Perspectives for the University of Connecticut. A White Paper on Planning.
Connecticut Univ., Storrs.
In answer to the demands from all sides for change in higher education, a study group was formed at the University of Connecticut to determine the direction that institution will take to meet present demands and future needs. In doing so, the committee concerned itself with certain issues that constitute the background of any planning effort. These are: (1) the fundamental forces at play in determining the future of mankind and of the society within which the American universities operate; (2) the specific responsibilities of a big state university in the rapidly changing milieu that surrounds it; (3) the present image of the University of Connecticut in relation to these first two issues; and (4) possible mechanisms aimed at defining the options open to the University of Connecticut in the coming decade. The major recommendation of the study group is that the University, throughout its implementation of new developments, continuously evaluate new and existing programs to assure that the goals of the institution as a whole are being met.
