A Preliminary Investigation into an Integrated Approach to the Planning of Higher Educational Facilities. Final Report.
Goodfriend, Harvey J; Mosher, Robert
Findings are presented of a preliminary investigation into an integrated approach to the planning of higher education facilities. Problems confronting college and university planners are defined; factors affecting current conditions isolated; and opportunities for seeking solutions suggested. In this first step of a two-phase program, resources available to planners are surveyed, and the process of facilities planning is reviewed. A bibliography of recent literature in the areas of community colleges, educational technology and the new media, facilities planning, higher education, and urban colleges, is presented. Also included is a list of organizations, agencies, and other sources of information. Observations and findings are offered regarding the planning of fifteen new community colleges. In addition, results of an experiment in which these observations and findings were tested by simulating the planning of a hypothetical urban college are presented. Also included is a summary outline of the second phase of the project. (FS)
