Private Junior Colleges: Problems and Solutions; Selected Proceedings of Two Special Workshops on Private Junior Colleges (Cumberland College, Lebanon, Tenn., Sept. 27-28, 1968; Montreat Anderson College, Montreat, N.C., Nov. 1-2, 1968).
American Association of Junior Colleges, Washington, DC. Program with Developing Institutions.
This monograph outlines the problems (and possible solutions) of private junior colleges, as discussed at two regional conferences in 1968. The two meetings were attended by 108 representatives from 50 colleges. Both stressed the importance of long-range development planning and its accompanying need for funds. Particular points covered were alumni and annual giving programs, capital-raising campaigns, effective approaches to foundations and corporations, government grants, deferred giving in the form of bequests, annuities, insurance, etc. Details on the methods of bestowing deferred gifts were given--useful in persuading the prospective donor of the benefits both to himself and to the college. Other speakers dealt with the advantages and special opportunities of private colleges and with the concept and practice of cooperative (work-study) education. Most participants, in evaluating the conferences, found them very valuable; the small remainder found them of considerable value. They also gave suggestions for future workshops. (HH)
