Rural Junior College Development Consortium: A Cooperative Venture of Junior Colleges in Alabama and Mississippi. Progress Report/1970-1973.
Alabama Univ., University. Inst. of Higher Education Research and Services.
The Rural Junior College Development Consortium was formed, with the assistance of Title III, to help the six participating rural junior colleges improve the delivery of educational services to low-income students and the rural community. The six institutions are Cullman College, Northeast Alabama State Junior College, Snead State Junior College, and Southern Union State Junior College in Alabama and Wood Junior College in Mississippi. Efforts have been made to improve institutional research, programs for low-income and marginally prepared students, community services, and occupational programs. Monthly consortium meetings have been held on a variety of topics. Campus visits and tours have been conducted, and faculty and administrators have been exchanged for meetings and workshops. Several interinstitutional projects have been or are being conducted. Descriptions are provided of achievements resulting from the cooperative arrangement in each of the participating institutions. Appended is a Consortium resolution to the effect that Alabama teachers should be allowed to take freshman and sophomore courses for certification at any regionally accredited institution in the State rather than just in senior colleges and universities.
