Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, DC.
This report is a response to the request of President Johnson in Febraury of 1968 to "shape a long-term strategy of Federal aid to higher education, a comprehensive set of goals and a precise plan of action." Part I describes developments in the 60's which created the need for federal strengthening of postsecondary education. Part II delineates objectives for any program of federal aid to higher education: 1) to increase the number of level of educated people, 2) to equalize opportunities, and 3) to strengthen, encourage, and expand existing resources. Part III describes the present economic factors which influence the student population and explains factors in institutional finances. Part IV deals with special problems of graduate education. Part V discusses the relative merits and drawbacks of alternative forms of student and institutional aid. Part VI justifies priorities of programs and presents ten recommendations to achieve objectives. Over one half of this report contains appended data with primary emphasis on statistical tables relating to institutional finances, federal funding for higher education, and enrollments and graduations by ability and socio-economic status.
