HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT OF BRANCHES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT.
WYLLIE, ROBERT HUGH
THIS STUDY DESCRIBES THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE HARTFORD, STAMFORD, TORRINGTON, AND WATERBURY BRANCES OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CONNECTICUT FROM THEIR BEGINNINGS AS DIVISION OF UNIVERSITY EXTENSION PROGRAMS TO THEIR PRESENT STATUS (1963) AS EDUCATIONAL UNITS ENROLLING A FOURTH OF THE UNDERGRADUATE STUDENT BODY. IT ALSO DESCRIBES THE FORT TRUMBULL BRANCH PROGRAM, THE UNIVERSITY'S MAJOR EFFORT TO MEET HEAVY DEMANDS FOR HIGHER EDUCATION BY VETERANS OF WORLD WAR 2. EACH BRANCH PROGRAM BEGAN AS A SMALL ASSORTMENT OF COURSE OFFERINGS GIVEN IN PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOMS. AS STUDENT ENROLLMENT INCREASED THE PROGRAMS WERE EXPANDED AND THE ENLARGED CURRICULUMS ATTRACTED GREATER NUMBERS OF STUDENTS. GROWTH OF THE PROGRAMS PROMPTED ACTION TO ACQUIRE PERMANENT FACILITIES, AND THE HARTFORD, STAMFORD, AND WATERBURY BRANCHES NOW OCCUPY THEIR OWN CAMPUS. THE TORRINGTON CAMPUS WILL BE OCCUPIED AS SOON AS A BUILDING IS COMPLETED. THE FORT TRUMBULL BRANCH WAS SET UP FOR A LIMITED PERIOD, IN BORROWED QUARTERS, AS A RESIDENT CAMPUS WITH A TEMPORARY STAFF, AND WAS TERMINATED AFTER FOUR YEARS.
