Responding to Change: Recommended State Policy for Meeting Minnesota's Present and Future Needs for Post-Secondary Education.
Minnesota Higher Education Coordinating Commission, St. Paul.
The period of the 1960's was a time of great escalation of numbers of students enrolled in postsecondary education in the state of Minnesota, but during the 1970's, enrollment growth has slowed considerably. In 1970 enrollment increased by over 5% and in 1971 the increase was slightly over 2%. In 1972, however, enrollments stabilized for the first time in over 20 years. This stabilization has caused educational administrators within the state to reconsider their plans for the future and to alter the direction of their priorities. Thus, this document addresses itself to recommendations for meeting Minnesota's present and future needs for postsecondary education. Specifically, the document deals with (1) financing postsecondary education in Minnesota; (2) assessing needs and providing new educational opportunities; (3) improving postsecondary education through educational resources and programs; and (4) improving postsecondary education through expanded cooperation and coordination.
