REPORT OF A STUDY OF THE FEASIBILITY OF A JUNIOR COLLEGE IN ROOSEVELT, UTAH.
WHEELWRIGHT, LORIN F.; AND OTHERS
FEASIBILITY STUDIES COMPLETED IN THE ROOSEVELT, UTAH, AREA INDICATE THAT THE EXISTING POST-HIGH SCHOOL INSTITUTIONS MEET THE NEEDS OF THE AREA WELL. ESTIMATES OF POTENTIAL ENROLLMENT INDICATE THAT FEWER THAN 300 REGULAR STUDENTS FROM THE REGION CAN BE EXPECTED IN ANY YEAR FOR AT LEAST A DECADE AHEAD. ALSO A MAJOR PROPORTION OF THE STUDENTS, WHICH A COLLEGE AT ROOSEVELT WOULD SEEK TO SERVE, LIVE BEYOND A PRACTICAL COMMUTING DISTANCE. THE QUALITY WOULD BE WEAKENED BECAUSE OF THE COMPARATIVELY LOW ECONOMIC SUPPORT PROVIDED FOR UTAH'S PUBLIC HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT NO APPROPRIATION FOR A JUNIOR COLLEGE BE MADE AT THIS TIME BUT THAT A STUDY SHOULD BE MADE OF VARIOUS MEANS OF EXPANDING PRESENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR POST-HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION.
