The Importance of Coordination in Higher Education.
McCarrey, Leon R.; Kolber, Lawrence B.
This document illustrates several ways by which program allocation can facilitate development of quality educational programs in Utah. A major portion of the document is devoted to a State-by-State analysis of the single boards and councils of higher education in 21 States. These investigations are concerned with the structure, authority, responsibility, and institutional guidelines for the approval of new programs. The need for a central State coordinating agency for the State of Utah is then determined, and an attempt is made to develop specific criteria and guidelines for the evaluation of instructional programs and administrative units. Since Utah is lagging behind a number of States in developing an integrated Statewide educational program, it is suggested that this proposed agency should be empowered, via appropriate legislation, to review and allocate programs for Utah's institutions of higher education.
