An Exploratory Study of the Physical Facilities Requirements of Institutions of Higher Learning. Final Report.
Allen, E. B.; And Others
A series of mathematical models is given for translating a college or university's educational philosophy and its operating levels into physical facility requirements. The models exhibit the required number of units of instructional facilities, by function and capacity; the number of professional faculty and graduate teaching assistants; the units of research laboratories; the office facilities; the library with its user and active storage areas; the housing and dining facilities; and the parking facilities. All of these are expressed in units of the facilities so that the models are more widely applicable to various types of educational institutions. Each of the operations contained within a submodel is first explained in words and is then expressed mathematically. (FS)
