A MASTER PLAN FOR HIGHER EDUCATION IN PENNSYLVANIA.
MCCREERY, OTIS C.; AND OTHERS
FROM 1965 TO 1975 LARGE INCREASES ARE PROJECTED IN THE PERCENTAGE OF PENNSYLVANIA HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES WHO ENTER COLLEGE, AND AT LEAST A 60 PERCENT INCREASE IN TOTAL COLLEGE ENROLLMENT IS EXPECTED. A TRIPARTITE SYSTEM OF HIGHER EDUCATION IS PROPOSED--(1) COMMUNITY COLLEGES WILL PROVIDE HIGHER EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS WITHIN COMMUTING DISTANCE. COMPREHENSIVE IN SCOPE, THEY WILL OFFER LOWER DIVISION, OCCUPATIONAL, GENERAL, AND ADULT EDUCATION. FINANCING WILL BE A SHARED RESPONSIBILITY OF THE STATE, THE LOCAL SPONSOR, AND THE STUDENT. (2) STATE COLLEGES WILL PROVIDE FOR A LARGE PART OF THE INCREASED INSTRUCTIONAL LOAD THROUGH THE MASTER'S DEGREE LEVEL. EVENTUALLY DOCTORAL PROGRAMS WILL BE INITIATED IN SELECTED FIELDS. FINANCING WILL BE SHARED BY THE STATE AND THE STUDENT, SUPPLEMENTED BY FEDERAL AND PRIVATE FUNDS. (3) THE UNIVERSITY WILL HAVE PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITY FOR EDUCATION IN THE PROFESSIONS, AND WILL BE INCREASINGLY CONCERNED WITH UPPER DIVISION AND GRADUATE STUDENTS. FINANCING WILL BE SIMILAR TO THAT IN THE STATE COLLEGES. EACH SEGMENT WILL HAVE ITS OWN COORDINATING COUNCIL, WITH A COUNCIL OF HIGHER EDUCATION TO WORK WITH THE THREE SEGMENTS. (WO)
