The Process of Campus Planning in Florida's Community Junior Colleges.
Williams, Fred H.
A look at significant aspects of the campus planning process suggests the nature and direction of such efforts at 12 of Florida's 13 existing community-junior colleges. Initial planning activities and months required to accomplish them are summarized, along with the various methods by which new institutions acquired facilities to begin instruction. In addition, a sequence of typical campus planning activities was developed which schematically indicates these events from their initiation to the "working drawings" stage. Major areas of planning are reviewed, including academic, fiscal, and physical. Site selection studies involved local boards operating in accordance with state department of education criteria. Sites were obtained as grants or gifts from individuals or government agencies. Long range space needs were established through the use of facilities surveys, and--in some cases--through the development of educational specifications dealing with the purposes, teaching methods, building requirements, and equipment needs of each curriculum area. Campus development plans were discussed and classified according to three general typologies: "lineal,""collegial," and "compact." In concluding this study, several key factors in good campus planning were identified, including interagency coordination, adequate sites and funding, the use of one architectural firm throughout, good enrollment projections, and comprehensive educational specifications.
