BOARD OF HIGHER EDUCATION REPORT ON THE DESIRABILITY OF ELEVATING EAST CAROLINA COLLEGE TO INDEPENDENT UNIVERSITY STATUS.
HILL, WATTS, JR.; AND OTHERS
EAST CAROLINA COLLEGE'S REQUEST FOR UNIVERSITY STATUS STIMULATED NORTH CAROLINA'S BOARD OF HIGHER EDUCATION TO EVALUATE THE STATE'S NEED FOR AND ABILITY TO FINANCE ADDED INSTRUCTIONAL FACILITIES AND PROGRAMS AT THE DOCTORAL LEVEL THROUGH 1975, THE PRESENT ORGANIZATION OF HIGHER EDUCATION, AND THE INTEREST OF SEVERAL INSTITUTIONS IN BECOMING UNIVERSITIES. BASED ON THE FINDINGS OF THE VARIOUS STUDIES, THE FOLLOWING RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE--(1) AT PRESENT, THERE SHALL BE NO FUNDAMENTAL CHANGE IN THE STRUCTURE OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN NORTH CAROLINA, (2) NEED FOR SUCH CHANGE SHALL BE PART OF A LONG-RANGE STUDY TO BE COMPLETED IN AUGUST 1968, (3) EAST CAROLINA COLLEGE'S REQUEST SHOULD NOT BE GRANTED. THE SCHOOL SHOULD STRENGTHEN AND BROADEN ITS MASTER'S DEGREE PROGRAMS, AND (4) EAST CAROLINA COLLEGE AND OTHER 5-YEAR COLLEGES SHOULD HAVE SUFFICIENT RESOURCES FOR FULFILLING WITH DISTINCTION PROGRAMS APPROPRIATE TO THEIR PRESENT FUNCTIONS AS ESTABLISHED IN THE GENERAL STATUTES OF NORTH CAROLINA.
