Iowa Coll. Student Aid Commission, Des Moines.; Iowa Higher Education Strategic Planning Council, Des Moines.
This report identifies issues and offers recommendations concerning the development of all three sectors of Iowa's higher education community (community colleges, independent colleges and universities, and regent colleges and universities). The report first outlines the educational environment within Iowa in terms of demographic, educational, economic, and fiscal factors. Next, the report states Iowa's commitment to higher education and presents its mission statement for the future in providing access and choice among higher education programs of preeminent quality. Strategic issues are identified in the areas of quality, accountability, sector roles/coordination, access/choice, resource management, and support of economic development, social, and cultural needs. For each area the report presents goals, objectives, and recommended strategies and the action plans needed to implement the strategy. Action plans are proposed which would create several task forces whose jobs it will be to fulfill objectives in the areas of quality, accountability, and accessibility and choice. An appendix describes each of the three higher education sectors in Iowa. (GLR)
