Revised Academic Plan 1969-1975. University of California, Berkeley.
California Univ., Berkeley.
This plan for the Berkeley campus of the University of California is an attempt to formulate an educational blueprint for the development of the campus schools, colleges, academic departments and research units during the 1970's. In contrast to previous academic plans which encompassed a decade of continuous expansion and were concerned with quantitative aspects of planning, the present revision deals with the transition from a period of extensive growth to one of stability and is concerned with improving the quality of instruction and scholarship. The plan is organized into 4 major sections: 1) historical circumstances; 2) the educational policies and priorities which are its framework; 3) the revised plan itself including discussion of each department; and 4) the operational procedures required for its implementation. Within this structure, the plan deals with: the academic organization of the campus, the educational development of the campus units; new directions in scholarship and teaching; liberal and professional education; graduate and undergraduate programs; post-doctoral responsibilities; flexibility among the faculties; research; physical facilities; and establishing limits on enrollment and admissions. Tables, appendices, and a summary of recommendations are included. (DS)
