Report of the Academic Advisory Committee on Birkbeck College.
Birkbeck Coll., London (England).
Birbeck College, a non-residential School of the University of London, provides facilities in central London for part-time education in arts and sciences, at first degree and graduate levels. During 1966, an academic advisory committee studied the future role of the College and reported with recommendations concerning the size and scope of the College's operations to the Senate and Governors. Its departments and courses, student body, academic staff, facilities, and constitution and government were examined, together with future demands from mature students employed full time, the role of Birbeck College in meeting these demands, and guidelines for expanding its physical plant. It was concluded that demand by mature students for university courses will increase, that Birbeck should continue to serve such students as part of the responsibility of the University of London, and that changes could be made in facilities, undergraduate course offerings, postgraduate study and research, and administrative organization. Included are a historical review, eight appendixes, and 43 tables. (ly)
