Agenda for Renewal: A Forward Look for the Massachusetts State College System 1973-80. First Report of the Long Range Planning Committee to the Board of Trustees of State Colleges.
Massachusetts State Coll. System, Boston.
In charting the future for Massachusetts' public higher education, this agenda points to transfer access for 2-year college graduates and outreach programs for minority and disadvantaged students. The agenda seeks to move the 11 state colleges toward expanded community service and encourages them to cooperate in establishing special learning centers. Other major proposals of the agenda include: (1) A system of faculty evaluation that includes student participation. (2) Credit for students' practical experience gained in off-campus projects. (3) Reducing teaching duties for faculty members who initiate projects of scholarly merit, research, independent study, or of service to the campus or the community. (4) Integrating the specialized career programs with the liberal arts curriculum. (5) A Reevaluation of the role of teacher education in an era when employment opportunities are declining. Appendices include the policy on graduate education; the Massachusetts Transfer Compact; guidelines for new degree programs; and procedures for reduction in faculty teaching load. (Author/PG)
