Higher Education in New York.
Lane, Frederick, Ed.
City Almanac, v17 n3 Oct 1983
New York State higher education policy and finance are discussed in four articles. In "Higher Education and Public Policy in New York," Frederick S. Lane considers the state's institutions, policymakers and politics, financing of colleges, enrollment patterns, links to economic development, and the changing educational environment. Paul T. Veillette's article, "New York State's Fiscal Condition and Budget and Their Implications for Higher Education," examines the economic and budgetary context in which colleges seek funds in a period of fiscal constraint. Next, "Federal Higher Education Policies in the 1980s and Their Implications for New York State," by Mark A. Emmert and John C. Honey, reviews federal policies toward higher education, including the past emphasis on promoting equity, current trends under the Reagan administration, and future challenges. Specific attention is directed to student financial aid, support for research and development, and the extension of federally mandated social programs into academe. Finally, a summary of the highpoints of New York City's success in balancing its budget is presented in "Response--Managing Uncertainty: The Case of New York City's 1983-84 Budget," by Alair A. Townsend. (SW)
