University Planning for the Problems of Growth.
Paltridge, James Gilbert
In Part I of this report, case studies of the universities of California, Michigan, Illinois and Miami afford a comparison of patterns of administrative planning and organization as they have developed in response to changing social expectations and the problems of growth. These institutions are representative of those that have made a responsible commitment to expansion so that they might accommodate a rapidly increasing enrollment. The extent of the growth problem at each of the selected institutions, and the states' and universities' plans for development are discussed. The institutions' plans are presented for the reorganization of their administrative operations, for improvement of space utilization and teaching efficiency, for the adoption of electronic instructional media, and for changes in the curriculum. Part II contains a general discussion of patterns of planning, the junior college movement, campus building plans, and various methods of enhancing efficiency in the teaching process with reference to specific practices of the 4 universities.
