A Study of Title III of the Higher Education Act: The Developing Institutions Program. Final Report.
Hodgkinson, Harold L.; Schenkel, Walter
This study of Title III of the Higher Education Act develops a profile of characteristics of developing institutions, makes in-depth case studies of a selected sample of institutions that have received Title III funds, describes the impact of Title III monies on campus between 1965-66 and 1970-71, and develops indicators of institutional vitality that may be used in determining an institution's eligibility for program funding under Title III. A questionnaire was developed to examine general data about the institution and the use of Title III funds on campus. Case studies also provided information based on 2-day site visits to each institution. Results of the study are categorized into: a profile of a little-known sector of American higher education; some indicators of institutional validity; total number of grants awarded and institutional judgments of "most successful" programs; an analysis of case study data; and case studies and appendices. Case studies cover the Community Junior College of Kansas City, Kansas; Mount Saint Mary College; and Findlay College. The appendices include the questionnaire and interview agenda. (MJM)
