Council of Higher Educational Institutions in New York City; New York City Private Colleges. A Position Paper for the Future.
Lincoln, Robert L.
Many of New York City's 35 private institutions of higher education are in financial difficulties and need the help of the City. This report by the Council of Higher Educational Institutions in New York City (CHEI) outlines 12 steps that can be taken to assist these institutions. These steps include: (1) absorption by the City University of New York of all private institutions now in financial trouble; (2) a tuition increase that would cover operating costs and other expenditures; (3) an annual subsidy on a per head basis; (4) the development of an operating plan whereby all credits can be transferred freely between all institutions; (5) a cooperative plan for hiring faculty; (6) the establishment of a New York City advisory corporation under the Mayor which could help the institutions deal with their financial problems; (7) the recruitment of a strong industry-education committee to be used as an advisory board; (8) launching a Council of Trustees to discuss mutual problems; (9) a study through the CHEI of all private institutions in the city; (10) a research project through the CHEI to develop special programs to be shared by the institutions and which would form the basis for ten years of cooperative planning; (11) the development of a strong City Department of Higher Education; and (12) the appointment of a CHEI steering committee to meet regularly with the Mayor.
