Planning and Future-Study: Board of Governors' 1984 Background Discussions.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.
The result of a "Futures" planning project undertaken by the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges (BGCCC), this report presents discussions of important future trends and their implications for California's community colleges; the community college capability to meet changing educational needs; and possible policy implications and future options. Following introductory material on the Board's planning and future-study project, section I describes the role of planning in the Board's basic agenda for 1984. Sections II through IV contain texts from presentations at the March 1984 Board meeting. Harold Hodgkinson's analysis of important national demographic and socioeconomic trends is followed by an overview of the California situation by Bob Arnold and a discussion of the way local colleges examine such trends and their implications for planning by Bob DeHart. Section V reviews the April Board meeting, where Nancy Conrath and Tom Stevens from the Los Angeles Community College District discussed factors that are important to the planning of a large, urban multi-college district. Appendices include an overview of types of futurists and their methods, background papers on demographics, charts for discussion on strategic planning, and a background paper on planning and future-study prepared for the BGCCC.
