The Laws Relating to Higher Education in the Fifty States: January 1965 - December 1967.
Wattenbarger, James L.; Martorna, S. V.
A state official from each of the 50 states was asked to provide information on all of the state's higher education legislation passed during the period of January 1965 - December 1967. A summary of each state's legislation during these years is included in this topical paper. Certain patterns in establishing higher education programs emerge as a result of this study. Some of these trends, which the authors list, include the observations that the community junior college, in terms of legislation, is recognized as a separate entity in the field of higher education; that legislative approval of the establishment of new institutions is becoming standard procedure; that many states have state-level coordinating agencies for their institutions of higher education; that support of scholarship funds is becoming a point of concern in many states; and that several states have legislated separate vocational/technical schools.
