Blueprint for Missouri Higher Education. 1999 Report on Progress toward the Statewide Public Policy Initiatives and Goals for Missouri Higher Education.
Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education, Jefferson City.
This report updates progress made by the Missouri state's system of higher education toward the attainment of 24 goals established in 1992 and reaffirmed in 1996. Each goal statement includes an indication of its associated value (access, quality, efficiency) and notes if it is related to the Funding for Results initiative. Also provided for each goal is a brief history and analysis of its current status, often including charts and tables. The 24 goals address the following concerns: the recommended high school curriculum, advanced placement opportunities, underrepresented groups and minority student participation and success, prospective school teachers, remedial education, enrollment at public four-year colleges and universities, admissions recommendations by admission category, success rates of entering freshmen, geographic access to postsecondary technical education, student transfer, employment of minorities in Missouri higher education, degree program assessment, graduation rates, degree productivity from selected disciplines, assessment in the major field of study, national recognition of graduate and professional programs, changes in funded positions by employment category, faculty workload, student financial aid, performance-based funding recommendations, instructional and research equipment and facilities, accountability reports, operating and capital funding recommendations, and governance. Several appendices further amplify the report and an attachment summarizes campus teaching/learning improvement projects (DB)
