Excellence and Opportunity for all New Yorkers: The Statewide Plan for Higher Education, 1996-2004.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Office of Higher and Professional Education.
This plan describes the challenges facing higher education in New York State and the goals devised by the Board of Regents to address these challenges. The Regents publish such a plan covering two-year and four-year public, private and proprietary institutions every eight years. The major challenges facing higher education in New York are: (1) the need for access to quality higher education; (2) affordability; (3) a changing labor market; (4) changing demographics; and (5) declining resources. To address these challenges, the Regents have devised three goals: Goal A is that New York will provide education that equips people with the skills and knowledge necessary to contribute to society and be a success in the work force. Goal B is for New York to assure affordable and equitable access to a coordinated system of higher education. Goal C states that New York will provide a cost-effective and quality system. For each goal, this plan describes a series of objectives and strategies to be followed for successful completion of that goal. Included in these objectives are plans to facilitate the transfer of credit between two- and four-year institutions, offer nationally competitive programs at the associate degree level and develop programs that cater to adult education needs.
