Colleges and universities during the past three decades have endeavored to extend their services to an ever increasing number of persons beyond their walls. The history of this movement is most interesting and seems to have kept pace with improved means of transportation and communication. University extension began about the same time that the automobile made its appearance. The purpose of this bulletin is to give information as to what helps may be had through extension methods from institutions of higher learning in all parts of this country. The data were secured by means of a questionnaire sent to 1,220 colleges, universities, and normal schools, and from a study of their catalogues and reports. More than 800 institutions replied to the questionnaire, and 443 of these reported that they gave some extension service. Following a Letter of Transmittal and an Introduction, the following are included in this bulletin: (1) Extension activities in educational institutions (tables); (2) Correspondence study courses; (3) Enrollment of extension students, 1928-29, reported by colleges and universities (tables); (4) Class work outside of institutions; (5) Radio; (6) Institutes, conferences, or short courses; (7) Library service; (8) Public lectures; (9) Home reading courses; (10) Visual instruction; (11) Publications educational in nature; (12) Parent-teacher associations and other club service; (13) Community drama; (14) Promotion of debates; (15) Miscellaneous extension work; and (16) Tendencies. (Contains 2 tables and 1 footnote.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
