Higher education in general and the Ohio state system of higher education in particular is facing ever increasing demands for services, inflated costs of resources, leveling off of enrollments and income, and increasing competition from other services for public support. As a result of this need and the desire to improve planning for its own sake, universities in Ohio are intensifying their planning processes and attempting to improve internal management. This planning manual was developed and written primarily by representatives of those schools. This manual should enable an institution that is in the early stages of planning to improve its planning process rapidly, and those in advanced stages to make refinements as needed. Although this manual was written for universities in Ohio, its principles should be of equal importance and application to other public and private colleges and universities throughout the U.S. This document includes sections covering an introduction to planning, planning as a cyclical and continuous process, organization of the planning function, prerequisites for successful planning, and products of the planning process. Appendixes include guidelines for developing goals, the University of Georgia program structure, the Ohio state university program structure, and the WICHE program structure. (Author/PG)
