Master Plan for Texas Higher Education 1990.
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Austin.
This 5-year plan for Texas higher education, designed to present a "road-map" for all participants in Texas higher education to use in their fulfillment of the higher education mission as established by the Texas Charter for Public Higher Education, is organized around six principles established by the charter. Following an overview on Texas higher education, particularly as it compares to the 10 most populous states, a definition, discussion and list of goals are provided for each of the following principles: (1) quality (college preparation, college-level skills, undergraduate programs, faculty and their salaries, program assessment, changing technologies, and training and retraining workers); (2) access (minority issues, financial aid, and transfer policies); (3) diversity (role and mission, independent colleges and universities, diversity at individual institutions and student needs); (4) funding (formula funding, revenue appropriations, funding levels, incentive and initiative funding and tuition and financial aid, grants and contracts and future requirements); (5) management (essentials, tools, administrative demands, personnel, facilities, deferred maintenance, and new demands); (6) leadership (vision and cooperation needed from legislators, faculty, administration). Appendix A lists members of the Master Plan Advisory Committee. Appendix B is a 22-item bibliography. Attached also is a booklet titled "Board Action Plan 1991-92". (JB)
