The President, Colorado Community Colleges, Data Processing, and CAMPUS/COLORADO.
Scheufler, John H.
The community college president's role in facilitating institutional computer utilization is explored, and recommendations are made for his/her behavior and priorities in connection with educational concerns, institutional concerns, and statewide concerns. Typical institutional organizational arrangements regarding campus computers, research, planning and development and management information systems (MIS's) involve the following: (1) the director of research, planning and MIS reports directly to the president; (2) data processing, under this director, is a service-oriented function; (3) the development of MIS's and simulation models are a vital function of this director; and (4) two data processing committees exist; one is advisory and the other is user-oriented. To implement CAMPUS/COLORADO on a statewide basis, each institution must first create a data base that is compatible with a common statewide data base. When this has been done, institutional MIS's can be generated from the same data base. In addition, manpower and financial assistance should be supplied to any institution contemplating the CAMPUS/COLORADO model. Institutions currently implementing this model should validate it within the scope of a statewide data base before other institutions implement it. A central statewide computer center should also be established. (KM)
