New Designs for the Two-Year Institution of Higher Education. Final Report.
Copa, George H.; Ammentorp, William
This final report contains a history and description of a project called New Designs for the Two-Year Institution of Higher Education (NDTYI). The goal of NDTYI was to begin an earnest search for synergies that will better connect educational institutions with the culture in ways that create resources and multiply desired results. NDTYI focused on several target audiences that were involved in the project's development and implementation, including administrative leaders responsible for both designing new institutions and restructuring institutions, and policy makers for higher education. In order to fulfill its goals, NDTYI had to develop an innovative design process and viable design specifications. This report is organized based on the design elements, with each chapter discussing one element in the process. The first chapter provides an introduction to the project's goals and implementation. The remaining chapters discuss the NDTYI's design elements, which include the context, signature, outcomes, process, organization, partnerships, staff and development, environment, finance, celebration, and transitions to new designs. Appendices include a list of the designers, national design group meeting agendas, and contacts for illustrations of new designs. Contains 286 references. (YKH)
