Dimensions of Postsecondary Educational Planning: The "University of California Academic Plan, 1974-1978" As A Case Study.
California State Legislature, Sacramento. Joint Committee on Postsecondary Education.
The stimulation of a wide-ranging conversation about California postsecondary education is a critical function of the Joint Committee on Postsecondary Education. One of the more significant topics of this conversation is planning, which is discussed in this essay. First, a framework for considering the planning process is sketched. This framework includes the context for planning in the 1970's and some suggested characteristics of the planning process. Second, the recent "University of California Academic Plan, 1974-1978," is discussed in light of this framework. (A summary of this plan is included in the appendix.) Approved by the Board of Regents in March 1974, this plan is important on two fronts. The individual campus plans will be developed in consonance with this segmental effort; and the new Postsecondary Education Commission, with the charge of comprehensive planning, must mesh the various segmental plans into a coherent statewide vision.
