Report of Lutheran Committee on Public Policy and Church-Related Higher Education.
Wagner Coll., Staten Island, NY.
This document contains 2 papers prepared by the Lutheran Committee on Public Policy and Church-Related Higher Education relevant to the topic of church-related colleges. The first paper, entitled "Public Policy and Church-Related Higher Education," is a position paper that identifies the considerations pertinent to public policy decisions. The first paper also states certain affirmations that the authors believe the church would want to make concerning the institutions and programs in which it is most directly involved. The second paper is a study document entitled "Public Funds and Church-Related Colleges." This paper may be regarded as a compendium of data and reflections on the problems and issues of financing educational institutions. Also included is a 7-point statement by 1 member of the Committee that summarizes his views on both subjects. The major points made in this statement are that church-related colleges can make a significant contribution to society providing the necessary assistance is made available. However, he feels that his assistance should not be accepted if it is given in such a manner that it would cause the colleges to compromise their situations. He calls for church members to involve themselves with the issues and to support uncompromising government programs and the colleges themselves.
