A Question of Stewardship. A Study of the Federal Role in Higher Continuing Education.
National Advisory Council on Extension and Continuing Education, Washington, DC.
The role of the Federal Government in Continuing Higher education is studied. The study contained three stages: (1) An identification was made and a description written of all those Federal programs that have a community service, extension or continuing education component that involves institutions of higher education; (2) A series of case studies was prepared on particular Federal programs which represented major areas of Federal support; and (3) Drawing on facts and information developed in the first two stages, a broad assessment was made of the Federal effort in extension, continuing education, and community service. The following activities are recommended: (1) To keep current the information assembled on the programs already identified and to record new program activities, (2) To establish more systematic liaison with other administrators of Office of Education programs, and (3) To study State plans, Title I projects, continuing education needs of women and prisoners, effects of federal programs on intra-and inter-university relationships, and quality control and consumer protection in higher continuing education.
