Priorities in Higher Education. The Report of the President's Task Force on Higher Education.
President's Task Force on Higher Education, Washington, DC.
The President's Task Force on Higher Education was asked to submit a statement on priorities for higher education and to suggest how the federal government might assist higher education. This report presents the priorities and divides them on three levels: (1) immediate federal priorities, to include: financial aid for disadvantaged students, support for professional health care education, and increased tax incentives for support to higher education; (2) continuing federal priorities, to include: the expansion of opportunities for post-high school education, and the support of high quality graduate and professional education; and (3) institutional priorities, to include: clarification of institutional purposes, improvement in the quality of the curriculum and methods of teaching and learning, more efficient use of resources, and clarification of institutional governance. The federal government was also urged to establish a National Academy of Higher Education. The appendices include several lists of recent, relevant studies on higher education and other related data.
