A collection of 79 program ideas demonstrates creative approaches to academic programs and administrative concerns. As part of an annual event sponsored by the Ameridan Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU), the ideas were nominated by institutions in the 1985 competition for the G.

For each of the 79 institutions, the name of the program and the contact person are identified, and a program description is provided. Specific topics of the innovations include: providing access to education and services for the deaf and hearing-impaired, a computer center for the visually impaired, a one-day-a-week college, efforts to improve the enrollment and retention of mature women in four-year colleges, efforts to improve attendance and persistence of minority students, an interdisciplinary humanities program, the core curriculum, senior seminars program, developmental education program, a center for international programs, promoting interest in foreign language study, career and life planning, an academic assistance and resource center, a computer literacy fair, automated data reporting systems, faculty retraining, business and education partnerships, and college school cooperation.
