Criteria for the Establishment of New Public Colleges and Universities. Report 6.
Florida State Postsecondary Education Commission, Tallahassee.
This report outlines the criteria for establishment of new public colleges and universities in Florida between May 1991 and the early part of the 21st Century; the plan emanated from legislative concern about Florida's ability to meet projected future demands for highly educated workers. Issues addressed include goals for degrees granted and number enrolled on a state-wide basis, and minimum size goals for new institutions. A three-phrase planning model for new institutions includes a threshold analysis (participation rate, population base, geographic access), feasibility guidelines (demonstration of need, impact on other systems, cost-effectiveness, policy considerations), and an implementation plan (threshold analysis, feasibility study, implementation plans). An appendix consisting of the complete consultant's report for state-level planning of new colleges and universities in Florida makes up the bulk of this document. A copy of the brief 1990 Legislative Proviso is also appended. (JB)
