Higher Education in Vermont: Its Resources and Needs. A Report to the Vermont Commission on Higher Education Facilities.
Institute for Educational Development, New York, NY.
Although Vermont does not have a comprehensive system of higher education that embodies both the public and private sectors, the study summarized in this report states that the components for such a system are there. The Institute for Educational Development undertook 3 general activities in this study. First, data were gathered to establish a sound basis for analyzing and projecting the need for additional facilities and programs for higher education in Vermont. Secondly, although originally a comprehensive plan for higher education in the state was to be developed, this came in the form of a recommendation for the establishment of a permanent "Coordinating Council for Post-Secondary Education in Vermont" to fulfill this function. Suggestions for its structure and function were made. Third, the financial capability of Vermont with special reference to the state's aid to education was analyzed. This report is a summary and commentary on the data that were collected, and a series of recommendations. The data, presented extensively in tables, include figures on student enrollments and projections, course and degree offerings library and physical facilities, and number of faculty and staff. (DS)
