Recommendations for National Action Affecting Higher Education. A Joint Statement.
National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, Washington, DC.; American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
At their annual meetings in November 1969, the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities adopted a "Statement of Policy Positions." Their recommendations call for: immediate funding of, first, existing federal programs providing institutional aid, then enactment of new programs; tax credit and student-loan indenture proposals; campus, rather than federal, responsibility for minimizing disruption; support for public policies against discrimination in use of public funds for educational purposes; strong opposition to a ceiling on indirect costs of federally sponsored activities and to mandatory cost sharing; full funding and expansion of the grant program and the direct loan program for academic facilities and housing; expansion of international programs; university involvement in solving social and environmental problems; support for federal-state-university cooperation and federal payment for the ROTC program.
