Long Range Planning. University of Missouri.
Missouri Univ., Columbia.
This plan outlines the proposed development of the University of Missouri for the next 10 years. The discussion includes the general organization of the 4-campus University, its responsibilities, the roles to be filled by the individual campuses, and an assessment of the needs of the various disciplines and divisions as the University responds to constantly increasing demands. It aims primarily to provide guidelines within which each of the campuses and the University-wide administration can develop specific programs including detailed costing. This report represents the first step in an ongoing planning process that involves students, faculty and administrators. Each campus developed its own plan by the committee system. In addition, University-wide committees were appointed in each discipline to consider statewide problems and formulate plans in their particular areas. Reports from all of these participants were then condensed into a single document which was extensively reviewed by all contributors. Some of the major recommendations are: that the capabilities of the 4 campuses be fully integrated and coordinated so that the system can function as a single university; that the principal goals be the educational, social and cultural growth of the individual student at all academic levels; that the education offered be relevant to the times and to the state of Missouri; and that all qualified state residents have the opportunity to attend the University.
