The Development and Implementation of CAMPUS: A Computer-Based Planning and Budgeting Information System for Universities and Colleges.
Systems Research Group, Toronto (Ontario).
CAMPUS is composed of 4 basic elements. The central element is a computer-based simulation model that is designed to estimate the resource implications of alternative administrative and educational plans and policies. A planning, programming and budgeting system is used to integrate the simulation model into the formal planning and budgeting processes of the institution. A master planning system is used to interpret the long-range academic and administrative plans of the institution into their implications for physical planning. An integrated management and planning information system is used to support the 3 other elements of CAMPUS. This report discusses (1) the development of CAMPUS; (2) the adaptation of CAMPUS to health sciences educational planning, and other developments; (3) CONNECT/CAMPUS, a computer-based college management system; and (4) what the model can and cannot do in terms of general problems, finance, space planning, enrollment, academic planning, teaching methods, and staff planning. The report includes numerous charts and tables. (AF)
