State Boards Responsible for Higher Education, 1970.
Zwingle, J. L.; Rogers, Mabel E.
State agencies and organizations are playing an increasingly significant role in American higher education. With rising educational costs, increasingly complex programs, and burgeoning enrollments have come a movement toward State governing and coordinating boards designed to provide lay leadership in the advancement of public higher education. In 1960, the U.S. Office of Education published a volume entitled "State Boards Responsible for Higher Education," a volume whose introductory chapters, analytical tables and State-by-State descriptions of the organization of State boards proved a valuable resource for all concerned with higher education. This document is intended to provide an update of that publication by providing a factual description of arrangements now made by the States for governing and coordinating their higher education programs.
