THE FEDERAL INVESTMENT IN HIGHER EDUCATION, THE NEED FOR A SUSTAINED COMMITMENT.
American Council on Education, Washington, DC.
BECAUSE OF THE INTERDEPENDENCE OF HIGHER EDUCATION AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, THE POSITION OF THE AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EDUCATION IS THAT THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD HAVE AN ACTIVE ROLE IN STRENGTHENING HIGHER EDUCATION. THE GOVERNMENT'S SHARE IN FACILITIES CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS SHOULD BE INCREASED, AND EMPHASIS ON EXPANSION OF ENROLLMENT CAPACITY SHOULD BE LIBERALIZED. PROGRAMS IN HOUSING AND STUDENT AID SHOULD BE EXPANDED. MATCHING PROVISIONS IN NDEA LOAN PROGRAMS SHOULD BE RELAXED, ELIGIBILITY FOR LOANS SHOULD BE BROADENED, AND THE FORGIVENESS FEATURES SHOULD BE CURTAILED OR ELIMINATED. WORK STUDY PROGRAMS SHOULD CONTINUE AT THE PRESENT SUPPORT LEVEL. THE GUARANTEED LOAN PROGRAM, WHICH HAS BEEN GENERALLY UNSUCCESSFUL, NEEDS RESTUDY. THE NDEA FELLOWSHIPS, WITH THEIR EMPHASIS ON PREPARATION FOR THE DOCTORATE, SHOULD BE SUPPLEMENTED BY OTHER TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS AND EXTENSION OF THE NDEA INSTITUTES TO INCLUDE COLLEGE TEACHER PROGRAMS. FISCAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT AND HIGHER EDUCATION NEED REEXAMINATION AND PREPARATION OF A MASTER PLAN, ESPECIALLY WITH RESPECT TO COST SHARING, GOVERNMENT RESEARCH POLICY, HEALTH PROGRAMS, AND GENERAL INSTITUTIONAL SUPPORT. COPIES ARE ALSO AVAILABLE WITHOUT CHARGE FROM THE PUBLICATIONS DIVISION, AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EDUCATION, 1785 MASSACHUESETTS AVENUE, N.W., WASHINGTON, D.C. 20036. (WO)
