Phase II Objectives and Time Schedule of the WICHE Management Information Systems Program. June, 1969 - May, 1972.
Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, Boulder, CO.
In 1968, the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) initiated a 5-year management information systems project to encourage systematic data collection and utilization for the effective allocation of resources at institutions of higher education. This report describes Phase II of the project, a developmental phase scheduled for the period between June, 1969 and May, 1972, during which management information systems will be developed and tested at selected agencies and institutions of higher education. A primary objective is to develop models of instructional function, resource requirement prediction and student flow, and to develop glossaries of compatible data elements and procedures for producing and comparing cost data from several institutions. Other primary objectives involve the development of management information systems in cooperation with regional and national organizations, and the sharing of project results with agencies in states not participating in the program. The report also contains a project time schedule which outlines primary and supplementary program and management objectives. (WM)
