A Study of the State University and Community College System of Tennessee, 1972-80. [Draft.]
Tennessee State Board of Regents, Nashville.
This is the first statewide study of the development of education beyond the high school within the State University and Community College System of Tennessee, established in July 1972. It reflects the operation of the System from 1972-1975 and projections for a 5-year period through 1980. The materials used to develop this report were drawn from separate self-studies furnished for this purpose by the six universities and 10 community colleges of the System. The study addresses the current state of affairs in both the traditional and nontraditional collegiate forms of higher education and offers guidelines for revising and strengthening higher education in the System. Information considered includes the following: enrollment trends, student characteristics (age, full-time or part-time status), faculty resources, faculty characteristics (rank, training, tenure), faculty responsibilities, educational opportunities provided by the System, current research activities, public service and continuing education programs, physical facilities, and financial needs assessed according to three variables--number of students, an inflation factor, and program development.
