Post-Secondary Education Planning in Texas: Techniques for Policy Analysis. Number 8.
Texas Univ., Austin. Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs.
The Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs has established interdisciplinary research on policy problems as the core of its educational program. A major part of this program is the policy research project, in the course of which three faculty members, each from a different profession or discipline, and about 15 graduate students with diverse backgrounds, research a policy issue of concern to an agency of government. This document is a report of one of the policy research projects conducted during 1973-74. Following a brief overview of the postsecondary education organizational environment in Texas (chapter 2), consideration is given (chapter 3) to county-to-institution student flows and their implications for institutional development. Statistical analysis of the Austin-San Antonio region of Texas is provided in chapter 4. Chapter 5 approaches institutional and program development from a regional perspective and examines in detail the intrainstitutional program development procedures and interinstitutional coordination in the Austin-San Antonio region. Areas for future investigation are noted in chapter 4. (Author/KE)
