The long-term planning concerns of colleges and univerisities have been shifting in recent years. Emphasis is increasingly being placed upon the exploitation of all higher education resources through regional or state coordination, and upon the adjustment of services to the changing educational and vocational needs of society. The Ninth Annual Conference of The Society for College and University Planning, held in Denver July 14-17, 1974, examined the causes and reults of these new developments. Some indications of the conference's successful presentation of the issues involved can be found in the presence in Denver of representatives from statewide education agencies and unversity systems, legislators, and officers of consortia. These individuals, amounting to one-fifth of the nearly 500 present, comprise a new constituency at Society meetings. This report on the conference explores the implications of the new priorities in higher education.
