Report of the Committee on Junior (Community) College Curriculum 1971-72.
American Accounting Association, New York, NY.
The Committee on Junior (Community) College Curriculum was formed to suggest means of cooperation and communication between faculties of 2-year colleges and those of institutions to which their students commonly transfer. It was also charged with encouraging new approaches of instruction in accounting and other related subjects, as well as considering employment for graduates of 2-year colleges. Topics covered by the 8-member committee were the role of the community college in higher education, accounting in the community college, and articulation problems concerning community and senior colleges. Committee findings included: (1) there are sufficient employment opportunities for graduates of 2-year accounting curricula to justify such programs; (2) no specific accounting curriculum was recommended since flexibility in meeting local needs should be maintained; (3) cooperation between 2- and 4-year schools should include counseling transfer students to take only one year of accounting; (4) there needs to be continuous communication between 2- and 4-year schools so that their programs and objectives are mutually understood; and (5) the American Accounting Association, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business need to work to bring together teachers from both types of schools. A bibliography is included to encourage and facilitate further research. (RN)
