Planning the Development of Universities-III. Final Report.
Onushkin, Victor G., Ed.
This final report of a research project on planning and development lists the most important conclusions drawn from the research dealing with the methodological problems of planning and development of universities. One conclusion is that in the coming decade the qualitative aspects of university activities are likely to be the major concern of those responsible for higher education. Another is that planning at the university level must be considered as part of the planning and management of the whole system of higher education and as dependent on social, economic and political conditions. Recommendations are made concerning: methods and tools for university planning and management; indices and criteria to be used for planning purposes; university information systems for planning; and university planning mechanisms. The experience of different universities is referred to in generalized form, but some details of particular experiences are given in the case studies, summaries of which are included in part three. Case studies carried out for the project are organized in order to study the five important areas: (1) planning access to the university and employment of graduates; (2) planning teaching staff formation; (3) planning of the teaching work; (4) planning of research work; and (5) development of the university information system for planning and management.
