Long-Range Planning for Community College Education.
Mundt, John C.
A monograph, which is the first written description of a state-wide application of systematic planning based upon the concepts of corporate and conglomerate long-range planning, is presented. The six-year planning process of the Washington State community college system embraces a four-phase sequence of activities. Phase I involves the development of a tentative system-wide statement of goals and objectives, together with examples of program steps needed to implement the objectives in Washington's 22 community college districts. The purpose of Phase II was the development of 22 district long-range plans that would articulate with the Phase I system-wide statement. Phase III calls for consolidation of the planning reports from the 22 districts with the Phase I statement into a final system-wide plan for 1973-75. Phase IV will utilize the systems and procedures for planning developed in Phase I through III. Other data given in this monograph include the background for the six-year plan, the plan itself, the basic elements of a long-range plan, and additional considerations. Conclusions are given. (CK)
