State Level Coordination of Community Colleges: Academic Affairs.
Wattenbarger, James L.; Christofoli, Luther B.
This report focuses on the increasing number of problems clustered around state coordination of academic programs in community colleges. State directors and their staffs are becoming concerned with preventing duplication and ineffectiveness and with positive long-range planning. Data are based on questionnaires mailed to state agencies responsible for community colleges in the 50 states. Those 44 states who responded report a variety of approaches to the coordination of community college affairs. They range from formalized and multiple approaches to ad-hoc committees and informal arrangements. No conclusions can be drawn between the size of a state system and the degree of academic coordination. (CA)
