Maryland Statewide Plan for Postsecondary Education. Second Annual Review.
Maryland State Board for Higher Education, Annapolis.
The second annual status report on the implementation of the Maryland statewide plan for postsecondary education and on additional issues for action is presented. The following areas are considered: enrollments; programs; finance; facilities; faculty, libraries, and computer services; implementation of role and mission actions; and new planning initiatives. The new planning initiatives concern higher education in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area, financing community colleges, administrative salaries at public four-year institutions, and financial auxiliary enterprise facilities. The plan identifies general segmental and institutional missions for public institutions. Indicators that define various components of institutional mission, such as predictive indices for admission and attrition, are assessed, and five-year plans for academic program development are included to further delineate campus missions. Information about missions, enrollments, programs, and the other areas is provided for individual colleges. Among the program concerns are the following: increasing access to part-time and evening graduate programs at the University of Maryland, providing programs to meet the needs of students on federal installations, providing programs designed to attract high ability students, and procedures and stipulations for developing new programs. Additional areas that are addressed include: private support and federal financial aid programs, faculty and administrative salaries, analysis of program costs, and facilities management. (SW)
