This report describes Missouri's Blueprint for Higher Education and the strategies that will achieve the system's goals of access, quality, and efficiency. One goal is to ensure financial access to an affordable system of higher education, with universal access to the 13th and 14th years of education. Strategies include: (1) identifying student populations that do not have adequate financial access and suggesting alternative assistance programs; (2) increasing Missouri's participation in the Midwest Higher Education Compact student exchange program; and (3) promoting the delivery of student financial aid through a telecommunications-based system. One goal for quality is to ensure Missouri citizens have the opportunity to learn with the best instructors and resources available. Strategies for quality include increasing the professional development of faculty as it relates to teaching and reviewing the qualifications of instructors as part of the proprietary school certification process. Finally, a goal for efficiency is to ensure a differentiated system of higher education that demonstrates institutional performance and accountability. Strategies include integrating performance review into the institutional mission enhancement process and recognizing performance in budget recommendations. (EMH)
