Practitioner papers and research papers on higher education planning and budgeting are presented. "Before the Roof Caves In: A Predictive Model for Physical Plant Renewal" by Frederick M. Biedenweg and Robert E. Hutson outlines a systematic approach that was used at Stanford University to predict the associated costs of physical plant maintenance over a period of years. "Academic Planning in the California State University and Colleges: The Aftermath of Proposition 13," by Sally K. Loyd describes the proposed and actual budgetary impacts of Proposition 13 on the California State University and Colleges and how the system responded to these impacts. In "Faculty Early Retirement: A Planning and Budgeting Issue in Higher Education," Barbara A. Mitchell outlines the steps taken in Oregon to determine faculty members' probabilities for retirement, the cost of alternative plans, and administrative, legal, and other concerns. "Policy-Impact Analysis: An Approach to Planning and Budgeting in Higher Education" by E. Raymond Hackett and James L. Morrison describes a four-stage model involving monitoring, forecasting, goal setting, and policy analysis and implementation. LaRue Tone Hosmer, in "Planning, Control and Motivation Systems: A Conceptual Framework," explains how planning, control, and motivation systems should not be considered separate entities in higher education.
