American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
The purpose of this pamphlet is twofold: to suggest areas of growing concern to the present and future of higher education and to initiate promising procedures to come to terms with these problems. The format of the document is a question-and-answer guide to be used by college and university administrators. Topics covered include: (1) purposes, goals, and scope of the whole institution; (2) curriculum design; (3) instructional methods used; (4) governance and organization of the institution; (5) type of student on campus; (6) the financial situation of the institution; (7) improvement of student activities and organizations; and (8) the basis for judging quality and effectiveness of the institution, i.e., regional accrediting agencies. A final section offers questions regarding overall institutional improvement. A 54-page supplement containing a list of references and the tables and figures is included. (HS)
