CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN CALIFORNIA HIGHER EDUCATION--DELINEATION OF FUNCTIONS, COORDINATION, FINANCE, GENERAL EXTENSION CENTERS.
RICHARDS, JOHN R.; AND OTHERS
TWO PRINCIPLES SHOULD GUIDE CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS--(1) EVERY OFFERING OF AN INSTITUTION DESIGNED TO MEET THE NEEDS OF ADULTS SHOULD REFLECT THE STRENGTHS AND CAPABILITIES OF THAT INSTITUTION, AND (2) EVERY CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAM SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY INTEGRATED WITH THE INSTRUCTIONAL DEPARTMENT OF THE CAMPUS INVOLVED. THE JUNIOR COLLEGES SHOULD (1) OFFER ALL LOWER-DIVISION COURSES WITHIN THEIR DISTRICTS, WITH CERTAIN SPECIFIC EXCEPTIONS, (2) OFFER NON-GRADED CLASSES EXCLUSIVELY OF A POST-HIGH SCHOOL CALIBER, UNLESS REQUESTED TO DO OTHERWISE BY THE LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT, (3) HAVE CLEARCUT AND STRICT CRITERIA FOR GRADED CLASSES, AND (4) IMPLEMENT A MATRICULATION POLICY FOR ALL STUDENTS IN GRADED CLASSES. STATE COLLEGES SHOULD (1) OFFER AS NEEDED LOWER DIVISION, UPPER DIVISION, GRADUATE AND NONCREDIT COURSES ON THEIR CAMPUSES AND EXISTING EXTENSION CENTERS, (2) NOT OFFER LOWER DIVISION COURSES OFF THEIR CAMPUSES, (3) OFFER UPPER DIVISION CREDIT AND NONCREDIT COURSES AND GRADUATE COURSES DESIGNED PRIMARILY FOR TEACHER IMPROVEMENT, AND (4) OFFER EXTENSION OFF-CAMPUS COURSES ONLY IN THEIR NORMAL SERVICE AREAS. THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA SHOULD (1) CONTINUE CURRENT PRACTICES ON ITS CAMPUSES AND EXTENSION CENTERS, (2) NOT OFFER LOWER DIVISION CREDIT COURSES OFF ITS CAMPUSES AND EXTENSION CENTERS, (3) OFFER OFF CAMPUS GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE COURSES EXCEPT TEACHER TRAINING, (4) BE THE SOLE AGENCY FOR CORRESPONDENCE COURSES.
