A Model for Private-Public Cooperation in Higher Education.
Bach, Bert C.; Givens, Paul R.
The success of the cooperative program of Millikin University and the Community College of Decatur is often cited by Illinois educators as a model of private-public institutional cooperation. The purpose of this paper is to describe the planning, problems, and implementation of this cooperative program. For the academic year 1972-73, Millikin agreed to offer the Community College of Decatur (CCD) certain courses on a contractual basis and also to permit coenrollment of CCD students in specified Millikin lower division courses on a space-available basis. For all courses offered, the institutions agreed that (1) CCD would have responsibility for registration, course material, scheduling, student evaluations, submission of grades, and disciplinary matters; (2) CCD would have the right to cancel any course if the total enrollment fell below ten students; and (3) Millikin would have the right to select faculty for the courses. During the three quarters of the 1972-73 academic year, Millikin offered on contract 35 class sections that represented 13 separate academic courses. In all, 574 CCD students received instruction in those courses. There is every indication that the 1973-74 winter and spring quarter offerings will show a continuation of this trend. (Author/PG)
