Summary

PRIME is an acronym for Planning Resources in Minnesota Education. The project's primary objective is to test the implementation of CAMPUS (Comprehensive Analytical Methods for Planning University Systems) in one State College, one Junior College, and in one school at the University of Minnesota. The CAMPUS model was developed by the Institute for Policy Analysis in the University of Toronto and through a Ford Foundation grant made available to the public. The latest model, CAMPUS-V, was programmed on an IBM 360/85 computer. CAMPUS-MINNESOTA (CAMPUS-M) is identical to CAMPUS-V except it is operational on the University of Minnesota's CDC 6600 Computer. CAMPUS-M is a resource simulation model with the ability to represent "reality" in considerable detail. This report discusses: (1) the inputs needed for a single course or activity; (2) the process in terms of (a) instruction programs; (b) support programs; and (c) research and public service programs; (3) the 3 major groupings of output: input data reports, cost center reports, and overtime reports; (4) some areas where the model may be a valuable tool for analysis; and (5) the research in progress, including program costing, resource analysis models in higher education, analysis of faculty activities, faculty activity information system, and curriculum cost benefit analysis. Exhibits and input data sheets are included in the report. (AF)
