The Administration of Correspondence-Study Departments of Universities and Colleges. Bulletin, 1919, No. 56
Klein, Arthur J.
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
This bulletin aims to describe the administrative practice and experience of the correspondence-study departments of the universities of the United States. Correspondence-study secretaries and extension division directors may find this experience and practice of use in meeting their own problems and in evolving their own administrative systems. Local conditions and resources are so different, personal preferences are so various, and the field for administrative development is so large, that few judgments have been expressed upon the practice here described. An attempt has been made to collect in systematic order the typical practices and methods of correspondence departments, rather than to attempt a statistical statement or tabulation of the extent of any of these practices and methods. The methods of particular institutions have been set down as typical, therefore, without mention of other institutions which follow the same method. (Contains 1 footnote.)
