Technical Education in Ohio's State-Assisted Institutions of Higher Education. Progress Report.
Ohio Board of Regents, Columbus.
Since 1963, 18 campuses have been developed in Ohio at public institutions of higher education offering a 2-year program in technical education. Three additional centers for technical education are being developed. In 1967-69 more than 14,000 students were enrolled in 215 different technical education programs with nearly 2,000 associate degrees earned in the academic year ending June 30, 1968. Supplemented by federal funds over $52 million appropriated by the Ohio General Assembly has been spent for these 2-year campuses. The Ohio Board of Regents and the State Board of Education consider technical education beyond high school an integral part of higher education, and the former has established appropriate standards for curriculum, faculty and facilities. As funds become available, the Ohio Board of Regents plans to extend the network of technical education centers, to improve the financial support of technical education, and to encourage increased student and employer understanding and acceptance of technical education.
