State Aid to Private Higher Education.
Shulman, Carol H.
Recent public interest in the unique financial problems of private higher education has resulted in proposals and legislation for state support of independent institutions. Although public assistance alleviates the private colleges' financial problems, it also obligates them to increase state supervision of their activities. Several state boards and independent associations believe the private sector's problems warrant special concern and action. Reflecting this view, the reports and position papers listed in this bibliography generally agree on the necessity for state funding of private higher education. They affirm the importance of maintaining an independent sector and of a state's special responsibility for all higher education institutions within its borders. These convictions are supported by proposals for both student and institutional assistance. Beyond funding, there remains the question of the long-range impact these proposals will have, if implemented, on the distinctive qualities of the private institutions. (Author/HS)
