1975 Consortium Directory.
Patterson, Lewis D.
This seventh edition of the directory lists those cooperative arrangements in higher education which were reported by their chief administrative officers to satisfy five criteria. Each consortium is a voluntary formal organization with three or more member institutions; has multi-academic programs, is administered by at least one full-time professional; and has a required annual contribution or other tangible evidence of long-term commitment of member institutions. Two trends are identified: the movement to state regionalization where it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish between voluntary and statutory systems; and a broadening of the base of participation to include the full range of the postsecondary community and related community/regional agencies in cooperative arrangements. The directory includes background and program descriptions for each consortium. It is indexed as to academic, administrative, community, and student activities. (LBH)
