Chapter 4 reviews student enrollments by sex, class, geographic origin, academic aptitude, achievement, and student retention, and projects enrollment to 1980. Chapter 5 discusses the various functions and programs of higher education; chapter 6 the organization for control of higher education in the state; and chapter 7 Oklahoma's resources for higher education. Chapter 8 contains conclusions, recommendations, and suggestions for implementation.
