Residential College Concept: Campus Organizational Patterns for Quality with Quantity. Bulletin of the School of Education, Indiana University, v41 n3.
Shaffer, Robert H.; Ferber, Daniel A.
An overview is presented of the residential college concept based on the integration of the living unit into a closer relationship with the basic academic and intellectual life of the institution. The history of the association of student housing with the formal academic program is traced, and theoretical bases for its implementation discussed. Programs presently in operation are cited as examples of desirable experimentation and innovation; emphasis is given to administrative considerations involved in these programs. A bibliography is included. (FS)
