Georgia Postsecondary Education: An Assessment of Achievement of Statewide Goals and Objectives. Assessment Report on Diversity and Geographic Availability of Postsecondary Programs and Institutions (Objectives 2a and 2c).
Governor's Committee on Postsecondary Education, Atlanta, GA.
The diversity and geographic availability of postsecondary institutions and programs in 1980-1981 were assessed in Georgia. The diversity of Georgia's colleges was based on analysis of institutional control, level, and type. To assess objectives, seven types of colleges were defined, and the state was divided into eight substate regions. For the examination of college programs, a distinction was made between regular credit programs and special and noncredit programs. The Classification of Instructional Programs, which was developed by the National Center for Education Statistics, was also employed, along with four sources of regular credit program information. In addition, institutions were surveyed to inventory special or noncredit programs. It was found that 340 postsecondary institutions were operating in Georgia during 1980-1981. The state seemed to have a diverse and comprehensive set of institutions and all substate regions were served by most sectors. However, some important high technology programs were not offered in the state. Appendices include listings of colleges by division and substate region; results of the program inventory (i.e., programs by type of college and degrees offered), information on supply and demand in Georgia substate regions; and an institutional questionnaire.
