Planning College Policy for the Critical Decade Ahead.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
This volume contains the addresses and case studies presented at a colloquium on "Admissions Policy--A Case Study Approach to Planning for 1965." Contained in the first section entitled "What the college should do," the 7 addresses discuss the planning of admissions policy within the context of the total institutional setting. The major problem areas impinging upon and essential to careful planning are identified and analyzed. The second section contains case studies of 4 fictitious colleges--"Country College,""Urban University,""Suburban College," and "Benton University," a university located within a city, but seeking national representation within its student body. The essential features that must be known about each type of institution in order to work toward the establishment of an appropriate admissions policy are delineated. Each of the case studies is followed by a program of improvement recommended by a "workshop committee" of college and secondary school officials attending the colloquium. (DS)
