The South's Commitment to Higher Education: Progress and Prospects.
Folger, John K.
Aspects of the Southern commitment to higher education in the post-World War II period are reviewed and their implications for the future are examined. Following discussions of population growth and personal income, an assessment is made of: public attitudes toward higher education, trends in enrollment and student participation, trends in degree production, financial support for higher education in the South, and equal opportunity. Trends in graduate and professional education, in research, in desegregation and the participation of blacks in higher education, and in the relation of college graduates to jobs are also examined.
