1975 Status Report on the Continuing Education Unit. Survey Summary.
Glancy, Keith E.
Questionnaires on the Continuing Education Unit (CEU) were sent to representatives of all the member institutions of the National University Extension Association (NUEA) and the Association for Continuing Higher Education (ACHE). From the 359 questionnaires distributed, responses were received from 216 institutions or branch campuses, a 60% return. Of these, 160 were from universities, 38 from colleges, and the remaining 18 from community colleges. Responses came from institutions in 47 states and the District of Columbia. Findings revealed that of those responding, 101, or 47%, already had adopted the CEU. The author assumes that over half of the institutions will be using the CEU during the 1975-76 academic year. Of those institutions located within the states included in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, 86% have adopted the CEU. The summary of this report indicates that a steady increase in the adoption and use of the CEU by the member institutions of NUEA and ACHE can be readily documented by the responses to the questionnaire. While a projection of this trend would lead to the conclusion that nearly all institutions would be using the CEU within another five years, it must be noted that the institutions surveyed are those having significant continuing education or evening class programs and having full-time continuing education administrators. Thirty-four selected references on the CEU are included, and institutions awarding CEUs are listed. (WL)
