Building Systems on the Campus, Part I. BSIC/EFL Newsletter.
BSIC/EFL Newsletter, V4 N1 Jun-1972
The major systems development projects of the 1960's were concerned primarily with facility problems at the elementary and secondary levels. Rapidly increasing enrollments coupled with changes in both curriculum and in teaching methods created a demand for more flexible facilities that could be constructed rapidly and inexpensively. The success of systems procedures in dealing with the problems of time, cost, quality, and flexibility at the elementary and secondary school levels lead quite naturally to the extension of this approach to higher education. The four projects described in this issue are representative of the use of systems procedures to solve a variety of planning and design problems on community college, college, and university campuses. These projects have been deliberately selected to provide a wide geographic representation and include projects in New Jersey, Florida, and Oregon. The second part of this 2-part series on systems on the campus appears as EA 004 975. (Author)
