Inside Higher Ed. March 26, 2014.

California's storied Master Plan has led to a structure and financing of public higher education that is out of sync with the needs of students and the state, according to a new report from the Institute for Higher Education Leadership and Policy (IHELP) at California State University at Sacramento. The report calls for heightened planning and collaboration at the regional level. It also makes the case for more cost-effective specialization at individual institutions as well as the broader use of technology, such as online education.
