A Development Program for Metropolitan Junior College, Kansas City. Volume Two: Guidelines for Developing Metropolitan Junior College.
Little (Arthur D.), Inc., San Francisco, CA.
This four-part report provides guidelines and recommendations for the expansion of Metropolitan Junior College (MJC). Part I begins with projections of national social and technological changes anticipated through the year 2000, cites currently changing labor force requirements, and examines the role of education in a technological era. Next, the spectrum of middle manpower occupations (i.e., jobs with a balanced cognitive-manipulative content) is explored. Following the presentation of a taxonomy of higher education institutions, the emergence, role, purposes, and levels of instruction of the community college are considered. Part II provides enrollment projections for MJC, considering national trends in college attendance, characteristics of junior college students, college enrollment trends in Missouri, and 1961-1968 enrollment at Metropolitan Junior College. This section also includes a detailed explanation of the projections' framework. MJC's educational program is discussed in Part III, which focuses on basic principles in developing community college programs; program needs in the college-parallel, liberal arts, and academic program and in occupational programs. Part III also forecasts probable enrollment in occupational programs and suggests improvements in student personnel services. Part IV presents a detail curriculum planning process which involves campus specialization and differentiation of function and provides a sequence and schedule for the development process. (KL)
