The Master Plan for Higher Education.
Louisiana State Board of Regents, Baton Rouge.
This report outlines the Louisiana State Board of Regents' goals for higher education in the state. After summarizing the history of higher education in Louisiana, demographic and economic trends, and the role of higher education in the state, the report discusses five specific goals: (1) improving access to higher education for all citizens without regard to age, race, gender, physical condition, religion, socioeconomic status, or ethnic background through the development of a community college system and the strengthening of agency and institutional cooperation; (2) improving the quality of higher education by promoting student achievement, strengthening faculty resources, enhancing program quality, and strengthening institutional cooperation; (3) promoting economic development in the state through worker training, increased research and development, business-education cooperation, and international exchange; (4) promoting diversity by increasing the cultural awareness of students, faculty, and staff; and (5) promoting effectiveness and accountability by increasing funds for operations and maintenance, eliminating some academic programs while broadening access, and leveraging scarce resources. Three appendixes provide data on external funds generated as a result of state investments in higher education, major research centers and institutes in the state, and the estimated state general fund requirement formula for higher education funding, revised 1993.
