Master Plan for Educational Research and Development, New York City Community College.
Alfred, Richard L.
An investigation was made of research and development needs among various academic and administrative divisions in New York City Community College. Although the primary aim of the investigation was to obtain information related to current research needs in the college, the study was also designed to accumulate information pertaining to the previous history of institutional research and development and structural conditions for future research and planning activities. The preponderance of information obtained in the study was from sources within the college such as management personnel, department chairmen, faculty, and in some instances students. Information was also obtained from the Tri-State Planning Commission on the socioeconomic composition of the community in which the college is situated, in order to establish guidelines for the future development of New York City Community College. This study revealed that the major thrust of research and development activities should be one of analysis of the effectiveness of educational programs and services. The purpose of the master plan, a description of the college, and the methodology used for developing the plan are presented, followed by the master plan for educational research and development. Means for operationalizing the master plan are also proposed. (Author/AH)
