1968 Publication: Kansas Junior Colleges' 50th Anniversary

Posted on July 25, 2018 at 8:39 AM by Bill Sowers


In 1968 the Kansas State Department of Public Instruction celebrated the state's community college system with a publication, "The Kansas Junior College: 50 Years of Progress."

In the foreword to this 190 page document the authors state that, "The purpose of this publication is to provide written, statistical, graphical and pictorial evidence of the sound and steady growth of the public junior college in Kansas. For those interested in research, the appendixes provide a 20-year statistical summary of junior colleges, both public and private in terms of enrollment, finance, faculty and a listing of vocational-technical programs offered in junior colleges since 1946."
