Accreditation of Two-Year Colleges in the South.
Day, Robert W.; Mellinger, Barry L.
The evolution of the two-year college in the South and resultant influences on accreditation are discussed in an attempt to describe the historical relationship between the Commission on Colleges and this evolution. The booklet is divided into six chapters: (1) "An Overview of the Development of Two-Year Colleges in the South; (2) The Emerging Two-Year College in the South and Initial Accrediting Activities (1912-1928); (3) A Period of Transition--New Accrediting Procedures for Two-Year Colleges in the South (1928-1962); (4) Expansion and Diversification of Two-Year Colleges in the South (1962-1972); (5) A Current Profile of Two-Year Colleges in the South; and (6) The Two-Year College in the South: Emerging Trends and Implications for Change in Higher Education. The sixth chapter is a response by two members of the Commission on Colleges to the presentation of this material to the 1972 annual meeting of the South Association of Colleges and Schools. (KM)
