New Directions in Higher Education.
In view of the current demand for curriculum development and evaluation, relevance in source offerings, and overall accountability, Central Michigan University studied the literature on curriculum changes and conducted interviews on the topics. The report has two major objectives: to identify the projected needs of society (i.e., the numbers of college and university graduates needed over the next decade and the mix of skills required by them), and to review and evaluate emerging program areas for the decades ahead, including the clientele to be served and the delivery systems required. Specific topics covered include: the demand for higher education; new courses and degree programs; changes in campus life; university finances; vocationalism; 18 to 20 year-old age cohorts; nontraditional students; migration patterns; unemployment among college graduates; salaries; underemployment; on-the-job training; institutionalization and the diffusion of knowledge; inflation; labor market; and indicative planning. A 21-page bibliography is included. (LBH)
