Master Plan for Higher Education: Opportunity in a Time of Change.
Ohio Board of Regents, Columbus.
The Ohio Board of Regents' master plan for higher education is presented. After providing an overview of Ohio's higher education system, the following factors that should be considered in statewide planning are addressed: the economy of Ohio, the availability of student financial aid, changing enrollment patterns, changes in federal and state policies, the changing public perception of the value of college and university study, and the increasing competition for students. A social compact is proposed for collaboration between public and private colleges and universities, and business, industrial, and governmental leaders. Recommendations for enacting the social compact are offered for the areas of instruction, public service, and research. Access to college programs is discussed with reference to college preparation, undergraduate programs, graduate programs, and noncredit continuing education programs. Geographic access, access for physically impaired students, and financial access to higher education are also considered. In addition, attention is directed to: reform of subsidy support, capital improvements planning and budgeting, clarifying institutional objectives, program review, and service patterns of state universities and two-year colleges.
