|Title: ||College Baccalaureate Degrees and the Diversification Of Baccalaureate Production in Ontario|
|Authors: ||Skolnik, Michael L.|
|Keywords: ||baccalaureate degrees|
|Issue Date: ||5-Jun-2012|
|Abstract: ||Although the predominant approach in North America for a long time was for colleges to provide only the first two years of baccalaureate programs, in the 1990s this started to change, as colleges in some states and provinces were given the authority to award baccalaureate degrees on their own. British Columbia and Alberta were among the first places in North America where colleges awarded baccalaureate degrees. Ontario colleges were given the authority to award baccalaureate degrees in 2000, and since then so also have colleges in Manitoba, Prince Edward Island, and the Yukon. South of the border, colleges in 18 states have been authorized to award baccalaureate degrees.
This paper considers the many reasons why governments in so many jurisdictions have enabled and encouraged colleges to award baccalaureate degrees. An examination of financial, access and productive rationales are considered in the Ontario context where diversification is a contentious policy.|
