Guidelines for Review of Proposed University Campuses, Community Colleges, and Educational Centers. A Revision of the Commission's 1990 "Guidelines for Review of Proposed Campuses and Off-Campus Centers." Commission Report.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The California Postsecondary Commission must approve sites for new institutions or branches of public postsecondary educational institutions in the state of California. After a brief summary, this document presents revisions to the Commission's 1990 Guidelines for Review of Proposed Campuses and Off-Campus Centers. The 1990 guidelines called for a three-stage review concept: (1) statewide plan; (2) preliminary review; and (3) final review. The revised guidelines call for clarification of some requirements and procedures, including the following: (1) requirements for the statewide plan and letter of intent warrant greater clarification, particularly regarding the need for inter-system cooperation; (2) the 1990 guidelines assumed that a single set of procedures could be applied to all three public systems, while in practice there are major functional differences between the systems; and (3) over the years, the distinctions among terms such as college, center, and institution have become unclear and must be defined. This document offers detailed revisions to the guidelines that include (1) the systemwide long-range plan; (2) the letter of intent to expand; (3) the Commission's response to the letter of intent; (4) development of the needs study; and (5) commission action. The new guidelines also offer 10 criteria for evaluating proposals, including need, location, funding, and serving the disadvantaged. Appended are: (1) Guidelines for Review of Proposed Campuses and Off-Campus Centers (1990 Edition); and (2) Guide for Community College Districts Projection of Enrollment and Annual Average Weekly Contact Hours for New Colleges and Educational Centers.
