Five Year Comprehensive Plan. Summary Planning Document.
Tennessee State Board of Regents, Nashville.
This report is intended to be the vehicle through which the total results of a two-year planning effort by institutional personnel and Tennessee state board of regents staff are summarized and synthesized. By itself, this report provides little detail about the individual institutions; but, combined with the planning reports of the individual institutions, the set comprises the five-year comprehensive plan of the state university and community college system. Contents of this report include a brief outline of the development and implementation of the planning process; a description of national, regional, and state employment prospects for college graduates in various fields through the middle 1980's, used as a context for college planning; data on programs, enrollments, degrees conferred, and student characteristics in universities and community collegs; manpower, support service, and facilities needs; a summary of the impact of projected funding on program, staffing, services, supplies, equipment, and book acquisitions for 1980-81 through 1983-84 (three possible levels of funding are assessed); distribution of funds among functional and budget categories for 1979-80 through 1983-84; overall system goals and objectives; implementation of the comprehensive five-year plan; and appendices including state board data, summary mission statements of the institutions, statistical data, and system planning assumptions and guidelines. In most sections, data on universities and community colleges are provided separately. (MSE)
