Comprehensive Information Systems for Statewide Planning in Higher Education.
Boyd, Joseph D.; And Others
Higher education will be analyzed in greater depth in the future than at any time in the past. Comprehensive information systems will grow and be used for planning, budgeting, and coordination of all postsecondary education supported by public funds. As these information systems develop, educators and legislators must use the information to make the necessary value judgments that will strengthen higher education and the society it serves. This document presents 4 papers given at a conference of the ACT that deal with the statewide planning for the future of higher education. The papers are: "Long-Range Planning in a State System of Higher Education" by Arthur D. Browne; "The Uses of Management Information Systems in State Systems of Higher Education" by Ben Lawrence; "The Role of the State Scholarship Program in the State System of Higher Education" by Joseph D. Boyd; and "Comprehensive Information Systems for Statewide Planning in Higher Education: Some Prospects and Critical Concerns" by Fred F. Harcleroad. (HS)
