REFLECTIONS ON THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND HIGHER EDUCATION.
MILLER, PAUL A.
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE UNIVERSITY AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS STUDIED IN TERMS OF THEIR MUTUAL CLIMATE. THREE ASPECTS OF THIS CLIMATE ARE DISCUSSED--(1) THE NEW PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN HIGHER EDUCATION AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT DEVELOPED THROUGH LEGISLATION, (2) THE ADAPTATIONS MADE BY INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING TO GOVERNMENTAL ASSISTANCE AND THE MULTIPLYING OBLIGATIONS WHICH THIS ASSISTANCE CREATES AND SUPPORTS, AND (3) THE DISPOSITION OF THE SPECIALIZED SOCIETY TO THINK OF SPECIFIC AGENCIES DELIVERING EQUALLY SPECIFIC SERVICES. SUBSTANTIAL PORTIONS OF THE UNIVERSITY ENTERPRISE ARE FOUND TO HAVE BEEN MORE RESPONSIVE TO NEEDS OF CLIENTS THAN TO TENETS OF SCHOLARLY PRACTICE. FIVE KEY ISSUES FOR THE FUTURE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE UNIVERSITIES AND THE GOVERNMENT ARE SUGGESTED--(1) CATEGORICAL VERSUS INSTITUTIONAL SUPPORT, (2) MEASUREMENT OF THE REWARDS OF GRANTSMANSHIP AGAINST THE PURPOSES OF SCHOLARSHIP, (3) THE LONG-RUN EFFECTS OF GOVERNMENT SUPPORT ON THE VARIOUS CATEGORIES, (4) THE UNIVERSITY-GOVERNMENT FINANCIAL RELATIONSHIP, AND (5) THE MEANING OF PUBLIC SERVICE. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "AGB REPORTS," VOLUME 10, NUMBER 1, SEPTEMBER, 1967. (HW)
