Off-Campus Graduate Education: A Policy Statement.
Council of Graduate Schools in the U.S., Washington, DC.
Graduate courses are increasingly being offered in a wide variety of non-traditional campus settings including industrial plants, military bases, shopping malls, and off-campus centers established by universities mainly for the purpose of providing clasroom instruction. This booklet provides guidelines for institutions considering such programs. The first section reviews the current status of off-campus graduate education, discusses variations of the concept of off-campus graduate education, and defines several related terms. Issues considered in other sections include: the role of the graduate dean; responsibility of colleges/universities to the community in providing off-campus programs; off-campus versus on-campus programs; identification of qualified and motivated faculty resources to teach off campus; and financial issues involved in offering off-campus training. Academic and administrative guidelines for implementing off-campus graduate programs are provided. (LPT)
