Long-Range Planning and Budgeting at Colleges and Universities.
Eurich, Alvin C.; Tickton, Sidney G.
The need for planning in higher education is more urgent today than ever before. This paper argues that planning is the only method by which colleges and universities can reasonably expect to come to terms with the financial, social, and political crises of our times. Pioneering efforts over the past generation to develop the budget as a principal planning tool must be fused with a comprehensive method for overall planning. This paper further describes the characteristics of an adequate plan and the essential steps in carrying it out. Finally it is suggested that the failure of college and university administrators to plan will only mean that someone else will do the planning for them. This could mean reliance on federal support, a dependency that could well have consequences that no one in higher education would welcome. (Author)
