Independent Higher Education. Technical Group Report No. 6.
Montana Commission on Post-Secondary Education, Helena.
Montana's three private colleges in a long and continuous tradition play a truly significant role in higher education of the state, just as private or independent colleges have done in the rest of the nation. It is imperative for the nation and the state to recognize and appreciate the kind of contribution that independent higher education provides. This study concerns itself with three degree-granting independent institutions: Carroll College of Helena, College of Great Falls, and Rocky Mountain College of Billings. In the 1973-74 school year these three enrolled 2,614 of 19,420 undergraduate students attending four-year higher education institutions in the state. This constitutes 11.8 percent of the total. The purpose of this report is fourfold: (1) to offer an assessment of the role and contributions of these private colleges relating to higher education in Montana, (2) to provide for the study of historical and current data on enrollment and graduates, (3) to provide financing information, and (4) to look at present and future trends within the institutions to meet newer and higher standards of educational effectiveness. Appendixes contain statistical data to accompany the text. (Author/PG)
