The Yale Higher Education Research Project: A Provisional Prospectus.
Dresch, Stephen P.
While initially focused on the potential consequences of alternative capital market innovations, this project was initiated in the fall of 1972 as one outgrowth of the introduction at Yale University of the Tuition Postponement Option. A Tuition Postponement is viewed as a means of enabling students to bear an increased share of the cost of education without effectively excluding any student on the basis of parental income or wealth. In effect, the student postpones his tuition payment until after his graduation. The purpose of this initial prospectus is to present the range of issues with which the project will be concerned over the next 2 to 4 years. The first section discusses in greater detail the origins and objectives of the research effort by assessing the consequences of Tuition Postponement, identifying the possible implications of this type of program, and establishing the feasibility and social desirability of this form of income as one element of public higher education policy. The second section provides more specific descriptions of the research that has been initiated to date. The third section briefly reviews the organization and staffing of the project. (Author/PG)
