Guidelines for Review of Proposed Campuses and Off-Campus Centers. A Revision of the Commission's 1982 Guidelines and Procedures for Review of New Campuses and Off-Campus Centers. Commission Report 90-9.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report updates the reviewing guidelines of the California State Postsecondary Education Commission for proposals for new public university or college campuses (issued in 1982) in order to make them more appropriate to current needs. Four major changes are added from the 1982 version: (1) a request to all three public segments of higher education in California that all proposals for new campuses be prepared in the context of a statewide plan that is made available to the Commission for review and comment; (2) a request that the segments inform the Commission of their plans for new campuses before the site selection process, so as to give the Commission the opportunity to make suggestions about whether the process should move forward before the fact of land acquisition; (3) a request that all final proposals for new campuses and off-campus centers include a completed environmental impact report; and (4) a request that each segment include in its final proposal plans information on how the campus or center will meet the State's policy goals of access, quality, and educational equity, as well as some preliminary plans about the academic or programmatic character of the campus or center. The review process guidelines are provided. (GLR)
