Report on Progress toward the Statewide Public Policy Initiatives and Goals for Missouri Higher Education, 2001.
Missouri State Coordinating Board for Higher Education, Jefferson City.
This annual report extends and updates information presented to the State Coordinating Board for Higher Education (CBHE) and the CBHE Presidential Advisory Committee since April 1996. It describes progress by the state's system of higher education in implementing the Board's Blueprint for Missouri Higher Education. It also provides a baseline of information for transitioning the state conversation from the Blueprint to the Board's new Coordinated Plan for Missouri Higher Education. Data indicate that much has been accomplished, and substantial progress has been made in improving the state's system of higher education under the Blueprint. However, many challenges lie ahead. Overall, more efforts are needed to ensure that all Missouri high school students, including minorities, are prepared to succeed in work or further education; more efforts are needed to increase the participation and success of the increasing numbers of Missouri citizens enrolling in the state's higher education system; financial aid is needed to help low- and middle-income students afford higher education; and it is important to continue the constant review of the state's higher education system in order to ensure that the quality continues to improve. An appendix presents Missouri postsecondary education institutions with NCA accreditation. (SM)
