Summary

This study was undertaken to assess the capability of leaders in higher education and government agencies to cope with enrollment, financial and planning problems they will have to face in the next 10 years. Specifically, a study was made to determine the feasibility of establishing a national planning congress which would develop coherent, articulate, and comprehensive national policies and strategies to guide the growth of higher education. To determine the current status of planning for higher education and the extent to which planning efforts were being coordinated at the national level, 70 seminars were conducted and numerous individuals interviewed. Part 1 of the report presents the findings concerning the present status of planning at various levels, reviews prospects for planning, and recommends that the establishment of a national congress is not advisable. Part 2 deals with the positive recommendation of this study: an Education Act of 1970, designed to improve institutional and statewide planning for education at all levels, to strengthen the federal government's capacity to coordinate its own educational support programs, and to establish education clearly as a major national concern. Appendices are attached. (AF)
