The Current Status of Community College Organization, Control, and Support.
Hickman, Marmette; Lieske, Gustave R.
This paper, which presented a nation-wide picture of the organization, control, and support of community colleges, updated information gathered by a similar study contacted in 1967. Data were gathered from letters sent to the offices in each state that had been identified as responsible for junior colleges by the previous study. Conclusions based on comparisons of the 1966 and 1968 data included: the recent increase in the number of junior colleges may be slowing down; there has been a decrease in the percentage of colleges initiated by state legislators or the constituencies of junior college districts and an increase in the percentage of colleges started at the request of local sponsors or local governmental units; there has been an increase in the number of states with more than one agency responsible for coordinating community colleges; the percentage of junior colleges that were coordinated by the state board, the state department of education, or the university board of regents was significantly reduced; in general, states provided slightly more support for operating and capital costs in 1968 than in 1966; control of junior colleges has moved from school districts and counties to multi-county or other local control; the percentage of junior colleges that were state operated or were branches of a state college or university decreased; and, the percentage of state 2-year technical schools has increased.
