88 p. 

A Citizens Advisory Committee--a blue ribbon commission--reviewed graduate education in the Oregon State System of Higher Education, focusing on the priorities, needs, and resources of the state. With respect to employment and research needs of Oregon and the nation as justification for graduate programs in Oregon, conclusions include the following: graduate programs in the state system are helping to meet the research and employment needs of Oregon and the nation and federal funding of state system graduate programs has greatly contributed to the development and quality of programs needed in Oregon. Advanced degree programs have been selectively developed to capitalize upon the special strengths of the several institutions and to meet state needs. For example, graduate programs in teacher education have been developed in the three state colleges and the three universities. Basic assumptions that guide the Oregon State Board of Higher Education in its decisions regarding graduate programs and criteria for evaluating proposed new graduate programs are identified. Attention is also directed to: access by in-state and out-of-state residents to Oregon graduate programs, including those in private colleges; overlay and duplication of graduate study in state institutions; comparative costs of graduate progrms; and plans to adjust graduate programs to declining enrollments and resources. Appendices include a "Budget Note on Graduate Education" and information on: program duplication; actual and projected public school teaching staff in Oregon; agencies active in forecasting doctoral supply/demand projections; resident Oregon labor force; and graduate degrees awarded by state and private Oregon colleges.
