Journal Cover
From Volume 2 Number 6 | December 1973

In its August 1973 issue, Planning for Higher Education reported on the plans of Rio Grande College, a small, private, liberal arts institution in southeastern Ohio, to operate a new community college under contract with the four-county Rio Grande Community College District. The story suggested that, as far as could be determined, the Rio Grande plan was a first. Not so, according to Kenneth W. Iversen, president of Union College, a private , two-year institution that since 1969 has been operating a community college under contract with the Union County Agency for Higher Education in New Jersey. Details of the Union operation are outlined in this article.
