Criteria for Selecting Campus Size. A Report Prepared for the Select Committee on the Master Plan for Higher Education.
Guthrie, Robert V.; Long, Durward
The present research attempted to isolate any internal and external environmental factors that could be used in determining the optimum or maximum size of senior institutions in California. The structured interview was chosen as the most appropriate technique to accompoish this task. Those schools interviewed were the University of California at Berkeley, Davis, Santa Cruz; California State University at Long Beach, Los Angeles, San Jose, Sonoma; and California Polytechnic State University at San Luis Obispo. The document contains descriptions of each campus. The study recommends that: (1) minimum and maximum enrollment standards should be determined for each institution of higher education; (2) such enrollment standards should be established by the respective governing boards of each segment for each campus within that segment, with the recommendation of that campus and the endorsement of the chief executive of the segment; (3) educational programs, economy of scale, physical community, and internal organization of the institution should be utilized in determining the enrollment ranges. Appendices include interview outlines, profiles, county locations, and population maps. (Author/PG)
