A Fresh Look at Market Segments in Higher Education

New data about students at one urban university show that the old categories of “traditional” and “nontraditional” need to be reconceptualized.

From Volume 30 Number 1 | Fall 2001

Abstract: Urban schools segment students into direct from high school (DHS) or "traditional" and adult or "nontraditional," based on presumed scheduling and program preferences and media access. Grouping enrollment and survey data from one institution by permanent residence, class schedules, and campus participation produced a modified picture: local DHS students are more like adults than out-of-town DHS students. "Campus-centered" and "community-centered" are proposed to replace traditional and nontraditional concepts. Implications of this reconceptualization are developed.

Computer Needs of Students with Disabilities

Findings in this study present the case that higher education institutions have to address the issue of access to computer technology by all students.

From Volume 30 Number 1 | Fall 2001

Abstract: A study identified operational computer lab models being used at higher education institutions to accommodate the computer needs of students with disabilities and to develop an instrument to assist administrators as they evaluate their programs to implement such models. Study findings presented the case that institutions have to address the issue of access to computer technology by all students. These findings are supported by studies that showed legislative initiatives that mandate disability accommodations, increasing numbers of students with disabilities enrolling in U.S. colleges and universities, increasing numbers of computers on campuses, and the requirement for use of computers by college students.

The Strategy of Planning

From Volume 29 Number 4 | Summer 2001

Abstract: Planning is often practiced as a tactical tool to accomplish a set of specific tasks. However, planning can also be a powerful strategic tool that guides decision making. Planning as a strategy involves defining expected outcomes and structuring the means to achieve those outcomes. The three factors essential and hierarchical to strategic planning are clear expectations, clear actions to achieve the expectations, and integrated resources to support those actions. Planning as a strategy also requires considering how the effects of any given decision are connected to other relevant actions or decisions. Through these means, owners can better understand inherent risks and achieve their desired vision.
