Laki korkeakoululaitoksen kehittamisesta 1967-81, No.228/6.4.1966; Asetus korkeakoululaitoksen kehittamisesta 1967-81, No.455/24.9.1966 (Act No.228/6.41966 and Decree No. 455/24.9.1966 on the Development of Universities and Institutes of Higher Education, 1967-81).
This document is an English-language abstract (Approximately 1,500 words) of Finnish legislation covering higher education between 1967 and 1981. The main aim of the act is to increase educational opportunities in Finnish higher education in the next few years. The number of those expected to take postgraduate studies by 1981 is 60,000. The buildings will be expanded and increased so that the available floor space will satisfy the needs of teaching, research and administration by the end of 1981. Provision is also made for proper equipment, collections, and libraries when the buildings are expanded. The number of teaching posts and offices and the amount of teaching by appointment will be increased so that there will be at least one full time instructor for every 12 students by 1981, in the humanities; the ratio will be even better in other fields. Minimum expansion goals are given for the years up to 1981. Recent publications on higher education in the future are referenced in the Act. (Author/GDB)
