Regionalism and State University of New York, 1972-76.
The State University of New York comprises four formal coordinating areas for the development of regional contacts and interinstitutional and regional cooperation. The four coordinating areas have been operating since 1972 and the differing patterns of cooperation that have emerged are outlined as are the formal activities of each area. Only one of the four areas has been reasonably active in promoting regionalism with regular meetings, active groups in art and cultural affairs, instructional resources, Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research, library, summer session, and alumni. A survey was conducted in the fall of 1975 of all state operated campuses and community colleges on the topic of regionalism. The usable responses indicated several general conclusions, which are analyzed: (1) some form of interinstitutional dialog is generally endorsed; (2) coordinating areas are preferred over interinstitutional cooperation, which is preferred over consortial contacts; (3) formal agreements for cooperation are differentiated from informal ones; (4) the extent of involvement with regional activities produces differentiated views about regional activities; (5) differences among types of colleges are not as strong as might have been expected; and (6) regionalism is generally supported throughout the state system, but not to the point where campuses are willing to devote resources that might otherwise be spent on campus activities.
