A Historical Analysis of Non Credit Adult Education Program Development at the University of Georgia, 1804-1968.
Bonniwell, Hilton Thomas
This study traces non credit adult activities at the University of Georgia from its beginning in 1801 to 1968. The specific purpose was to determine whether events which compose the major developments merely reflected national happenings or whether the local developments influenced national happenings. The study identifies documents, organizational patterns, persons, policies, and influence groups instrumental in the development of non credit adult education services at the University. The origin and development of the three categories of services currently available (agricultural extension, continuing education, and institutes) and their contribution to improved programs for the State's citizenry was studied. It was found that expanded programs and conceptions of adult education have resulted in the development of agricultural extension and continuing education, and that the availability of institutional funds, public demand for services, and leadership of individuals were, in that order, the most influential factors in the development of the adult education program at the University.
