Pluralism and Partnership: The Case for the Dual System of Higher Education.
Texas Coll. and Univ. System, Austin. Liaison Committee on Texas Private Colleges and Universities.
The Liaison Committee on Texas Private Colleges and Universities undertook a study of private higher education in Texas and its future, taking into account contemporary conditions confronting all higher education and major public policy issues at state and national levels. The Committee carefully discussed and offered recommendations on: the continuation of an independent sector in Texas; the revolutionary changes in higher education and the changing nature of the university operating costs; appropriate state action to preserve the dual system; the necessity for a strong statewide coordinating and planning agency; the present contribution of private education to the life of the state; enrollments; the significance of the state's attitude toward private education; the recruitment, retention and use of faculty; financial problems; graduate programs; and medical and engineering education. Legal considerations pertaining to the proposed new relationships between the state and the independent sector and the role of the private sector in leadership are also discussed. Tables, charts and maps are provided. (JS)
