University Planning and Management Techniques.
The growing competition between higher education, other levels of education, and other sectors of the economy for limited government funds has made the need for more systematic methods of planning and management of higher education systems and institutions of utmost importance. This document presents a report of a conference whose purpose was to explore the experiences of various university groups in the development and testing of university management techniques. The introductory session focused on a general discussion based on the following areas: stress in higher education, and the concept of the university. This was followed by six presentations of university experiences in the application of management techniques, three from North America and the three others representing European work. This report is based on the conference papers. A list of participants is also included. (Author/PG)
