New State Colleges in Connecticut.
Dober, Walquist, and Harris, Inc., Cambridge, MA.; Connecticut Board of Trustees of State Colleges, Hartford.
This study of the state college system was undertaken by a private planning firm for the board of trustees of the Connecticut state college system. The purpose was to survey the present status of the college system in relation to the educational needs of Connecticut, and to discuss the feasibility of establishing new colleges to meet these needs. Based on projected population trends, the recommendation given is that a six college system or nine college system located in major population concentrations can satisfy these needs. Expansion of the present institutions is also discussed. The appendixes give detailed pertinent data about Connecticut and the four existing state colleges, estimates of probable development costs and possible timetables for development, and some considerations on relocation.
