McKinney, T. Harry
Higher Education in the States, v4 n7 p185-204 1974
In late February 1974 a decision was made by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare to implement the State commissions under Section 1202 of the Education Amendments of 1972 on certification by the governors that their State commissions qualified under the act. Three options for meeting criteria set forth in Section 1202 were: (1) creation of a new commission that would meet the criteria; (2) designation of an existing State agency or State commission that already meets the criteria; and (3) augmenting an existing State agency or State commission to meet the criteria. Responses from every State are presented, including the desire to establish; option chosen; HEA programs assigned; commission name, address, telephone number, and principal staff officer; representation on the commission for general public, public 4-year institutions, public community and junior colleges, public vocational schools, private nonprofit institutions, proprietary institutions, and others.
