Transition or Transformation? Annual Report of the Executive Director of the Commission on Higher Education, 1983-84.
Commission on Higher Education, Philadelphia, PA. Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
The annual report of the Executive Director of the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools is presented. The problem of a lack of commitment to equity in the recruitment of minority students and the employment of minority faculty and staff by many institutions is noted. It is recommended that colleges pay serious attention to the decline in numbers of 18-22 year olds and be careful about expansion into graduate programs, adult and continuing education on- and off-campus, and the development of computer science programs. In their reports for 1983-1984, evaluation teams have been critical about advising, counseling, and placement. Consideration is also given to: the rising number of part-time faculty; the continued politicization of boards of trustees; policies for systematically collecting important documents and records; theological education, state relations, Council on Postsecondary Accreditation; study abroad; and policy review. Work performed by and for the Commission on Higher Education and developments in accreditation are also summarized. (SW)
