Less-Than-Baccalaureate Level Technical Education Program in Four-Year Public Colleges and Universities.
Eastern Kentucky Univ., Richmond.
Four-year state colleges and universities belonging to the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) and the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges (NASULGC) participated in a national survey used to gather information concerning the involvement of such institutions in less-than-baccalaureate level technical education. Data for the study were collected from the presidents of each of 429 institutions through the use of information forms pertaining to both off-campus and on-campus programs. Analysis of the data indicated that (1) member institutions of AASCU and NASULGC are involved to a considerable extent in less-than-baccalaureate technical programs, and their involvement increased sharply during the period 1967-71 and again by 1975, (2) the less-than-baccalaureate programs offered in the participating institutions were mainly 2-year programs as are those programs currently in the planning stage, and (3) the most significant trend in the development of less-than-baccalaureate level technical programs continues to be the very sharp increase in both the number of programs offered and the student enrollment in these programs. Fourteen supplementary tables are included. (TA)
