An Assessment and Projection of the Resources and Needs of Independent Higher Education in Connecticut. Volume I and Volume II.
Connecticut Commission for Higher Education, Hartford.; Little (Arthur D.), Inc., Cambridge, MA.
The expansion and growth of higher education is not just a question of merely adding facilities or teachers to accommodate the ever-growing number of students. It has been estimated that the total body of human knowledge doubles every 15 years; this fact creates the problem of developing and perfecting new approaches to education that keep pace with that knowledge. In light of these and other factors, this report makes recommendations to the Commission for Higher Education in Connecticut to alleviate the burden of future problems. Included are recommendations for the creation of a management information system in Connecticut, the formation of consortia among institutions in the State, and an increase of financial assistance to students enrolled in the independent colleges and universities in the State. Appendices include a bibliography, data forms, an interview guide, tables, and the recommended modification of Public Act No. 627. (HS)
