The Future of Murdoch University: Report of the Committee of Inquiry into the Future of Murdoch University.
Western Australia Post Secondary Education Commission, Nedlands.
An inquiry concerning the future of Murdoch University, Western Australia, is considered, as are the resulting recommendations. After a description of the university's establishment, growth, and present circumstances, postsecondary education in Western Australia and the demand for higher education are considered. A number of adjustments to the pattern of activities in higher education in Western Australia are recommended that are designed to encourage the growth of Murdoch University to about the year 2000. Proposals for new departments at Murdoch University in the areas of medicine, law, commerce, optometry, peace and conflict studies, philosophy, and student accommodation are examined as are low cost proposals concerning the following issues: limitations on enrollments at other institutions, postgraduate student load, the rationalization of activities, cooperative teaching arrangements, the establishment of institutes for teaching and research, the joint use of facilities, and publicity for Murdoch University's activities. Extracts from submission received from higher education institutions regarding the present inquiry and background reports are appended. (SW)
