Report [of the] Committee on Tertiary Education.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) of a Western Australian report on higher education in that state. The Committee recommended that a "Tertiary Education Commission" be established as an on-going body, to advise the Government on developments over the whole field of tertiary education and to encourage coordination between all the autnonmous institutions involved. Through its funding procedures, the Australian Federal Government has established a tripartite pattern in higher education to differentiate between university, teacher, and advanced education. The Department of Education has been the best administrator of higher education. However, teacher education should be removed from its control. The University of Western Australia should not grow beyond a maximum of 8,000 full time students, and 2,000 part time students on its present campus. Planning should begin as soon as possible for a university college to open after 1972. The trend is away from small institutions devoted to training in single technologies. The report includes statistics on enrollments, graduates, associates, and projections for future enrollment at the University. Farming and mining need expansion in Western Australian advanced education. (Author/GDB)
