Control and Coordination of Higher Education in Virginia.
Russell, John Dale
This analysis of the control and coordination of higher education programs involves those colleges and universities in Virginia that operate under direct state control. Chapter I explains why the report deals only with external controls rather than with the internal organization and structure of the institutions discussed. Chapter II presents state provisions for and discusses the appointments, terms, characteristics and responsibilities of the Boards of Visitors that govern the thirteen 4-year and eleven 2-year state-controlled institutions of higher education. The members of these boards must be appointed through state governmental agencies to qualify the institutions for the designation "state-controlled." Chapter III deals with the level of institutional support, the need for professional budget analyses, practices concerning the use of locally derived revenue, the improvement of faculty salaries, tuition fees, scholarships, endowments, student housing, and policies governing the solicitation of private funds. Chapter IV describes those state agencies with responsibilities that affect higher education, and Chapter V discusses the responsibilities of the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia and its role in the coordination of the state's higher education programs.
