Administrative Procedures to Graduate Education through University Extension.
Shields, Reed Livingston
Using interviews and a questionnaire, this study investigated administrative procedures used in graduate extension education by 60 members of the National University Extension Association (NUEA). Attention was given to program structure; residence requirements for off-campus graduate programs; counseling and guidance services; the reimbursement of the graduate faculty; procedures for course scheduling, faculty recruitment and orientation, and assignment of teaching loads; provision of textbook, library, and audiovisual services; and procedures used to gain approval for graduate courses at off-campus centers. The salient feature of graduate extension education seems to be the diverse character and behavior of NUEA institutions. Procedures and provisions appear to be determined to a large extent by the continuing education needs of the "professional public." Findings suggest that it might be well to sustain the diversity of these institutions so that each can best serve the large concentration of professional people who wish to keep up with the current "knowledge explosion."
