Utah's Master Plan for Higher Education. A Summary Report.
Utah State Coordinating Council of Higher Education, Salt Lake City.
This summary of a master plan for higher education in Utah explains why formulation of such a plan was necessary and how it came to be developed. If adopted by the state legislature, it is intended to guide decision making in higher education and to implement needed programs. The summary discusses the assumptions upon which the plan is based, particularly that of responsibility to the individual student. The means of creating a system of higher education, rather than a collection of institutions, are described with reference to the roles of both public and private universities and colleges. Recommendations are made to enhance the teaching, research and public service functions of the state's universities. The lack of centralized direction and leadership can be remedied by increasing the professional staff concerned with state problems and planning, and by providing the Coordinating Council with sufficient authority to deal with many issues in the areas of governance, planning and finance.
