Highlights of the Utah System of Higher Education Master Plan, 2000: A Commitment to the People of Utah.
Utah State Board of Higher Education, Salt Lake City.
The Utah Board of Higher Education Master Plan, 2000 describes how the Board of Regents and Utah's nine public colleges and universities will serve the changing and diverse needs of students. In the plan, the Board of Regents promises students superior quality educational opportunity through nine major commitments: (1) expanding opportunities for access to quality programs; (2) increasing accountability for performance; (3) using resources efficiently; (4) funding quality improvements; (5) expanding opportunities for applied technology education; (6) collaborating with public K-12 education; (7) promoting economic development through research, training, and cooperative extension; (8) refining institutional missions to respond to citizens' needs; and (9) making long-term educational improvements. Expansion of high-quality educational opportunities throughout all areas of the state will be accomplished by evaluating local needs and developing service area education coordination plans. Emphasizing differing roles and missions of the nine Utah System of Higher Education institutions will provide greater choices for students. This includes adoption of more stringent admission standards at the University of Utah and Utah State University (main campus), and exploration of possible higher admission standards at Southern Utah University at an appropriate time. Accountability and performance indicators have been specified with a recommendation that some additional funding be attached to achievement of the desired results. (JA)
