New and Innovative Programs, 1973-1975. A Report to the Legislature Regarding Chapter 131 Washington Laws of 1973, 1st Extraordinary Session.
The progressively greater institutional commitment to the development and continuing support of new and innovative educational programs is demonstrated. Data were gathered from each institution (University of Washington, Washington State University, Western Washington State College, Central Washington State College, Eastern Washington State College, and the Evergreen State College), as well as the State Board for Community College Education, on their uncommon and non-traditional educational programs. The programs included those initiated by the 1971 appropriations bill (ESHB 151). A proviso was attached stating that 1/2 of 1 percent of the funds provided under the instructional budget for higher education institutions should be expended to develop new and innovative programs. With one exception, no general fund appropriations were specifically earmarked for new and innovative programs durring the 1973-75 biennium. Focus in this report is on stimulating interest in the cooperative development of these and similar programs, and toward recognizing the time, effort and financial resources expended by each of the institutions of higher education to develop, review, implement, and support innovative programs.
