The Impact of Federal Programs on State Planning and Coordination of Higher Education.
Cox, Lanier; Harrell, Lester E.
This study examines the state administration of each of the following state-coordinated federal programs: the Higher Education Facilities Act of 1963; Title I, Community Service and Continuing Education Programs, and Title VI, Part A, Equipment for the Improvement of Undergraduate Instruction, of the Higher Education Act of 1965; and the State Technical Services Act of 1965. The study analyzes the impact of both the state-coordinated and direct federal programs on state planning and coordination. It also determines the opinions of institutional presidents and state officials on extending the concept of state-coordination to other federal programs and on the need for new types of federal programs and the methods for their implementation. Proposals for new programs include: (1) federal support for state and institutional planning; (2) a federal program of general institutional grants; and (3) a federal tax remission program for education. Lists of the participating states, agencies and institutional presidents, and the questionnaires are appended. (AF)
