A Regional Plan for Higher Education: Report from New York City.
Pace Coll., New York, NY. New York City Regional Plan for Higher Education.
This report represents a regional approach to the immediate problems of higher education in New York City, and proposes a series of recommendations toward the cooperative resolutions of these problems. The Regents Advisory Council accepted as its charge a survey of the human, fiscal and physical resources of higher education institutions in New York City, as well as a delineation of specific regional problems, especially in the areas of admissions, counseling and guidance, data collection, facilities, finances, and programs and research. Five Task Forces were appointed to study (1) the full utilization of resources; (2) libraries and major facilities; (3) professional programs; (4) graduate programs; and (5) cooperative programs for the disadvantaged. The major recommendation of the report, that a Regional Coordinating Council for Postsecondary Education in New York City be created, was implemented by the Board of Regents on November 16, 1972 and will take over the work of the Regents Advisory Council in 1973.
