The two basic purposes of this study were: (1) to determine the type of statewide planning done in states with relatively long experience in this activity, and (2) to analyze the significance of statewide planning on the operation and development of different colleges and universities within the state. Chapter I presents the conceptual framework for the study. Chapter II discusses some notable historical events in the development of higher education in the U.S. Chapters III through VI present detailed information on planning and its importance for and impact on institutions of higher education in California, Florida, Illinois, and New York. Chapter VII discusses statewide planning and private higher education. In Chapter VIII a comparative analysis is made of the different types of statewide planning and major findings are reported. Chapter IX discusses problems in responsibility and authority. The methodology of the study is presented in the appendix. An extensive bibliography is included. (AF)
