The Demand for a Second Two-Year University. A Report to the Florida International University.
Grigg, Charles M.; And Others
Because of the rapid growth of the State of Florida during the 60's, educational decisionmakers have decided that a 3-stage public university system is best suited to fulfill Florida's educational needs. The first and third levels are already well established. The first level is comprised of 2-year community colleges and the third is comprised of those institutions offering graduate programs through the Ph.D. The second level is comprised of those institutions that offer only junior and senior year programs and limited graduate work. Such an institution is Florida International University (FIU), which will open its doors in the fall of 1972. From its inception, FIU has envisioned itself as a metropolitan-commuter university specifically designed to serve the needs of numerous community college graduates who want to continue their college educations. This document provides data concerning the potential students at FIU, including information about socioeconomic status of the families and educational background. It is evident from the data that the demand for an institution of this type exists, and that the planned expansion of the University to other areas of the state probably will be feasible. (HS)
