Expanding Opportunity Through Sharing Faculty Resources.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA. Inst. for Higher Educational Opportunity.
The practice of utilizing faculty resources across institutional lines is not new. At the present time there is an increasing awareness of the opportunity for expanding the interinstitutional utilization of faculty between the historically black campuses and the historically white campuses that are located in proximity to each other. In the process of state planning to eliminate dualism in public higher education, the geographic proximity is often regarded as constituting a difficult problem calling for the review of institutional roles and responsibilities. On the other hand, their proximity offers an opportunity for providing, through cooperation and joint planning, a combined resource for serving the total community in its increasing efforts to serve all ethnic groups without discrimination. This report is a compilation of discussions with administrators and faculty from locations where steps to initiate joint planning have been taken. The materials from these discussions are presented under four headings: the potential benefits which may result from interinstitutional utilization of faculty resources; barriers to achieving cooperative programs; types of arrangements that may be developed between institutions; and suggestions for planning procedures.
