Washington Private Higher Education: Its Future and the Public's Interest.
Washington State Council on Higher Education, Olympia.
This document reports the results of a study made in Washington State to assess the present status of the 11 private colleges and universities in the State. It was found that these private institutions are serving a vital purpose in offering students a diversified choice in type of education and curriculum. The institutions, presently serving approximately 20,000 students, could easily accommodate up to one-third more students in the present physical plants according to presented data. The financial situation of the majority of the colleges is quite grave, and substantial outside assistance will most probably be necessary in the years ahead. Recommendations are made for developing a program for state assistance to the institutions. (HS)
