determine the vocational education needs and the continuing education interests of the respondents in these samples.

The measurement of the public's evaluation of Metro Tech will be discussed in three sections focusing upon a) recommendation of Metro Tech for technical or vocational courses, b) rating the College's service in meeting the public's needs, and c) the public's awareness of the mission, services, and locations of Metro Tech.
