Purpose: This study investigated the priorities of twelve commnunity college constituent groups in order to determine if their priorities were consistent with function statements established by the California Ccmnunity College Board of Governors in 1983. The mission function statenents were: Associate Degrees, Certificate Programs, Conmunity Services, Continuing and Corrmunity Education, General Education, Joint Programs, Remediation and Basic Skills Education, Student Services, and Transfer Education. It was hypothesized that the twelve groups would respond differently based upon the conditions under which they were ranking the function statements, that there would be differences among the districts depending upon the size of the district, and that there would be differences among the respondents on the basis of community college attendance.
