Nevada 2000: Future Directions for Nevada's Colleges and Universities.
Nevada Univ. System, Reno.
The self-declared mission for each campus of the University of Nevada system and future plans are described, along with projections regarding the future population and economic changes, resources for the future, and future student enrollment and academic programs. Goals of the overall state system and priorities for the 1980s and 1990s are also outlined. Projected economic, political, and social conditions that will affect higher education include the following: the state's population will continue to grow and enrollment levels will increase; Nevada's universities will continue to receive students who enroll at the freshman level as well as those who transfer from community colleges; the community colleges will continue to enroll, through open admissions, students of all ages; the enrollment mix in the future will contain larger proportions of lifelong learners and part-time students; in general, student demand for doctoral programs is not expected to increase significantly in the immediate future; there will be increased demand for programs delivered through telecommunications directly to people in homes and businesses; and no major changes in Nevada's economy are expected.
