Implementation of Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965 in Tennessee.
Welch, Franklin Weldon
The purpose of this study was to analyze the operation of Title I of the Higher Education Act of 1965 in Tennessee. Sources of data were: Title I files in the State Agency at the University of Tennessee, college catalogs, correspondence, printed materials, questionnaires completed by institutional directors of Title I, and interviews with state agency officials and Title I institutional directors. The research method employed was the case study. The program in Tennessee followed the stated philosophy and the "Regulations." Problems restricting implementation of Title I were: the naming of the University of Tennessee as the state agency, the limited function of the advisory council system, state agency emphasis upon research, manpower shortages at institutions and the agency, problems in communication, and inexperience. Significant relationships were found between amount of funds received and planning with persons outside higher education, population density, and number of participants. Title I participants were community leaders and professionals living in urban communities. Thirty-two proposals were funded under the 1966-67 funding. Personnel used in Title I were from the field of higher education and held the doctorate or a high position in community leadership. (author/nl)
