The Two-Year College System in Ohio: A Planning Report.
Ohio Board of Regents, Columbus.
This report was designed to aid ongoing development of statewide planning and coordination for Ohio's complex two-year college system. The mission of this system is defined in terms of four areas: Access, Program, Stewardship of Resources, and Institution and the Community. The system is dedicated to the concept of open education with minimal cost or obstacles to the public. Ohio has developed four separate two-year college systems in the last 12 years: community colleges, state general and technical colleges, technical institutes, and university branches. The Ohio Citizens' Task Force on Higher Education made no recommendations about revamping the system to overcome the complex governance problems, choosing rather to define the boundaries of each type of college. Since expansion in number of colleges has been curtailed, the major concern in planning is to equalize the availability of programs throughout the state. Special attention is to be given to those areas where unwarranted program duplication and unnecessary institutional competition exists. Appended is a list of technical associate degree programs available in Ohio and a discussion of the justification for inclusion of a program at any single college on the basis of demographic and manpower needs assessment for a community.
