Perspectives on Program Duplication
Morrison, Gail M.
South Carolina Commission on Higher Education
Concerns about program duplication in higher education are often reminiscent of Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's now famous remark about pornography: "I know it when I see it." The problem with that reaction is that, at least on its surface, this response seems intuitive and emotional, to say nothing of subjective and personal. The fact is that the addition of new programs at public institutions in South Carolina is the result of an extensive process that is reasoned and analytical. This process encompasses a critical analysis of barriers and opportunities, market assessment, and estimates of costs and benefits to the students, the institution, and the state by the institutions as well as by the Commission on Higher Education. This paper discusses the issues concerning program duplication in higher education. (Contains 1 footnote.)
