Presentation on Higher Education Space Planning to the Assembly Select Committee on Growth and Infrastructure. OP/05-06
California Postsecondary Education Commission
"Space and utilization standards" are budgetary planning tools that measure the need for space in California public higher education systems and are common in other areas of State facilities planning. California's higher education space standards were researched and developed between 1948 and 1966, first by consultants and researchers dealing with the post World War II enrollment surge, then by planners working towards the State's eventual adoption of a higher education Masterplan, and finally as research done by the Commission's predecessor, the Coordinating Council for Higher Education. In response to legislative directives in 1985 and 1987, the California Postsecondary Education Commission worked with national consultants MGT and Associates and an advisory committee to evaluate California's higher education planning standards and guidelines. The Committee met 22 times between 1985 and 1990 and its work led to the 1990 Commission report "A Capacity for Learning." (Contains 4 tables.)
