The Campus Resources of Higher Education in the United States of America: A Taxonomy of Types and A Geographical Distribution.
Irwin, Judith T., Comp.
This document presents a classification of the campus resources of higher education institutions in the United States. After the foreword, the institutions are divided into 5 categories: doctoral-granting universities; comprehensive colleges and universities; general baccalaureate colleges; 2-year colleges, and separate specialized professional schools. The doctoral-granting universities are divided into 3 groups, depending on number of Ph.D. awards granted and amount of federal government support for academic research. The comprehensive colleges and universities are institutions that may have doctoral programs and that offer master's degrees, and have an enrollment of more than 3,500 students. General baccalaureate colleges may award master's degrees and have enrollments under 3,500. Two-year colleges include community colleges, technical institutes, university and college branches, and other campuses offering less than a baccalaureate program. Separate specialized professional schools include Bible colleges and religious seminaries, medical schools, schools of engineering and technology, schools of business, schools of music, art, and design, schools of law and teachers colleges and all others.
