This report presents data and recommendations for the development of Colorado's system of higher education. It deals primarily with the public institutions. Chapter 1 assesses the needs for higher education in the state with regard to enrollment projections, distribution of the population, availability of extension courses, and the number of students from economically and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. Chapter 2 examines the size and planned growth of each state institution. Chapter 3 discusses the purposes, programs and students of community colleges, state colleges, and the university system. Chapter 4 examines higher education in the Denver metropolitan area, and chapter 5 explores the issues of coordination, planning and governance. Tables in the appendix include data on off-campus credit extension courses, 1968-69 enrollments, and Fall 1968 Headcount enrollments in the public institutions . The Community College of Denver, the Metropolitan State College, and the Denver Center of the University of Colorado also define their roles. (AF)
