Annual Report of the Statewide Extended Campus, 1998-1999: A Report on the Colorado Statewide Extended Studies Program, Off-Campus State-Funded Programs, and Out-of-State (and Out-of-Country) Programs.
Colorado Commission on Higher Education, Denver.
This report summarizes the activities of the three components of Colorado's statewide extended campus during the 1998-99 academic year. The first, and largest, section focuses on the extended studies program, which has been Colorado's primary vehicle for the delivery of off-campus instruction since 1972. The report provides an overview of the program, course and enrollment statistics, the program's mission, the legislative intent in creating the program, its primary features, methods of delivering instruction, and enrollment trends. Tables and figures provide data on current enrollments and enrollment trends and institutional expenditures. The second section describes off-campus state-funded programs, which are complete degree or certificate programs that have been proposed by institutions through their governing boards and approved by the State Commission. Financial and program data are provided for the five institutions that delivered programs in 1998-99. The final section reports on the 13 institutions participating in the out-of-state and out-of-country programs, and includes an overview, a summary of state policy regarding out-of-state public higher education, and a list of courses available from the State Board of Agriculture, the Colorado School of Mines, several Colorado state colleges, the University of Colorado, the University of Northern Colorado, and three state community colleges.
