Review of Prior Studies of Post-Secondary Education in Montana. Staff Report No. 1.
Montana Commission on Post-Secondary Education, Helena.
This report is a synopsis of past studies of postsecondary education in Montana. Its purpose is to provide a brief sketch of each past study and to fulfill House Bill No. 578's (1973) mandate to the commission to assess the evidence and resulting recommendations made in prior studies relating to postsecondary education in Montana. The report summarizes, where applicable, the methodology, findings, recommendations, and impact of each study. Nineteen studies were conducted during the 30-year period 1942-1972. This does not include various studies and reports on federal law or special audit reports conducted by state agencies. The major focus of the studies reviewed governance and administration, but the scope ranges from functional responsibilities of the components of postsecondary education through such subjects as community college planning, vocational-technical education, and resource utilization. Perhaps as important as any of the individual studies, this report demonstrates the continuing interest and concern of the state of Montana in postsecondary education. Appendixes include recommendations made by prior studies. (Author)
