Toward a Stronger System of Higher Education. Biennial Report of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission.
Tennessee Higher Education Commission, Nashville.
This report by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission to the Governor and the General Assembly identifies the major issues facing the state, and makes recommendations. Tennessee must expand educational opportunity for its young people and provide more programs and assistance for disadvantaged and low income youth. The community college program has substantially aided this effort and should be expanded. Graduate programs are the fastest growing part of the state's higher education system and limited doctoral programs are being planned for several universities. Duplication of programs should be avoided through interinstitutional cooperation, and new programs must be developed as needs arise. The report also discusses (1) the need for a more efficient system of higher education, and the Commission's effort in that behalf; (2) the need for reorganization of the higher education governing bodies; (3) financing the growth of higher education; and (4) capital outlay. Tables on enrollment, degrees, courses and finances are included. (AF)
