"QUESTIONS AS BIG AS THE WORLD AND AS ENDURING AS ETERNITY."
MORSE, WAYNE
NATIONAL INTEREST CALLS FOR MORE ADEQUATELY MEETING OPERATIONAL AND CAPITAL COSTS OF HIGHER EDUCATION. SOME OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE DECREASED FEDERAL AID TO EDUCATION ARE DISCUSSED AND PROPOSALS FOR POLICY CONSIDERATIONS ARE ADVANCED. AMONG THE AREAS MOST INFLUENCED BY INADEQUATE FEDERAL SUPPORT ARE SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAMS, COMMUNITY SERVICES, UNIVERSITY EXTENSION PROGRAMS, NDEA FELLOWSHIPS, FACILITIES CONSTRUCTION, THE INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION ACT, THE TEACHER CORPS, AND THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION ACT. PROPOSALS ADVANCED FOR POLICY CONSIDERATION INCLUDE--(1) AID PROPOSED SHOULD ENCOMPASS BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION, (2) RECOGNITION SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE ADVISABILITY OF EXTENDING SUPPORT TO ALL INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER EDUCATION, (3) PROVISION SHOULD BE MADE FOR EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION OF AID TO ALL GEOGRAPHICAL AREAS OF THIS COUNTRY IN TERMS OF THE STUDENTS EACH INSTITUTION SERVES, (4) RECOGNITION SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE COSTLY NATURE OF RESEARCH ACTIVITIES, AND ADDITIONAL LEVELS OF COMPENSATION SHOULD BE AWARDED FOR THIS PURPOSE, AND (5) IN ADOPTING A PROGRAM, IT WOULD BE WELL TO INCORPORATE INTO THE FORMULA A MAXIMUM CEILING FOR FUNDING IN ANY ONE YEAR TO ANY ONE INSTITUTION. THIS ADDRESS WAS DELIVERED TO THE GENERAL SESSION OF THE JOINT CONVENTION OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF STATE UNIVERSITIES AND LAND-GRANT COLLEGES AND THE ASSOCIATION OF STATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES (COLUMBUS, OHIO, NOVEMBER 14, 1967).
