Is There a Role for Institutional Research in Innovative Planning in Higher Education?
Strickland, Wayne
The role that institutional research can play in providing strategic information for evaluating the feasibility of establishing satellite campuses is outlined. Satellite campuses are intended to serve new student markets as well as provide better access for existing students via off-campus sites. Both internal and external factors affecting satellite campus facilities development are examined in this report. The investigation of internal factors include: reviewing institutional surveys as a source of attitudinal information concerning student, faculty, and alumni interests in satellite course offerings; and examining the geographic distribution of students, alumni and public service participants in order to delineate highly accessible sites for new campuses. External factors for possible research include: (1) an analysis of the various market segments in the region that could potentially respond to new educational services in outlying areas; (2) an examination of potentially high accessible sites within the region based on population concentrations and transportation corridors; (3) an assessment of the economic feasibility of satellite campus development; and (4) a review of the general administrative and/or procedural problems associated with the creation of satellite sites.
