Strategic Plan for the Missouri Department of Higher Education.
Missouri State Coordinating Board for Higher Education, Jefferson City.
This document is a comprehensive plan for higher education in Missouri for fiscal years 2000-2001. The Strategic Plan identifies three strategic issues: Quality, Access, and Efficiency. Twenty-four goals are identified, each accompanied by relevant statistics, facts and figures. Goals for quality include: (1) implementation of the Coordinating Board for Higher Education's (CBHE) recommended 16-unit high school core curriculum; (2) Advanced Placement opportunities in every Missouri high school; and (3) all newly certified public school teachers must be as highly qualified as possible. Goals for access include: (1) participation of minorities in Missouri's system of higher education that is at least, in proportion, equal to their representation in the state; and (2) a statewide network of area vocational technical schools and expanded community college service regions. Goals for efficiency include: (1) no public four-year institution that is highly selective or selective will offer formal remedial course work; (2) admissions decisions at all public institutions will reflect the statewide admissions guidelines for standards appropriate to their selectivity; and (3) the number of students completing programs of study in trades and disciplines determined to be critical to Missouri's future will more than double over the number of degrees conferred in these areas for academic year 1990. Contains seven appendices. (RDG)
