Inventory of Physical Facilities in Institutions of Higher Education, Fall 1974.
Petersen, Richard J.
As part of the ninth annual Higher Education General Information Survey (HEGIS) conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics, an inventory of physical facilities at colleges and universities for fall 1974 was undertaken. The inventory provides a benchmark for facilities against which current conditions may be tested by persons in various organizations (e.g., institutional, state, regional, and national). The study is built on an actual inventory of space, based on a classification system codified in the "Facilities Inventory and Classification Manual, 1973." By employing a standard set of definitions and format for data collection, individual institutions may meaningfully compare themselves with other institutions. In addition to statistical tables, the report contains a guide to use of data and a summary of findings. The summary concerns trends, building characteristics, room-use, average square feet per full-time-equivalent student, program category, and housing. A sample survey questionnaire is appended. (SW)
