Coordination and Cooperation in Higher Education in Massachusetts.
Henry, David D.
For a number of years college and university administrators, government officials, and legislators, both state and federal, have striven to achieve better interinstitutional cooperation and coordination in higher education. This report treats the topic of cooperation and coordination by answering the following questions: (1) How can the state of Massachusetts plan more effectively for higher education? (2) Is a regional structure likely to be useful for higher education planning in Massachusetts? (3) How can the views of the legislature and the public be fed more adequately into the higher education planning mechanism in Massachusetts? (4) How can interinstitutional cooperation and coordination be fostered in Massachusetts? (5) How can competitive expansion, duplication of efforts, and waste of funds be avoided in Massachusetts? To more fully understand these questions, the report describes the relationship between Massachusetts public and private institutions; explains the aspirations, obligations and responsibilities of Massachusetts public institutions; and outlines the position of the Massachusetts Advisory Council on Education.
