Rio Grande: Ohio's 'Piggyback' College. Planning for Higher Education, Vol. 2 No. 4: 4/4 August 1973.
Morisseau, James J.
Some private liberal arts colleges across the nation face an increasingly uncertain future as costs continue to rise and competition from expanding public institutions intensifies. Meanwhile, there is pressure-witness the recommendations of the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education-to establish 2-year community colleges in areas not now served by such institutions. A solution to both problems may have been found in Ohio, where the newly formed Rio Grande Community College District proposes to contract with Rio Grande College, a private 4-year college, to operate the community college program. If the plans are approved, the four-county community college district stands to avoid the heavy capital expenditures normally involved in setting up a community college and Rio Grande College gains an assured future.
