Planning for Planning. Relationships between Universities and Governments: Guidelines to Process.
Trotter, Bernard; Carrothers, A. W. R.
This document is concerned with the ways in which the planning done by universities, singly or together, interacts and might better interact with the planning done by governments or their agencies. This document attempts to focus attention on process as a prior condition to planning that leads to efficient action. The first chapter summarizes the basis on which the study has been undertaken, guidelines offered, and conclusions reached. The second chapter describes briefly the structure of interface between universities and governments at the federal level and in each provincial jurisdiction as it exists today and as it has developed in recent years. Chapter three sets out views on planning and descriptions of who is involved in it. Chapter four deals with the difficult matter of basic assumptions and values. Chapter five postulates the major outcomes of long-term planning--an agreed definition for each university of its particular role. Chapter six examines consultative planning with particular emphasis on the important concepts of autonomy and public accountability. The final chapter recapitulates the guidelines and conclusions offered for consideration by both universities and governments. (Author/KE)
