New York's Higher Education System: Progress and Problems. Background Studies for the Development of New Methods of Financing.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
New York State's public and private colleges and universities have been confronted in recent years with increasing problems of financing the growth of the educational system as required by expanding enrollments. Even without enrollment growth and the need for new facilities and larger operating budgets, increasing costs and slower growth of income have made it difficult for the institutions to operate on a fiscally sound basis with their present commitments. The financial problems differ in nature and scope in the public and private sectors and there are differences also in the plight of the City University of New York versus that of the State University of New York; there are differences as well among the diverse institutions comprising the private sector. Such differences should not obscure the fact that the health and welfare of all are at stake and that new methods of financing both institutions and students are needed. The papers comprising this document present: (1) a comparison of 4-year public and private institutions; (2) trends and projections of enrollments and facilities of the institutions; (3) the financial situation of the public institutions; and (4) the financial situation of the private institutions.
