The Challenge is Change: Ohio's Master Plan for Higher Education.
Ohio Board of Regents, Columbus.
These two documents present an executive summary and the full text of Ohio's master plan for higher education. Principles underlying the plan include use of collaboration to improve access and quality in cost effective ways; academic excellence consistent with specific campus missions; and consideration of local, regional, state, national, and international contexts in making decisions. Strategies for individual campuses reflect the following overall objectives: improvement of student access and graduation rates, improvement of the effectiveness of learning experiences, research focused on achieving optimal benefits in both basic and applied research; focus on enhancing Ohio's economic development and quality of life; and development of collaborative partnerships to improve productivity. Statewide objectives include: improving the predictability and stability of state funding of higher education; strengthening the differentiation of campus missions; implementing a funding model that reflects the state's goals; enhancing statewide coordination by providing better management information identifying state-wide responsibilities, and facilitating the work of campuses through technology. Broad goals for the year 2006 include: more varied access options, better-prepared students, emphasis on liberal learning, improving quality through shared resources, and an integrated network of high-performance campuses.
