The Invisible Colleges: A Profile of Small, Private Colleges With Limited Resources.
Astin, Alexander W.; Lee, Calvin, B. T.
The "invisible" colleges - private, often church-affiliated institutions with relatively open admissions policies and enrollments under 2,500 - comprise one-third of the four-year colleges in the United States and enroll almost 500,000 students. The author believes that only these colleges can offer their particular students the kind of college experience they seek. (MJM)
