The Case for Educational Support.
National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, Washington, DC.; American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
Resources of higher education, public and private, have been stretched to the crisis point by the enormous additional enrollment of more than one and one-half million students since 1965. The cost squeeze at most institutions of higher education today has forced them into large deficits. Their problems are complicated by the many tasks undertaken in the national interest at the behest of the Federal government which, with federal fiscal restraints, now are no longer being funded. Higher education in the U.S., public and private, is provided under a system involving 3 principal components: (1) the ability of the student to pay some tuition and to maintain himself; (2) capital investment in buildings, laboratories and other physical resources; and (3) operating funds-the essential ingredient that includes that part of instruction not covered by tuition plus the current costs of operating the institution. This document presents a case for educational support today, which takes into account all 3 components and their implication for the future. (Author/HS)
