The Opening of Admissions: The Case of the State University of Agape System.
Scott, Robert A.
The system of higher education in Agape (a fictitious name for a real place) is the result of a board of regents decision to consolidate eight campuses (two four-year and six community colleges) and to develop a coordinated program that would simplify admissions and make higher education available to all of its citizens. At the time of consolidation into a single system, a unique, computer-assisted, admissions planning, counseling, and processing was established. A set of 13 philosophical and administrative guidelines was used in developing the system. Special problems arose in the process of implementing it: autonomy, racial issues, and lack of experience were significant among them. (Author/MSE)
