Comprehensive Statewide Plan for Postsecondary Education.
Nebraska Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education, Lincoln.
The Nebraska Comprehensive Statewide Plan for Postsecondary Education was approved in 1992. Covering the University of Nebraska, the state colleges, community colleges, independent colleges and universities, and private career institutions, the plan is revised periodically to reflect the state's changing needs. Within the plan, six major issues important to higher education in Nebraska have been identified as: assisting institutions in fulfilling roles and missions; facilitating access to postsecondary education; providing leadership in meeting statewide educational needs; promoting the creation of exemplary education institutions; serving as a catalyst for creation of new partnerships; and advocating for operation of strong, efficient institutions. The nine chapters of the report discuss: preparing a comprehensive postsecondary education plan; the Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education's vision statement; defining and fulfilling roles and missions; providing access by offering recommendations to increase diversity; creating guidelines for meeting educational needs of students, employers, and citizens; setting guidelines for creating exemplary educational institutions; creating partnerships and educational bridges with businesses and communities; operating high quality institutions within the context of limited resources; and executing a statewide facilities plan.
