Planning the Development of Universities-IV.
Onushkin, Victor G., Ed.
These five case studies cover different aspects of university planning. Two case studies analyse university planning in two countries, the USSR and the German Democratic Republic, where overall national social and economic planning exists and where planning of higher education forms part of the developed planning system. The other three case studies -- University of New York at Buffalo, Western Australian Institute, and University of Louvain in Belgium -- analyse some aspects of university planning, management, and the information systems in countries where there is no national socioeconomic planning system. The five different case studies collected together constitute an interesting comparative survey of how universities plan their activities within different socioeconomic contexts. However, all of them substantiate that the use of modern methods of planning and management, supported by an adequate information system of criteria for the evaluation of university activities, can make a very important contribution toward improving university planning and management and toward a better orientation of university activities to the socioeconomic needs of their respective countries.
