Strengthening Higher Education in Connecticut.
Connecticut State General Assembly, Hartford. Legislative Program Review and Investigations Committee.
During the 1976 session of the General Assembly, a stalemate between the House of Representatives, which passed the Board of Regents bill, and the Senate, which adopted an amendment for a commission to study the structure of higher education, resulted in a conference committee suggestion that the Legislative Program Review and Investigations Committee study the matter during the interim. Key objectives of the study were to develop workable methods to improve budgeting, planning, coordination, and resource utilization in higher education. Focus was on the central authority. An overview of the system is presented along with the assessment of current problems. Extensive time and effort were devoted to the creation of a new central authority for higher education policy, planning, and budget-making. Specific recommendations are presented for the operation of this new Board of Higher Education. Alternatives for organizing the constituent units are also presented. (LBH)
