Making the Transition. Report to the 1975 Minnesota Legislature. Comprehensive Plan-Phase 4.
Minnesota Higher Education Coordinating Commission, St. Paul.
The Higher Education Coordinating Commission's Biennial report to the 1975 Minnesota Legislature attempts to identify the major trends and issues confronting postsecondary education in the mid-1970's and to recommend some actions the state can take in addressing them. The commission in this report is proposing several recommendations to the 1975 Minnesota Legislature designed to improve student access to postsecondary education, to improve the state's planning capabilities, to improve cooperation, and to improve the use of the state's postsecondary education resources. Highlights of the recommendations discussed include: (1) removal of the bonding limitation from the Minnesota State Student Loan Program; (2) authorization to negotiate reciprocal student aid agreements with state in which a reciprocity agreement with Minnesota is in effect; (3) recognition of legitimate public service activities as an integral part of faculty responsibility and concomitantly a serious factor in promotion and salary decision; (4) appropriation to the commission of $50,000 for assessing the potential and developing plans with respect to state policy and action, on utilization of television and other educational media for delivering postsecondary education to the larger population.
