Institutional Self-Analysis and Long-Range Planning in a Small Liberal Arts College. Part I--Study Design.
Frame, Stanley M.
A plan has been adopted by Bethany Nazarene College to study practices and procedures at that college and at other institutions, and to suggest changes to be implemented over a 10-year period. The entire faculty and many students are involved in this 2-year study. A study committee identified the scope, sequence, and priorities of the study. This report, the first of 3, describes the design of the study. Topics to be considered are grouped under 7 areas: objectives and philosophy, instruction, students, faculty, physical facilities, business and finance, and administration. The final study design calls for: establishment of 7 committees to consider assigned study areas; establishment of a resources committee, maintenance of a steering committee; a sequential stair-step reporting deadline for the development of preliminary reports; the gearing of study activities to the academic year; and compilation and development of the final report. Appendices present complete listings of study topics, committee tasks, college and universities serving as a data reference group, and detailed flow charts of the study design. (Author/JS)
