MIS/TIS/IR Seven-Year, Long-Range Plan: Developed to Substantiate a Request for Title III SDIP Funds.
Olagunju, Amos O.
A seven-year master plan for Barber-Scotia College, which was needed to substantiate requests for federal grants for Strengthening Developing Institutions (SDIP) under the Title III program, is described. An outline for developing a long-range plan is also presented that features: college role, admission policies, enrollment, student recruitment, retention policies, degree and nondegree programs, summer school, student development center, student activities, research, public service, federal funds, physical facilities, computer system, academic advising, administrative organization, faculty development, student financial aid, expenditures, and evaluation activities. The following offices within Barber-Scotia provided reports to the Title III program coordinator: academic affairs, management information system/institutional research (MIS/IR), Center for Development and Resources, administrative improvements, placement and counseling, and student affairs. For each activity, attention was directed to the problem area and the rationale for requesting support, objectives, implementation strategies and activities, required resources, cooperative arrangements, and performance evaluation measures. Portions of a proposal to improve the functions of the MIS/IR Office are presented that consider the proposed functions of the office (e.g., policy formation and planning support), the human resources needed, and costs involved. Specific types of statistics to be collected are identified, along with proposed annual activities and performance evaluation measures for each activity. (SW)
