Graduate Planning in Ontario Universities (A Brief to be Presented to OCUA in June 1976). Report 76-8.
Council of Ontario Universities, Toronto.
The Ontario Council on Graduate Studies' appraisal of graduate planning in Ontario universities reveals that the graduate enterprise is not excessively large and is not growing in an uncontrolled manner and that doctoral graduates are finding jobs in their fields. The easing of the growth of graduate enrollments, the need to react positively to the current economic realities, and the opportunity to adjust enrollments without financial penalty combine to provide an opportunity for a careful evaluation of future directions and for a reexamination of the goals and operation of the planning and appraisal process. The report summarizes the current situation and makes detailed recommendations for planning for graduate studies and research as well as future mechanisms and their effect on planning. (JMF)
