Meeting the Enrollment Demand for Public Higher Education in California through 1977; The Need for Additional Colleges and University Campuses.
California State Coordinating Council for Higher Education, Sacramento.
This study on the need for and location of new higher education facilities in California is the second in a series of statewide studies spanning two decades. The study assumes that current policies concerning student admissions, distribution of enrollments, and the form and structure of higher education will not change drastically in the near future. It examines in detail the University of California, the California State Colleges, and the public Junior Colleges and focuses on those measures which these systems alone, or in combination can take to accommodate increasing enrollments through more efficient use and development of existing facilities. Attention is directed to the following methods: (1) redirection of excess demand at one or more campuses or colleges within a segment to other campuses or colleges of the same segment with available physical capacity; (2) increasing the planned annual growth of colleges or campuses which have not yet reached their planned maximum enrollment ceilings; and (3) increasing the number of students to be accommodated on a given campus or college by (a) increasing the projected size of the summer term; (b) extending the instructional program into evening hours and Saturday classes, and (c) adding additional facilities. Extensive supporting material is included in the appendix. (AF)
