The Extended University: A Progress Report.
California Univ., Berkeley. Board of Regents.
This document presents a progress report of the Extended University of the University of California. The Extended University exists to test and gain experience with modified approaches to higher education. It offers degree programs to those who are qualified to engage in university studies, but who are now effectively denied access because of work obligations, finances, location, home responsibilities, or other impediments to full-time study. The basic objectives of the Extended University may be simplified as follows: (1) to provide selected experimental degree programs for part-time students; (2) to experiment with off-campus programs, new approaches to instruction, alternative approaches to admission, campus residency, and advanced standing; (3) to design new curricula specifically for part-time students; and (4) to develop the ability to provide these and other similar programs on a cost-effective basis. Appendices include graphs and tables related to the text. (Author/PG)
