The author finds that in the last decade important changes have occurred not only in higher education's "planning environment" but in general attitudes toward planning as well, and that a sound plan for the future seems likely to become a top priority in both foundation and corporate funding decisions. There are several key areas of the new order, discussed here by the author, to be considered in trying to gauge the future of a college or university. In addition, as the planner's job grows in complexity, there is a corresponding increase in responsibility for preserving the quality and vision of an institution's programs and policies. This article has been adapted from the author's remarks at the National Conference on College and University Planning, held at The Johns Hopkins University in Janurary 1976.
