Trying To Do Better With Less: The Experience of the SUNY College of Arts and Sciences at Plattsburgh, New York.
Burke, Joseph C.
Policy strategies implemented at the State University of New York in response to enrollment decline and financial cutbacks are considered. The following areas are addressed: institutional mission, administrative organization, enrollment plan, method of reallocating resources, a systematic program for staff development, program evaluation, personnel evaluation, and governance. Revision of the campus master plan set as a primary goal the development of a new and comprehensive general education program. An administrative reorganization reduced the faculties from five to two by combining humanities, social science, and science and mathematics into a single faculty of Arts and Science and by joining professional and general studies. The reorganization also extended to the central administration of the college. A new model forecasts enrollments by academic program, and a five-year plan forecasts both enrollments and staffing levels for current and projected academic programs. The college's study of its impact on students has aided in the revision of general education, review of course requirements for majors, and extracurricular improvements. (SW)
