The Politics of Higher Education During the Johnson Administration.
Fullilove, John P.
The Johnson Administration produced a significant proliferation of programs designed specifically to aid higher education. That those programs did not represent an overall strategy of institutional aid does not lessen the clear fact that the President was deeply committed to the concept of aid. The Congress was highly receptive to the Presidential initiatives and enacted broad new aid legislation. The new bureaucracy which was established to administer the program nurtured the new funds carefully in close collaboration with the clientele groups. The higher education associations behaved with more harmony than might have been expected and aided in the successful passage of the landmark Johnson legislation. In sum, policy formulation and implementation was a result of complex interactions and bargaining among the relevant political actors. (Author)
