Opportunities for Change: Implementing the 2008 Strategic Master Plan for Higher Education
Washington Higher Education Coordinating Board
This report describes the process for implementing the policy goals and recommendations of the 2008 Strategic Master Plan for Higher Education. The report provides analysis and strategies to guide the development of the state's higher education system over the next decade and beyond. The strategies follow from four basic priorities: (1) Preserve the progress we have made by sustaining current levels of support for higher education; (2) Build a larger "pipeline" to postsecondary education that captures more students graduating from our K-12 schools and more working adults; (3) Expand on demand by targeting growth and tailoring institutional plans to respond to known demographic, regional and workforce needs; and (4) Redesign the delivery system for higher education by creating a new process to determine when and where to build new campuses or centers, develop new programs, expand eLearning and other delivery modes, and change college and university missions.
