A College Planning Cycle. People Resources Process. A Practical Guide.
National Association of College and University Business Officers, Washington, DC.
The process described in this manual is one of the few systems for planning and budgeting in colleges and universities that is meticulously detailed. It includes the unique concepts of the planning team and the analytical studies team, and promotes a cooperative, integrated, and enthusiastic involvement of faculty, students, and staff from all levels of the institution, resulting in more willing acceptance of final decisions. Other features are the relatively simple procedures, annual repetition of the process, and specific results of a logical and systematic program and budget review. The value of institutional planning itself is evident in various ways: it (1) helps the institution progress in ways that its trustees, officers, faculty, and students consider most suitable; (2) provides a process for institutional response to challenges in the environment; (3) presents various alternatives available to the institution; (4) becomes a vehicle for response to strengths and weaknesses; and (5) focuses on utilization of resources to best advantage. Sections of the document cover: planning and budgeting in colleges and universities; the planning and budgeting system; the planning and budgeting cycle; and other planning and operating considerations. Appendixes include: illustrative sample forms; black sample forms; and flow charts. (Author/PG)
