Institutional Goals Analyses of a Health Science Subsystem in a Statewide Higher Education System.
Ezell, Annette Schram
An Institutional Goals Inventory (IGI) is used to assess a health science subsystem within a Western statewide higher educational system. Institutional goals are defined as ideal conditions the institution can continuously seek to maximize or perfect. Data were collected from each college and campus responsible for health science education and for the establishment of health science learning environments. The goals were divided into two categories. Outcome goals are those related to the institution and refer to intellectual development. Process goals are those internal goals related to the educational processes and campus milieu. Both long- and short-range goals in health sciences were identified in an attempt to understand the goal responsiveness of each specific educational institution within the state system. The seven goal areas considered most important by each institution include: academic development, intellectual orientation, freedom, accountability/efficiency, individual personal development, vocational preparation, and meeting local needs. The collected data are analyzed and tabulated. The data will serve as the base for development of a future-oriented institutional planning mechanism in a health science subsystem within a statewide higher education system. (SF)
