The Dynamics of Academic Science.
Consolazio, William V.
The interaction of the American system of higher education with the Federal Government represents an exceedingly complex system that requires considerable study for proper appreciation and understanding. It is the broad objective of this report to further such appreciation and understanding specifically by: (1) developing a profile of the sources of production of scientific and technological manpower of U.S. universities and colleges; (2) assembling meaningful data on the nature, level, and distribution of Federal funds for academic science; (3) evolving and improving concepts and measuring techniques for ascertaining the contributions of academic institutions to scientific and technological manpower resources; and (4) testing a model for the periodic examination of the relation of Federal funds to academic science in particular, and to institutions of higher education in general.
