The Regents Statewide Plan for the Development of Postsecondary Education in New York State, 1984. Volume I: Regents Proposals for Action and Regents Recommendations.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
Critical issues facing higher education in New York State and recommendations of the New York Regents are covered in this first volume of the 1984 Regents statewide plan for postsecondary education. Information is provided on goals, issues, proposed actions, and recommendations for each of the following concerns: access, excellence, employment and economic development, diversity, effective use of resources, and enrollment projections. Also provided are 11 postsecondary objectives accepted by the Governor and retained from the 1980 statewide plan. The Regents' top priority in the 1984 plan is to extend educational access in order to provide equal opportunity for postsecondary education. Another goal is to increase the number of handicapped persons and economically disadvantaged and minority students and women who attend and complete college programs, particularly in technical fields. Additional access issues include: ensuring that students can overcome financial barriers to access; increasing the representation of minorities and women among college faculty and professional staff; attracting able students to teaching careers at all levels; assuring opportunities for adults to return to college; and preparing underprepared applicants for college-level study.
