Strategic Planning for Institutions of Higher Education: A Content Analysis for the Universidad Tecnica del Estado Planning System.
Ten-year development plans of each of the eight campuses of the Universidad de Santiago de Chile, formerly called Universidad Tecnica del Estado, are evaluated, using content analysis. In addition to narrative descriptions, diagrams illustrate the features of each plan, which covers the period 1983-1993. Topics covered by the plans were grouped into 15 categories: campus organization; current programs, enrollments, faculty, and facilities; prior criteria for the planning process; economic resources; teaching; majors or career programs offered and costs; 10-year academic projections; the number of vacancies available for student enrollment in each major; job market; research; extension and community services; physical culture and recreation; physical plant; Chilean educational situation; and educational policies made by other institutions in drawing up their development plans. Charts show the results of the content analysis for each campus and for subcategories under each of the 15 categories. The depth to which each campus considered each item is indicated using a six-code scheme. This approach promotes comparisons among the campuses and assesses the needs of each campus. An important consideration is whether the subjects have been considered in a homogeneous way by every campus. (SW)
