Maryland Statewide Plan for Postsecondary Education. First Annual Review.
Maryland State Board for Higher Education, Annapolis.
The review of the Maryland statewide plan for postsecondary education was designed to identify and analyze issues confronting postsecondary education that were not contained in the initial plan and to evaluate progress made in carrying out recommendations in the initial plan. After an introduction, Chapter Two focuses on four new planning initiatives: higher education in the greater Baltimore metropolitan area, financing community colleges, financing auxiliary enterprise facilities, and faculty and administrative salaries at public four-year institutions. Chapter Three explores the implementation of role and mission actions in areas such as research and public service. Enrollments are discussed in Chapter Four and programs (e.g., for registered nurses, high ability students, continuing teacher education) are surveyed in the fifth chapter. Finance is examined in Chapter Six, including total funding levels, need-based grants for proprietary school students, and BEOG awards, among others. Chapter Seven considers facilities in areas such as dormitory construction and handicapped accessibility. The final chapter assesses faculty, libraries, and computer services. (PHR)
