This report updates a staff-prepared workplan of activities to be undertaken through the year 2000 which the Commission adopted at the outset of 1996. The activities in The California Postsecondary Education Workplan, 1996 through 2000 were derived from statutory and State Budget mandates, including year-to-year responsibilities to provide the Legislature, Governor and others in higher education with specific information about postsecondary education. Additionally, many of the projects included in the workplan flowed from issues that the Commission and its staff identified as critical to higher education policy makers. Projects were grouped as follows:

  • those done annually, e.g. updating of prior-year or historical information about higher education enrollments, State expenditures for public colleges and universities, faculty and administrator salaries;
  • projects that would use available resources and were expected to be completed over a one-to-two-year period (starting in 1996);
  • those to be completed in two to five years, if resources permitted; and
  • projects that could be undertaken only if new resources were made available.
To complete a 1997 workplan update, the Commission reviewed its accomplishments since the initial workplan's adoption; discussed changes in California's policy, educational, social and economic environments; and reviewed possible modifications to the plan, including the addition of new projects and changes in the priority/time-line listing of others. The Commission accomplishments since the initial adoption of the workplan are contained in the first chapter. This revised workplan reflects these changes, including updated project completion dates for many recurring Commission projects. Where appropriate, the Education Code or other legal mandate is cited for projects. Additionally, the Commission has added a new matrix of projects to be undertaken during the 1997-98 fiscal year.

The Commission adopted this report at its meeting on June 9, 1997
