The Future of Higher Education. How to Get There from Here.
Carnegie Commission on Higher Education , Berkeley, CA.
The 20th century has seen the rise and development of American colleges and universities to levels of performance admired by people the world over. Ironically, it has also witnessed the emergence of serious difficulties that threaten the survival of some of these institutions and create anxieties for almost all of them. The Carnegie Commission on Higher Education was created to make a systematic appraisal of higher education and to suggest guidelines for its continuing development. It is further given the mission of obtaining information, analyzing issues, and advising the educational leaders, decisionmakers in and out of government, and the general public on directions for the future. Some of the findings are presently available and are summarized in this report. (Author/HS)
