EXTENSION SERVICES, TELEVISION INSTRUCTION, AND RESEARCH IN VIRGINIA'S INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION. STAFF REPORT NO. 7.
BROWNE, RICHARD G.
RECOMMENDATIONS ON VIRGINIA UNIVERSITY ACTIVITIES IN THE AREAS OF EXTENSION SERVICES, EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION, AND RESEARCH ARE PROPOSED. EXTENSION SERVICES (INCLUDING COMMUNITY AND TECHNICAL COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITY BRANCHES) NOW ADMINISTERED BY SPONSORING INSTITUTIONS, SHOULD BE COORDINATED AT THE STATE LEVEL. STATE CONTROLLED FOUR-YEAR INSTITUTIONS, ESPECIALLY THOSE LOCATED IN CITIES, SHOULD EXPAND THEIR ON-CAMPUS OFFERINGS DURING EVENINGS AND ON SATURDAYS. ALL NEW CLASSROOM BUILDINGS OUGHT TO BE EQUIPPED FOR THE TRANSMISSION AND RECEPTION OF TELEVISED INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS, EITHER LIVE OR FROM VIDEOTAPES. VIRGINIA SHOULD CONTINUE TO COOPERATE WITH THE SOUTHERN REGIONAL EDUCATION BOARD IN ITS WORK RELATING TO OPEN CIRCUIT EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION. EACH STATE-CONTROLLED INSTITUTION SHOULD PROVIDE FUNDS FOR INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH AND THOSE HAVING 3,000 STUDENTS OUGHT TO HAVE AT LEAST ONE FULL-TIME PROFESSIONAL PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR COORDINATING RESEARCH. DEPARTMENTAL RESEARCH OUGHT NOT BE BLANKETED IN THE BUDGET WITH INSTRUCTION THROUGH AN OVERALL REDUCTION OF FACULTY TEACHING LOADS, BUT EACH INSTITUTION SHOULD DETERMINE A DESIRABLE TEACHING LOAD AND THEN ALLOT TO DESIGNATED FACULTY MEMBERS RELEASED TIME AND/OR GRANTS FOR RESEARCH. CEILINGS FOR TOP SALARIES SHOULD BE RAISED TO ATTRACT A FEW OUTSTANDING RESEARCH SCHOLARS. (DOCUMENT INCLUDES 15 TABLES AND A MAP.) (AJ)
