The Pauper and the Prince.
Ashworth, Kenneth H.
This speech discusses the growing Federal involvement in higher education and its impact on institutional autonomy. As there is no alternative to further increases in aid to higher education from the Federal government, higher education institutions must take note of the leverage this will provide to the government. Since many values in higher education are dependent upon institutional autonomy (academic freedom, quality, and diversity), institutions must identify their goals upon which they will stand without compromise to protect their autonomy. Institutions must protect their principles realistically against all sources of funds. An additional threat to institutional goals and priorities may be the establishment of a national department of education that could subordinate education to the State. (Author/PG)
