Program Classification Structure. Second Edition. Technical Report 106.
Collier, Douglas J.
This is the second edition of the 1972 publication of the same title. The Program Classification Structure is a set of categories and related definitions that allows its users to examine the operations of a postsecondary education institution as they relate to the accomplishment of that institution's objectives. It is a logical framework for arraying information in a hierarchical disaggregation of programs. The structure suggests that nine major programs are carried out by postsecondary institutions in pursuit of their objectives: instruction, research, public service, academic support, student services, institutional administration, physical plant operation, student financial support, and independent operations. This publication explains the structure and acts as a guide for its application. (MSE)
