THE EVENING COLLEGE AND THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE--AN EXAMINATION OF THE CONFLICT IN NEW YORK AND A PROJECTION FOR NEW JERSEY.
FRENCH, RAYMOND W.
INTERVIEWS WITH 14 EVENING COLLEGE AND THREE COMMUNITY COLLEGE DEANS WERE CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE (1) THE NATURE OF CONFLICTS BETWEEN THE TWO TYPES OF INSTITUTION, (2) THE EFFECTS OF THE COMMUNITY COLLEGES ON THE EVENING COLLEGES IN NEW YORK, AND (3) AREAS OF POSSIBLE CONFLICT EXPECTED WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT OF JUNIOR COLLEGES IN NEW JERSEY. TWELVE EVENING COLLEGE DEANS FELT THAT LOSS OF LOWER DIVISION STUDENTS WOULD CAUSE THEIR INSTITUTIONS TO BECOME PRIMARILY UPPER DIVISION IN CHARACTER. EVENING DEANS FELT THAT IT WAS TOO EARLY TO ASSESS THE EFFECT OF COMMUNITY COLLEGE TRANSFER STUDENTS. THE PRIVATE EVENING COLLEGES IN NEW YORK WERE MOST SERIOUSLY AFFECTED BY ENROLLMENT LOSSES AND HAVE ENTERED INTO CLOSE COOPERATIVE AGREEMENTS WITH COMMUNITY COLLEGES. NEW JERSEY EVENING DEANS EXPECTED THE LOSS OF SOME BEGINNING STUDENTS FOLLOWED BY GAINS IN TRANSFER STUDENTS. EVIDENCE OF DISAGREEMENT AS TO COMMUNITY COLLEGE ROLES IN NONCREDIT PROGRAMS AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION INDICATED THE POSSIBILITY OF FUTURE CONFLICT. THE AUTHOR RECOMMENDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF (1) CLEAR GUIDELINES FOR ARTICULATION AND (2) PROCEDURAL ARRANGEMENTS BETWEEN THE TWO TYPES OF INSTITUTION. HE CONCLUDES THAT COMMUNITY COLLEGES SHOULD BE COMPREHENSIVE, BUT SHOULD NOT OFFER COURSES ABOVE THE LOWER DIVISION LEVEL. (WO)
