New Students and New Needs in Higher Education.
Cross, K. Patricia
The students entering colleges in the 1970's represent a much broader spectrum of the population than has ever before pursued education beyond high school. Institutions of higher education are not prepared, however, to educate and meet the needs of these new students. This book seeks to shed light on the important question of what kind of student will be attending institutions of higher education in the decade ahead. Chapter 1 analyzes the changing philosophies as the nation attempted to address itself to the question: Who should go to college? Chapter 2 deals with the question of who is going to college now and Chapter 3 includes some predictions about who will go to college in the future. A research description of new students in higher education and an analysis of how their presence should change colleges and universities concludes the study. (Author/HS)
