The purpose of this study is to provide in readily accessible, compact form information concerning the junior colleges as they now exist; to record some of the important changes that have taken place in the status of these institutions since their creation; and to furnish data on each of the junior colleges that will be helpful to students who are selecting a 2-year college and who may or may not plan further work in higher education. For convenience, the study is arranged in two parts. General considerations and observations about the junior colleges are collected and discussed under part I, in an effort to prepare a background for the more detailed analysis in part II. In this section material is gathered together to answer such questions as: What is a junior college? What are publicly controlled junior colleges? What are privately controlled junior colleges? What former junior colleges have closed, merged, or have increased their offerings? What other institutions might be included in a junior-college study? What universities have created junior-college divisions with a dean in charge? To assist in answering some of these questions, data have been borrowed from part II. In part II, information is detailed for individual institutions and summarized by States, sections, and types of institutions. The data were obtained through a brief survey made during the fall of 1934 by the Office of Education, and concern in part establishment, control, student enrollments, graduates, and expenses for each junior college. A list of selected bibliography is included. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 5 tables and 1 chart.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
