The Financing of American Higher Education: A Bibliographic Handbook.
Quay, Richard H.; Olevnik, Peter P.
An annotated bibliography of more than 1,100 scholarly publications concerning the financing of American higher education during 1960-1981 is presented. The greatest emphasis is on works published in the last decade, including books, articles, reports, studies, and theses on paper or microform. The following topics representing financial concerns and questions are addressed: the political economy of American higher education; institutions, programs, and coalitions; human resources; and research, planning, and policy development. Specific topics include: higher education costs, benefits, and outcomes; federal and state aid; private philanthropy and fund raising; budgeting at the state and institutional levels; financial issues at private versus public institutions; financial issues affecting graduate and professional education; state master planning; faculty and staff compensation and benefits; faculty unions and collective bargaining; faculty workloads; tuition and student aid; physical plant operations; enrollment projections, price indexes and costs analysis; and retrenchment. In addition to the annotated entries, a foreword by John D. Millett, a list of additional sources of information, and a list of higher education financial data sources are provided, along with author and subject indexes.
