Federal Regulation and Higher Education. ERIC/Higher Education Research Report Number 1.
Bender, Louis W.
Federal funds are an essential component to the fiscal vitality of higher education; however, in recent years the award of these funds has been contingent on complying with federal regulations. This monograph explores the nature of regulatory practices to determine if federal regulations have altered governance patterns or infringed on institutional autonomy. First, the evolution of federal influence on higher education since 1936 is reviewed, with a detailed discussion of regulations in effect since 1970 (including affirmative action, student financial aid, institutional aid programs, the Buckley Amendment, and categorical aid). There is discussion of how regulations are written, federal accountability versus institutional autonomy, recommendations for reform, costs to institutions, resultant program changes, and the implication of federal regulations for higher education administration in the future. An extensive bibliography is included. (Editor/MSE)
