Improvement of Opportunity: Alternative Approaches for the Delivery of Higher Education Services.
Connecticut Commission for Higher Education, Hartford.
This document presents the findings and recommendations of a resource group in charge of improvement of educational opportunity in Connecticut for the master plan for higher education in Connecticut. Due to the major finding of a need for more flexibility of degree offerings and requirements within the state, the group makes the following recommendations: (1) A comprehensive program for earning undergraduate degrees and college credit by nontraditional methods should be developed and coordinated on a state-wide basis including credit by examination, credit by transfer, credit for off-campus study, and credit for experience. (2) Priority for new opportunities in higher education should go to persons currently denied access especially veterans, minorities, low-income groups, shift workers, housewives, the handicapped, the elderly, and those seeking additional career education. (3) Immediate attention should go to expanding the utilization of existing and new systems for delivery of higher education services through radio, television, press, computer, and other technological resources.
