Facilities Planning for Small Colleges.
O'Neill, Joseph P.; And Others
This second publication in a three-part series called "Alternative Futures" is essentially a workbook that, followed step by step, allows a college to see how its use of space has changed over time. Especially designed for small colleges, the kit makes use of the information that is routinely collected, such as annual financial statements and utilities costs, classroom schedules and course enrollments, staff and student body sizes and composition, and building sizes and conditions. The kit consists of three basic segments. Section 1, Basic Data Forms, contains 14 forms used to collect numerical data from the various sources on campus. Section 2, Institutional Profile, consists of 27 charts and graphs for graphic display of the institutional data. The profile is the planning document for wide distribution within the campus community that forms the basis for analyzing needs and assessing strategies. A series of analysis questions accompanies each of the charts. Section 3, Constituent Views, includes a series of questions designed for use in workshops and for reporting the results of constituent group discussions. A case study example of completed Basic Data Forms and an Institutional Profile is included. (MLF)
