The Long Range Academic Planning Picture for Sangamon State University.
Sangamon State Univ., Springfield, IL.
In shaping the future of a university, a host of factors enter the planning picture. Some of these are historic and relate to tradition, others relate to institutional leadership and the pattern of governance, and others to the needs of the region and the community which the institution must serve. Some factors can be regressive such as the pressures exerted by closed professional groups for "illiberal education and overrestrictive credentialing." Institutions are also asked to respond to social needs; their response must be thoughtful and scholarly. With these factors in mind, the following issues must be considered: enrollment projections, emphasis on graduate study, the kinds of degrees that will be granted, the nature of the professional curricula, and, eventually, the granting of professional degrees and doctoral study.
