Management and Economics Research, Inc., Palo Alto, CA.; Colorado State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education, Denver.
A LONG-RANGE STATEWIDE MASTER PLAN FOR THE COORDINATED DEVELOPMENT OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES AND OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION WAS DEVELOPED BY A CONSULTANT FIRM FROM DATA DERIVED FROM AUTHORITATIVE LITERATURE, COLLEGE ADMINISTRATORS, KNOWLEDGEABLE PERSONS THROUGHOUT THE STATE, NATIONAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND OCCUPATIONAL EDUCATION CONSULTANTS, AND STATE DIRECTORS OF THE RELATED AGENCIES.
