The Virginia Plan for Higher Education.
Virginia State Council of Higher Education, Richmond.
The Virginia State Council of Higher Education composed this master plan for the development of public higher education in the state for the decade 1967-77. Part I discusses the factors influencing the Plan: the college-age population growth, college attendance rate, loss of students through migration, under-educated adults, increasing urbanization, increased technology, and high student costs. Five broad goals for Virginia higher education are offered. Part II presents the basic components of the Plan. These are titled: 1) state planning as a joint venture for all higher education; 2) a pattern for orderly growth in enrollments; 3) no additional 4-year public institutions; 4) institutional roles and functions consistent with state and national needs; 5) a statewide system of comprehensive community colleges; 6) coordinated opportunities for continuing education; 7) mobilization of research and technological resources; 8) a reasonable level of student tuition charges; 9) sufficient student financial assistance; 10) state financial support for quality higher education; and 11) continuing leadership in the development of statewide policies for higher education.
