McMinn, William G.
This report is an update of a report on the development and status of various programs in architecture and related fields in the State University System of Florida, a report that was submitted to the Board of Regents in May 1983. The objectives of this updated report, like those of the earlier one, are to review the anticipated needs of the various professions for qualified personnel, to attempt to project the growth of the state, and to match the institutional requirements for professional education in these related areas. Schools represented in the review are Florida State University at Tallahassee, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University at Tallahassee, University of Florida at Gainesville, University of South Florida at Tampa, Florida International University (FIU) at Miami, Florida Atlantic University (FAU) at Boca Raton, and University of Miami at Coral Gables. Two centers were also visited: Florida Center for Urban Design at Tampa, and FAU/FIU Joint Center for Environmental and Urban Problems at Fort Lauderdale. Prior to the program reviews, the 10 original 1983 consultants' recommendations are provided, as well as program evaluations based on the developments that occurred during the interim in response to each recommendation. Appendices include the site visit schedule, a list of the university coordinators, the consultants' vitae, and the academic degree program inventory through January 1988 for all the schools in the report.
