Agricultural Programs in California Public Higher Education.
Gries, George A.
This document presents an overview of and recommendations concerning the agricultural programs in California public higher education. Some of the recommendations are: (1) all new programs, options, and courses should be screened on a regular basis to determine if collaborative action would not lead to improvement; (2) ways and means of increasing cooperative efforts between and among institutions should be explored; (3) colleges of agriculture must join with other elements of the institution in both instructional and research programs; (4) there should be no extension of formal programs in agriculture to additional campuses of the University or State College System; (5) no new option should be approved without close examination of the possibility of collaborative effort with other units of the institution; (6) thoughtful curricular reform is needed; (7) courses in judging livestock and other agricultural commodities should be discontinued as credit offerings; and (8) no more than 4 semester hours in supervised work projects should be allowed for credit toward the Associate of Arts degree or for transfer and no more than 8 semester hours of this type should be allowed toward the baccalaureate. Other recommendations are made concerning the specific campuses. (HS)
