Long-Range Planning for Texas Higher Education.
Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Austin.
The report presents results of the first year's effort in developing a master plan for higher education in Texas. The first section highlights contributions of Texas higher education in the areas of research, public service, and teaching. Examined in the next section is the current higher education setting with data on the present status of Texas higher education, Texas demography, and the Texas economy. The third section identifies problems challenging Texas higher education including a 16% adult illiteracy rate, crime, and the changing economy. The final section presents six principles and related goals. The principles include making higher education accessible to all those who seek and qualify for admission and making support through adequate funding a critical issue. Some of the goals are to: develop a centralized statewide telecommunications system to provide access in regions throughout the state; maximize the use of local funds to include federal, corporate, and philanthropic funds; and develop and implement a uniform financial reporting system. Four appendices provide: a planning schedule; history and description of Texas higher education; Texas population figures; and the annual status report for fiscal year 1988. (SM)
