Goals for Oklahoma Higher Education. Self-Study of Higher Education in Oklahoma; Report 8.
Coffelt, John J.; And Others
This report contains the findings, conclusions and recommendations that emerged from a study of "Functions and Goals of Oklahoma Higher Education." Many individuals and groups were involved in the process which culminated in this report, including a 600-member citizens' group, a special 140-member citizens' advisory committee, several hundred college faculty members, selected students from Oklahoma colleges and universities, presidents of all Oklahoma colleges, and alumni from the various institutions. Chapter 1 presents the report's scope, procedures, limitations and organization. Chapter 2 gives an historical account of the creation of Oklahoma's colleges and universities and provides a summary description of their original functions. Chapter 3 discusses current and suggests some future functions of the institutions. Chapter 4 sets forth the goals toward which the colleges and universities should work in the next 10-20 years. Chapter 5 summarizes the conclusions and presents recommendations. Appendices contain tabulated responses to a questionnaire asking: who should go to college; what kinds of post-high school opportunities should the state provide; who should bear the costs; what should the institutions do to support industrial development, help solve social problems, and promote cultural development in Oklahoma.
