An Environmental Analysis: Issues and Trends for Planning and Assessment. Institutional Research Report No. 90-21.
Carlson, Christina E.; Prather, James E.
This report revises and updates environmental trends that affect present and future planning and assessment at Georgia State University (GSU). The purpose of this environmental analysis is to determine the major trends in the environment, the implications of these trends for higher education and for the institution, and significant opportunities and potential problems that may arise in the context of these trends and their implications. The major environmental areas that are identified and discussed are the school's macroenvironment (including demographic, cultural, technological, economic, and political forces), internal environment, market environment, public environment, and competitive environment. Information from national, regional, and state sources, as well as from reports issued as a part of the ongoing program of institutional research at GSU are used in the analysis. The report concludes that GSU is in an excellent position to successfully meet the potentially difficult problems facing higher education during the 1990s. Contains 15 references. (GLR)
