3. Community colleges serve the community

Many people enroll to take a few classes with no intention of graduating. Here are reasons that students may sign up for a single class or for only a few classes: they want skills that will help them obtain a promotion at work; they want some classes that will help them in their own businesses; they are stationed at a nearby military base and want to earn some college credits they can transfer when they move to their next base; they want to learn more about a particular subject for their own enrichment.

I know because I taught part-time at community colleges for years.
