The Tulsa Junior College: Report of a Study to Develop Background Data, Planning Standards and Criteria for the Establishment of the Tulsa Junior College.
Hobbs, Dan S.; Hayes, Larry K.
The 1968 legislature authorized the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education to establish a 2-year junior college for Tulsa County and environs. The Regents' staff began plans that included: a state bond issue ($4 million) to be matched by federal funds; studies of community population trends, socioeconomic trends, site needs, operating budget, and physical plant requirements; functions and purposes of the college; admission, retention, graduation, and accreditation standards; educational programs and degrees or other academic awards to be offered; fees; and timetable for construction, organization, operation, enrollment, and start of classes. The staff worked with national authorities, outside consultants, and public relations experts, and used a questionnaire to collect most of its data. The data and resulting plans are presented in detail. Recommendations include: (1) a comprehensive function for the new college; (2) adoption of broad educational programs and courses of study; (3) nationally prevalent educational standards; (4) conferring of selected degrees and certificates; (5) fees identical with those at other 2-year state colleges; (6) adoption by the Regents of the proposed 1970 operating budget; (7) adoption of the construction guide for the physical plant; (8) development of a multi-campus college with three or four sites; (9) selection of personnel and programs in time for 1970-71 operation; and (10) donation of local sites to the State as soon as possible.
