Academy for Educational Development, Washington, DC.
This report contains a brief description of the institutions and agencies concerned with higher education in Massachusetts. The first section covers the institutions of higher education in the Commonwealth, both public and private, and both nonprofit and proprietary. The second section describes briefly the various agencies involved in higher education including the Executive Office of Educational Affairs, the Board of Higher Education, the Massachusetts Advisory Council on Education, the Higher Education Facilities Commission and the Higher Education Assistance Corporation. The paper concludes with a brief summary of the Governor's higher education reorganization plan including proposals for: (1) two statewide boards to replace the seven existing boards with statewide responsibilities; (2) five new regional education boards to represent each part of the state; and (3) individual campuses and local school systems to have the power to determine their own affairs, control their resources, and select their professionals.
