Detroit Institute of Technology, 2300 Park Avenue, Detroit, Michigan 48201
The Detroit Institute of Technology (DIT) consists of 3 colleges, 1 each of liberal arts and sciences, business administration, and engineering. The report recommends a year-by-year plan for the Institute's development, based on the assumptions that a war will be avoided in the years ahead, that the national economy and several segments of the Detroit area will grow during the next 10 to 15 years, that the need for highly educated and trained manpower will increase and enrollment in institutions of higher education will rise steadily until at least 1980, that private institutions will continue to provide a significant portion of higher education opportunity, and that leading businessmen and civic leaders in Michigan will provide increased financial resources for the Institute. Questions on DIT's future are presented with accompanying discussions on the kind of institution DIT could be, the type of students, faculty, and administrators it will bring together, its organization and program, the cost of building and running DIT as a high-quality institution in the future, and how to close the gap between what DIT is and what it could be. The report also proposes interinstitutional cooperation between DIT, Wayne State University and other institutions, and suggests more cooperation with private entrepreneurs and city, state and federal governments for redeveloping Detroit's central city.
