Guidelines for Research on Statewide Systems of Higher Education.
Berdahl, Robert O.
The first step in studying a State educational coordinating agency should be to establish the facts concerning both its enabling legislation and its present status, including whether it is formal or voluntary, consolidated, and a responsibility of the State Department of education. The study should also analyse the agency's historical development and determine how the pattern of State politics affected the attitudes of the governors and legislators toward higher education. To understand the present functioning of the coordinating system, an analysis is required of the multiple interrelationships among three major constituencies: Higher education, State government, and the coordinating board. Primary issues include allocation of State fiscal resources, budgetary review, policy formation and planning, State and Federal aid programs, and the role of the coordinating agency as an intermediary between higher education and government. Assessment of future trends is necessary to determine coordination patterns most appropriate to a State sy"tem of higher education at different periods in its development. (JK)
