PINE, WILLIAM C.; AND OTHERS
A STUDY OF POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION NEEDS IN MICHIGAN RESULTED IN THE RECOMMENDATION THAT A STATEWIDE SYSTEM OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES BE DEVELOPED TO AUGMENT THE THEN-EXISTING 18 INDEPENDENT COMMUNITY COLLEGES WITHIN THE STATE. ADVOCATING THAT THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION STUDY THE NEEDS AND READINESS OF AREAS WITHIN THE STATE FOR THE LOCATION OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES, THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDED THAT 29 COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICTS (SOME OF WHICH WOULD BE MULTICOUNTY OR MULTICOLLEGE IN NATURE) BE PRESCRIBED FOR THE STATE. OVERALL PLANNING AND COORDINATION BY THE STATE BOARD SHOULD INCLUDE (1) THE COORDINATION OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AMONG INSTITUTIONS RANGING FROM HIGH SCHOOLS TO 4-YEAR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, (2) THE COORDINATION OF CAMPUSES AND TYPES OF INSTITUTIONS THROUGHOUT THE STATE INCLUDING THE DETERMINATION OF COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT BOUNDARY LINES AND THE LOCATION OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES, AND (3) THE REVIEW OF BUDGETS AND REQUESTS FOR STATE APPROPRIATIONS. NEEDS WERE CITED FOR A DIFFERENTIATION IN THE PLANNING AND COORDINATING ACTIVITIES OF THE STATE BOARD AND THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE GOVERNING BOARDS, FOR MORE ACCURATE AND CURRENT DATA ABOUT OCCUPATIONAL NEEDS OF THE STATE AND NATION, FOR FOLLOWUP STUDIES OF GRADUATES, FOR RECRUITING STAFF, AND FOR OBTAINING GREATER FINANCIAL RESOURCES. INCLUDED IN THE REPORT ARE DESCRIPTIONS OF PROPOSED COMMUNITY COLLEGE CENTERS AND DISTRICTS FOR MICHIGAN (WITH ACCOMPANYING MAPS AND CHARTS). (DG)
