Less-Than-Baccalaureate Level Technical Education Programs in Higher Education.
Sexton, William E.; Spencer, Albert
Based on a national survey of 4-year state colleges and universities, this study presents information concerning the involvement of such institutions in less-than-baccalaureate level technical education. Data for the study were gathered from 329 institutions through the use of an information form and pertained to both off-campus and on-campus programs. Analysis of the data indicates that: (1) Institutions of higher education are involved to a considerable extent in less-than-baccalaureate technical programs, and their involvement increased sharply during the period 1967-71, (2) The less-than-baccalaureate level programs offered in the participating institutions were mainly 2-year programs as are those programs currently in the planning stage, and (3) The most significant trend in the development of less-than-baccalaureate level technical programs from 1967-71 was the very sharp increase in both the number of programs offered and the student enrollment in these programs.
