Legislative Commission's Subcommittee on the community College Division of the University of Nevada System. Report to the Legislative Commission.
Nevada State Legislature, Carson City. Legislative Commission
This legislative report complies with Nevada's Assembly Concurrent Resolution 44 which mandated the study of the Community College Division of the University of Nevada System to determine: (1) if the Community College Division should be separated from the University system; (2) the future needs of Nevada residents for community colleges; (3) whether the present resources of community colleges were being used to greatest advantage; and (4) whether community college facilities should be expanded. The inquiry, which consisted of campus site visits and five days of meetings at which regents, administrators, and students provided testimony, revealed that while the legal basis existed to statutorily separate the two systems, such a radical organizational move would be premature; that there was a need for the reinstitution of the central office of president of the Community College Division; that the community college system had benefited from strong community support; that transfer problems between two- and four-year institutions had been alleviated by the University System Articulation Board; and that the community college's original goals were still viable. The need for additional college capital facilities was not demonstrated. The report also provides a legislative history of the community college system in Nevada. (MB)
