Connecticut's Commitment to Public and Private Higher Education.
Rabineau, Louis
There are three major stages in the development of public and private higher education in Connecticut. Stage 1 was the private college monopoly stage, started in 1701. Stage 2 was the coexistence period when public institutions were developed. Stage 3, 1950 to the present, is the paradox stage, with increasing competition plus increasing cooperation between the private and public institutions in Connecticut. The policy toward private education is the commitment to keeping the public and private systems in balance. Some of the programs that give identity to Connecticut's policies in private higher education include: (1) presenting grants to individual independent institutions for each Connecticut student educated; and (2) a statewide talent assistance program involving private and public institutions to seek out disadvantaged, especially black and Spanish-speaking, students. In looking ahead to the interface of public and private higher education, the evidence seems to be increasing that public funding for private higher education is an excellent investment. (Author/PG)
