Coming of Middle Age in Higher Education.
Cheit, Earl F.
The major financial difficulties that have beset higher education within recent years have heralded the end of "the golden years" for colleges and universities. Institutions seeking to meet the continuing academic needs of students in a time when there is no money for new staffing, programs and buildings, are facing hard choices. The decisions that are made will affect the entire complexion of higher education for years to come. In this address, the author points out many of the problems that educators must face and plan for if they are to make feasible plans for the future of their institutions. (HS)
