Postsecondary Educational Needs in Michigan 1975.
Homan, James C.
This document addresses some of the issues and facts that are a part of the planning process for postsecondary education in Michigan: (1) needs being served by postsecondary education (student pressure, national and state enrollment trends, degrees conferred, and employment and placement); (2) demands being placed on postsecondary education in the state (enrollments, manpower requirements, and prospective student demands); (3) projected demand impact on postsecondary education; and (4) conclusions and recommendations. Among the latter are that: (1) greater detail be developed in enrollment projections; (2) the state develop a policy about educational demand versus educational need; (3) cooperative data collection, data dissemination, and planning be promoted; (4) detailed measures of output be developed; and (5) information exchange be undertaken by professional associations and state agencies concerned with manpower.
