Summary

The purpose of this study was to select and analyze certain factors that identify 2-year colleges as being more closely related to either secondary education or higher education. Factors analyzed included: (1) educational terminology; (2) the influence of early 2-year colleges; (3) the changes in self-concept, program, faculty, and students the junior college has undergone as the result of changes in pattern of control and organization since 1940; (4) standards used on regional and professional levels in evaluating the 2-year college; (5) pertinent legislation and legal regulations; (6) curriculums offered; and (7) articulation, or the manner in which legislators and educators deal with intercommunication among the various levels of education. This analysis was prefaced by a review of pertinent literature that revealed historical and contemporary views of the status of the junior college in the educational hierarchy. It was concluded that the 2-year college is presently much closer in status and identity to the senior colleges and universities than to the secondary schools. The junior college is, however, an ever-changing educational innovation that selectively characterizes certain aspects of both secondary and higher education but, maintaining a still greater degree of its own character, it represents a new and unique institution of higher education.
