A Statewide Plan for Postsecondary Education in New Mexico: 1983-1987.
New Mexico State Commission on Postsecondary Education, Santa Fe.
A 1983-1987 plan for postsecondary education in New Mexico is presented by the Commission on Postsecondary Education. A brief summary of postsecondary education in the state covers institutions, recent enrollment history, and state funding patterns. Assumptions about the planning context for the 5-year period are based on demographic, educational, societal, and economic factors. Recommendations are offered for (1) responding to New Mexico's environmental and economic needs, (2) access to education, (3) and resource requirements and their effective use. Specific attention is directed to: students' academic preparation; student costs; geographic access; changing needs and articulation; institutional role and mission; responsiveness to needs; public, state, and institutional roles; advances in technology; funding requirements; and partnerships in education. The Commission's recommendations were reviewed by groups and individuals throughout the state. Appendices include papers describing New Mexico's postsecondary system, the anticipated planning context for the 1980s, the rationale for selecting critical issues, and supporting data on enrollments, appropriations, instructional expenditures, students' age and ethnicity, and tuition.
