An Analysis of the Proposed Master Plan for Higher Education for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and A Study of Financial Needs of Private Colleges and Universities and Proposed Solutions.
Valente, William D.
The Pennsylvania Master Plan for Higher Education projected that, to meet the needs of the state in higher education, private colleges and universities, which presently enroll 55% of the state's students, will have to increase their enrollment by 39.5%. However, no provisions were made in the Plan to help these institutions do so. This report analyzes: the position of church-related institutions of higher education in the state; the proportion of the total state resources non-aided institutions provide and the burdens they assume; Pennsylvania's policy on church-related colleges and universities; and implementation problems not resolved by the Master Plan. Legal bases for state assistance to church-related institutions are discussed in terms of the nature of the constitutional problems and the position of the federal Constitution; legislative proposals to help implement the Master Plan, which include the creation of a Higher Educational Assistance Authority; and the economic and social bases for the proposed assistance. Relevant experiences in other states and statistical tables are included in the appendix. (AF)
