South Carolina Commission on Higher Education, Columbia.
A review of the South Carolina master plan for higher education is presented. The following issues are addressed: coordination and governance, roles and missions of state colleges and universities, enrollment projections, program review, prerequisites for freshman admission, quality incentives, desegregation of state institutions, finances, and facilities. Information is provided on the following existing programs which were reviewed: mathematics, physical sciences, engineering, biological sciences, health and medical education, business, foreign languages, and associate degree programs. Progress toward meeting the state's plan to enhance programs at South Carolina State College and Denmark Technical College, traditionally black institutions, is discussed, along with desegregation of student enrollment, faculty and staff, and governing boards. State appropriations for 1974, 1980, 1983 are compared, as are state appropriations per full-time equivalent student in the 14 Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) states. Additional data cover: a comparison of faculty salary averages in the SREB states, tuition and fees for resident students, and student financial awards by type of programs. Appended materials included a proposed revision of the desegregation plan, and the 1984-1985 appropriation formula. (SW)
