Survey of Educational Offerings and Academic Plans with a Consideration of Higher Cost Programs: A First Report.
California State Coordinating Council for Higher Education, Sacramento.
In the first section of this report, the Coordinating Council for Higher Education presents a preliminary response to a legislative resolution which directed the Council to identify and study high cost programs and facilities in public higher education. Concluding that high unit cost is related primarily to small class size, the Council indicates a need for close examination of present and planned academic programs in terms of demand; such scrutiny would ensure the effective utilization of funds available to higher education. The second section of the report presents results of the Council staff's first annual comprehensive review of current educational programs of 2 segments of higher education --the California State Colleges and the University of California. Some of the observations in this section point to several questions for which the Council and educational segments may wish to seek answers in the near future. In the summary and conclusions, a review by the Council of existing and new programs is considered. The Council hopes to play a greater role in assuring that the academic plans of California's higher education systems are complementary in their mutual goal of meeting the higher education needs of the state.
