The Role of Regional Campus in Indiana, Especially Indiana University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne.
Crismore, Avon
The role of the regional campus in Indiana (specifically the Fort Wayne campus of Indiana University and Purdue University) is considered, based on verbatim accounts of various educators. In addition, an overview of the history and development of the two universities' separate Fort Wayne campuses and the subsequent joint campus established in 1964 is presented in a 1978 case study by Francis T. Borkowski entitled, "A House Divided: Indiana University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne." According to Borkowski, it seemed logical in the early 1960's to place both regional campuses on one campus to share facilities. Each university remained distinct but the duplication of services and overlapping programs were decreased. Verbatim accounts concerning the perceived role of the regional campus are presented by five Fort Wayne faculty members and administrators (Frank Kenworthy, Jack Ulmer, Arthur Keller, Jeannette Clausen, and George Dillon), one Indiana Vocational Technical College dean (Merle Donica), and two Ball State University administrators (Joseph Rawlings and John Craddock). Based on a review of the accounts, it is concluded that more explicit direction is needed for future planning by regional campuses in serving the academic, occupational, and personal needs of local citizens.
