Inventory of Continuing Education Activities in Pennsylvania Institutions of Higher Learning for the Academic Year 1969-1970. Final Report.
Harrison, Paul C., Jr.; Lindsay, Carl A.
In a questionnaire survey of 152 colleges and universities throughout the state, the Bureau of Vocational, Technical, and Continuing Education of the Pennsylvania Department of Education sought to obtain detailed, current data on educational opportunities available to adults during 1969-1970, and to formulate these data into a substantive basis for effective and coordinated program development. After a telephone followup, 141 institutions (93%) responded. Ninety-one (65%) of these institutions indicated that they conducted continuing education (CE) programs. About 402,000 registrations were reported--roughly 216,000 in degree credit work, 40,000 in nondegree credit courses, 40,000 in noncredit courses, and 106,000 in conferences, workshops, and institutes. These registrations were accumulated in approximately 13,000 separate course offerings. Data were also collected regarding the financing, staffing, and community involvement of the reported programs; and analyses were performed by type of institution, approximate CE expenditures, and subject matter categories.
