Some Principles of Planning for Colleges and Universities.
Inman, Joseph C.
This paper outlines a systematic approach to long-range planning in colleges and universities. It deals first with the planning process and the seven objectives for planning. These are: (1) determination of the mission and goals of the college or university; (2) translation of the mission and goals into programs; (3) determination of the resources required for each program; (4) synthesis of programs and resource requirements into a flexible and practical plan; (5) mandatory review of the program on a regular basis; (6) development of a data base to facilitate internal management and budgeting; and (7) provision of a basis for fund-raising. The second part deals with the organization for planning and the need for: (1) a planning officer; (2) a planning committee; (3) program task forces; and (4) an information system. Financial information for projections of operating and capital resources is to be provided by the appropriate business and financial administrators and the operating units, the divisions, schools, departments, and service offices must become involved in providing input to the program task forces.
