URBAN COMMUNITY COLLEGES GO MULTICAMPUS.
JENSEN, ARTHUR M.
IN AN ANALYSIS OF THE TREND OF URBAN JUNIOR COLLEGES TOWARD MULTICAMPUS DISTRICTS, THE ADVANTAGES OF VARIOUS MULTICAMPUS ORGANIZATIONAL PLANS ARE COMPARED. EACH OF THE 10 DISTRICTS STUDIED FOLLOWED ONE OF THREE BASIC ORGANIZATIONAL PATTERNS--(1) MULTICOLLEGE, IN WHICH THE DISTRICT OPERATES TWO OR MORE INDIVIDUAL COMPREHENSIVE COLLEGES, (2) MULTIBRANCH, IN WHICH THE DISTRICT OPERATES A SINGLE LEGAL INSTITUTION WITH TWO OR MORE COMPREHENSIVE CAMPUSES, AND (3) MULTIPROGRAM, IN WHICH THE DISTRICT OPERATES AS A MULTIBRANCH DISTRICT EXCEPT THAT EACH CAMPUS OFFERS A DIFFERENT EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM (FOR EXAMPLE, A TECHNICAL AND VOCATIONAL PROGRAM ON ONE CAMPUS, AND ARTS AND SCIENCES ON ANOTHER). THE MOST IMPORTANT OF SEVERAL RECOMMENDATIONS IS THAT EACH BRANCH IN A MULTICAMPUS DISTRICT SHOULD BE ALLOWED AS GREAT A DEGREE OF AUTONOMY AS THE DISTRICT CAN PROVIDE. THE AUTONOMY RESULTING FROM THE ORGANIZATION OF MULTICOLLEGE DISTRICTS USUALLY LEADS TO ADMINISTRATIVE EFFICIENCY ADEQUATE TO SATISFY FACULTY AND STUDENTS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "JUNIOR COLLEGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 36, NUMBER 3, NOVEMBER 1965 AND IS AVAILABLE FROM AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF JUNIOR COLLEGES, 1315 SIXTEENTH STREET, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036, FOR $0.50.
