Ray, Robert F.
As a sequel to a 1971-72 study, this report for 1975-76 provides an updated inventory of the programs and policies of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC) universities through which adult part-time students may earn credit and bachelor's or master's degrees, notes significant changes since the first report, and offers suggestions for future development. The eleven midwestern universities that belong to CIC are Chicago, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Ohio State, Purdue, and Wisconsin.
