Higher Education in the Boston Metropolitan Area. A Report of the Board of Higher Education of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Massachusetts State Board of Higher Education, Boston.
This special study of higher education in the Boston metropolitan area was one of several efforts to evaluate the present total system of higher education in the state. These studies will be the bases for the formulation of a comprehensive state plan for public higher education. The purpose of this study was (1) to develop reasonable estimates of the number of potential students from the metropolitan area for institutions of higher education; (2) to develop a reasonable estimate of the ability of the Boston area institutions, private and public, to provide sufficient opportunities in higher education for students from the area; and (3) to suggest alternative courses of action which would allow for the creation of a system of higher education capable of meeting the needs of the area's citizens. A concise summary of the study's findings and recommendations is presented in 6 pages. (AF)
