Institutional Aid: Federal Support to Colleges and Universities.
Carnegie Commission on Higher Education , Berkeley, CA.
The major themes of the book are: (1) The Federal government should provide substantially greater funds for higher education, including funds to institutions for general support of educational programs. (2) The institutional support within the totality of federal support programs for higher education includes expenditures for student aid, research, construction grants, and loans, and a variety of special programs such as cooperative education, community education, and developing institutions. (3) Basic support of and responsibility for higher education remain with the states and with private initiative. (4) The form of Federal aid should minimize constitutional problems and hopefully eliminate them altogether. (5) The autonomy of institutions should be preserved. (6) Federal aid should be given in a manner that does not encourage the states and private sources to reduce their support. (Author/PG)
