Abstract or Summary
  • Purpose of the Study Today one important facet of private education is facing a severe struggle for existance. The private junior college is decreasing in number and enrollment while its public counterpart is experiencing a growth and development that can be described as phenomenal. Much material has been written which gives the criteria for the establishment of public community colleges, but this criteria is not completely appropriate for the private junior college. The purpose of this study is to establish a model for determining the feasibility of establishing a private junior college. Procedures Research procedures for this study primarily consisted of a review of the literature, sending letters to pertinent individuals and organizations, developing and sending a questionnaire to private junior colleges, and analyzing and tabulating the results of the questionnaire. The questionnaire was sent to the presidents of 243 private junior colleges throughout the United States. One hundred thirty-three of the administrators returned a total of 112 usable questionnaires which were tabulated and used in this study. Findings A survey of pertinent literature and a study of the 112 returned questionnaires shows the need for a study such as this. An examination of the literature reveals several criteria which must be satisfied if it is to be considered feasible to establish a new private junior college. These major criteria are all included in the following seven categories: (1) philosophy, (2) general criteria, (3) students, (4) staff, (5) curriculum, (6) finance, and (7) facilities. Conclusions and Recommendations The final conclusion of the thesis is that while there can be no guarantee of success, adequate preparations including the use of a feasibility study will result in a greater percentage of new private junior colleges being successful. Recommendations for further studies designed to be of assistance to private junior colleges are included in the final chapter.
