The state agency represents the interface between the statewide education system and the governmental and external bodies that would influence it. About 55 state agency staff members from all over the east coast attended an inservice workshop that attempted to measure some of the new dimensions of postsecondary education and to equip participants with effective means to confront related daily problems. There were six content modules which included formal presentations, illustrations, demonstrations, and discussion: "Information Related Problems in State Planning" by T. Edward Hollander; "Problems and Issues Related to the Data Game" by Robert Huff; "External Interest Group Impingements" by Richard Millard; "Problems Clinic--Where Do We Turn for Help?" (a panel of eight representatives from national resource organizations--American College Testing Programs, Southern Regional Education Board, College Entrance Examination Board, American Association for Higher Education, ERIC Higher Education Clearinghouse, and U.S. Office of Education); "State Agency Relationships" by Patrick McCarthy and John Porter; "Dealing with Dwindling Resources" by S.V. Mortorana; "Problems and Issues Related to Legislative Process--The Federal Dimension" by Robert C. Andringa; "New Assumptions for State-Level Leadership in the Future" by Robert B. Mautz. All workshop presentations are included along with a post-workshop analysis by DeForest Trautman that summarizes activities and outcomes. (JT)
