Master Plan for Higher Education in Connecticut 1974-1979. Biennial Supplement, 1976. Document No. 76-F-55(e)-001.
Connecticut Commission for Higher Education, Hartford.
In this Supplement to Connecticut's Master Plan for Higher Education, emphasis is on 30 new recommendations proposed by three resource groups to extend educational opportunities in areas not covered in depth in the Master Plan. The three areas of concern and highlights of the recommendations relating to them are: (1) Proprietary schools should be represented on the Commission for Higher Education and included in postsecondary planning, should become eligible to contract with the commission to provide programs and services, and their students should receive transfer credit for accredited programs. (2) Services for the physically disabled (i.e., blind, deaf, and mobility disabled) should be expanded, physical barriers should be removed, safety measures should be implemented, and a clearinghouse of information on accessible programs established. (3) For continuing education and community services, inequities in charges to part-time students should be removed, qualified faculty should be given equal status with regular faculty, and supporting services comparable to those available to full-time students should be provided.
