Minnesota Private Higher Education.
Minnesota Higher Education Coordinating Commission, St. Paul.
At the request of the Minnesota Higher Education Coordinating Commission, a panel of experienced American educators was organized to study the private institutions of higher education in Minnesota. Throughout the 1969-70 academic year, this group gathered a comprehensive body of information about these institutions. It also reviewed a number of similar investigations, policy statements, and descriptions of practices in a score of other states. The conclusions of the Private College Study Panel indicate that private colleges have made impressive contributions to Minnesota and that their present programs provide the foundation for greater potential contributions in the future. However, the report also clearly suggests that this potential will be achieved only if the state takes positive action to greater utilize private colleges in meeting postsecondary needs of the state. Implicit in the conclusions and recommendations is the observation that future developments in postsecondary education must be based on careful planning and must reflect explicit state-policy decisions if emerging needs are to be met effectively.
