Designed to provide direction for postsecondary education in Alaska for the next 5 years, this statewide plan analyzes the present status of postsecondary education in the state and offers goals and strategies for the future. Following an executive summary of goals and strategies, the report presents an introduction to the growth of postsecondary education in the state, the dilemma of declining revenues, the planning process, the goals of the statewide plan, and the report. Chapter I explains the assumptions about the future planning period from 1986 to 1990. Chapter II describes the current state of postsecondary education in the state. Chapter III provides a broad overview of the problems and issues facing American postsecondary education. Chapter IV contains a brief overview and explanation of each goal of the statewide plan: (1) promote excellence to improve educational service; (2) enhance accountability of the educational process; (3) foster efficiency within the educational enterprise; and (4) improve access to accommodate those citizens who desire postsecondary education. Finally, chapter V presents a series of strategies, with accompanying discussion, grouped according to the goal with which each strategy is associated. A six-page bibliography is included. (EJV)
