This study was organized by the Iowa Association of Private Colleges and Universities, the State Board of Public Instruction, and the State Board of Regents. The purpose of this study was to reassess each of the Iowan junior colleges’ and Iowan universities’ demographics and how to improve the overall quality of the universities in the state of Iowa.
The Board created eight different sub-goals for which separate committees were then assigned:
To estimate the size and characteristics of post high school students. (Committee A)
To determine the educational needs of post high school students and how to best accommodate them. (Committee B)
To determine the areas of research and service which can be used most effectively and efficiently by post high school educational institutions. (Committee C)
How to distribute the programs, research and service of post high school. education among the present and future institutions. (Committee D)
To determine the facilities needed to accommodate future students and programs. (Committee E)
To determine the future staff needs of post high school educational institutions. (Committee F)
To discover the best coordination and governance of education beyond high school. (Committee G)
To find methods of financing post high school education. (Committee H)
Upon completion of the study, various higher education institutions in Iowa made some changes to their curricula and guiding philosophies. Junior colleges in the state emphasized the integrity of the university and its development and academic freedom. Iowa State University began to offer more majors in scientific fields. The State College of Iowa began to implement more non-teaching programs due to increased enrollment in these areas.
