Planning for a New State Institution of Higher Learning in Dade County Florida.
Florida State Board of Regents, Tallahassee.
In 1965 the Florida State Legislature authorized the establishment of a new state university in Dade County. This report outlines various projections and preliminary plans for the institution. The 3 planning phases for the institution include first, the selection of a site for the first campus and construction of facilities; second, the development of small university centers of various types; and third, the planning and construction of additional campuses. The expected enrollment in 1972, the proposed opening date, and the projected enrollment gains for several years thereafter are the basic data used in planning. Estimates of enrollment potential are based on the following assumptions: 1) the institution will be an urban university; 2) it will initially offer upper-division courses and some graduate programs; 3) most of the students will be commuters; 4) initial undergraduate course offerings will be in arts and sciences, education, business, technology, and health-related professions; and 5) there will be a wide offering of evening division courses. Proposed future programs that will more specifically meet the needs of the Dade County area include urban studies, inter-American studies, hotel administration, social welfare, law enforcement, and optometry. Tables provide data on degree programs of other institutions of higher education in Florida, state demographic and economic data, and projected enrollment, area population, staff, and facilities of the new institution in Dade County.
