Operating Manual for Two-Year Campus Programs.
Ohio Board of Regents, Columbus.
Guidelines and accompanying forms are provided in this operations manual designed as a guide for the management and development of the instructional units at the member institutions of Ohio's two-year college system. The manual first presents the mission statement of the two-year colleges, defines the various types of colleges in the system, and presents general recommendations regarding two-year college programs, enrollments, facilities, and services. Course work and requirements are then described for programs leading to the associate degree in each of five instructional areas: arts and sciences, applied business and science, individualized study, technical education, and labor studies. Procedures are then outlined to be used in the proposal of new associate degree programs, technical majors, and one-year programs; relevant forms are also provided. The report then offers a taxonomy of officially approved titles for technical programs in the areas of business, engineering, health, agriculture, natural resources, and public services. Guidelines are then presented for awarding academic credit, program review, off-campus instruction, and vocational follow-up surveys of technical education graduates. Appended to the manual is an inventory of the technical programs offered at each of Ohio's two-year colleges. (JP)
