The following account of planning's evolution at The American University emphasizes the importance of building flexible working relationships among the various representatives of the university community and the planning staff, in support of " the faculty-student the core of the learning process. " A sound data base and a planning model based on the staff's clear perception of goals and mission, make a foundation from which members of an institution can address the problems that both "increase the need for planning [and] complicate its development." This article has been adapted from Dr. Cleary's remarks at the National Conference on College and University Planning at the Johns Hopkins University, January 1976, at which the Society was cosponsor.
