Strengthening Independent Higher Education in the State of Indiana.
Independent Colleges and Universities of Indiana, Green Castle.
Cooperation between the public and the independent colleges and universities in the State of Indiana has become a tradition since 1945 when the Indiana Conference on Higher Education was formed. Now the independent institutions in the State, like independent institutions throughout the U.S., are facing a critical financial and enrollment situation. The Independent Colleges and Universities of Indiana made several recommendations, to alleviate this condition including: (1) the establishment of an Indiana Coordinating Council for Higher Education to determine that all of the educational resources of the State would be taken full advantage of and that costs would stay at a minimum; (2) a substantial increase of the existing State scholarship program available to all students in the State in need of assistance; (3) the creation of contractual arrangements between the State and the independent institutions for the education of Indiana residents; and (4) emphasis placed on freedom of all higher education institutions in Indiana to determine their own educational philosophy so individuals can find those programs most consistent with their backgrounds, capacities, and interests.
