State Univ. of New York, Saratoga Springs. Empire State Coll.
The bulletin of Empire State College, New York's non-residential college, describes the organization of the decentralized college, its educational philosophy and innovative educational program. The College's plan calls for a network of regional learning centers located within reasonable commuting distance for most New York state residents. Students and their Mentors work out individualized programs of study that are developed through a series of learning contracts. The contracts last for about 3 months. The student's work is evaluated and a new contract is developed. The amount of time needed for award of a degree depends upon the student's previous educational background and experience. (CS)
