SUNY 2000: A Vision for the New Century.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Office of the Chancellor.
This publication presents a plan for the State University of New York's (SUNY) system that looks at the university's role, responsibilities, and resources as they evolve into the next century. The plan is presented by the Trustees and was developed by a board-based advisory committee. It addresses major issues facing society: equality, justice, prosperity, and equity as well as the practical challenges of changing a large institution to meet the demands of the next decade. Following an excerpt from the SUNY mission statement and letters from the Chairman of the Trustees and the Chancellor is a paper describing SUNY's current status structurally, financially, and educationally. Another essay reviews the history and context of the SUNY system. A section titled "Vision for the Future" outlines the SUNY mission in the coming century as the base of research and knowledge on which the state depends and as an institution offering every New Yorker access to the finest possible education. The section following outlines the goals and strategies for that vision in terms of access, undergraduate education, graduate education and research, state needs, and management. Projected enrollment demand for 2000 is considered next, and an analysis of resources and a proposal for planning for the turn of the millennium conclude the document. (JB)
