The California Master Plan for Higher Education in the Seventies and Beyond.
California State Coordinating Council for Higher Education, Sacramento.
In 1960 the State of California established a Master Plan for the development, expansion and integration of the facilities, curriculum and standards of higher education, in junior colleges, State colleges, the University of California, and other institutions of higher education of the state, to meet the needs of the state during the 1960's and 1970's. In 1971 the Coordinating Council for Higher Education in California appointed a Select Committee on the Master Plan for Higher Education to provide a review of the nature and application of the 1960 Master Plan and of the conditions forecast for the 1970's in order to advise the Coordinating Council whether the current Master Plan should be maintained intact, revised, or replaced. It also required a review of the present strengths and weaknesses of higher education in California. Three subcommittees were appointed by the Select Committee. The first of these considered the benefits and the costs of higher education in California; the second considered the higher education system from the student's viewpoint and compared the available educational opportunities with student needs, aspirations, and interests; and the third explored the probable impact of newer trends, including new methods of instruction, and of more recently emerging demands on the educational system. This document presents the findings of the Select Committee and its subcommittees. (HS)
