Inter-University Cooperation with Special Reference to the Universities of Ontario.
Good, H. M.
As education becomes more and more specialized, the need for diversity within academic programs becomes greater. The solution to this uniformity, especially in the United States, has been that of the formation of consortia or other cooperative agreements between and among different colleges and universities. The province of Ontario, Canada, has many problems that may be solved by the creation of cooperative programs. In Ontario there is a system of extramural and continuing education which is competitive, essentially anarchic, and ill-adapted to the job of educating its yough. In its present organization there is little likelihood that the provincial system can fulfill its responsibilities of today, much less the vastly increased responsibilities it should assume tomorrow. Because there are dangers in centralization and separation from the other universities, a consortium is proposed rather than an open university. (Author/HS)
