Imperatives for the Future: A Plan for Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education.
Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education.
To realize its vision as an accountable, collaborative, and increasingly integrated network of universities focused on higher learning, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education commits itself to three major initiatives, focusing on: (1) learning; (2) collaboration and integration; and (3) the accountability imperative. These goals and the strategies to bring them about build on foundation planning set by previous documents including the "Excellence in Equity." To achieve these objectives, the state system will expand access to new and existing clientele, focusing on student diversity. The state also plans to enhance and expand learning activities for Pennsylvania students, and to strengthen the match between the state system's educational programs and the needs of students and the state. The plan also calls for optimizing the management and development of system resources. Six appendixes contain supplemental information about the plan, including the Executive Summary of the "Excellence in Equity" plan. (Contains 56 references.) (SLD)
