Strengthening Junior Colleges: A Study of Bilateral Cooperative Arrangements Funded under Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965.
Kelly, John Terence
This dissertation examines bilateral cooperative arrangements, between developing junior colleges and 4-year institutions, funded by Title III of the 1965 Higher Education Act. The study attempts to identify the dimensions of this type of arrangement, and to determine the relationship between these programs and the intent and purpose of Title III. A literature review, examination of applications for funds, and results of a questionnaire administered to the coordinators at the junior colleges yielded results in the following areas: (1) institutional characteristics--most of the junior colleges examined in this study were weak; (2) developmental projects--the funding process emphasized curriculum development the most and administrative improvement the least; (3) interinstitutional cooperation--this varied from strong meaningful relationships to practically non-existent ones, perhaps because emphasis was in program development rather than cooperative arrangement; (4) planning, implementation, and evaluation--leadership and direction were derived almost exclusively from the junior colleges; and (5) implications for Title III--the bilateral cooperation concept appeared to be incidental, but there was evident satisfaction and significant impact in assisting junior college development.
