Annually, staff prepare a compilation of proposed activities to be undertaken during the next year for discussion and consideration by the Commission. The activities contained in the proposed workplan are derived from several sources: (1) statutory and budgetary mandates, (2) recurring responsibilities and unfinished work from the preceding year, and (3) staff-identified issues of importance to postsecondary education.

This proposed workplan has been organized differently to provide a summary of the context within which postsecondary education -- and the Commission -- must operate over the next several years and incorporates ideas from representatives of the administration, legislative, and educational communities. This workplan also differs from previous plans adopted by the Commission in two respects:

  1. It focuses on the balance of this decade rather than being limited to a 12- or 18-month time span; and
  2. It identifies priorities based on the time frame within which the project is expected to be undertaken and completed. Projects have been listed according to whether they are (a) recurring activities (that occur throughout the year); (b) expected to be undertaken and completed within the next 1-2 years (with existing resources); (c) expected to be undertaken and completed within the next 2-5 years (as resources permit); or (d) expected to be undertaken only if new resources are acquired.
These changes reflect the need to use limited resources in the most efficient manner possible as the Commission seeks to provide sound policy advice to the Governor and the Legislature on the most important challenges facing postsecondary education.

The Commission adopted this report on February 5, 1996.
