The standard reference work on higher education in the U.S. describes over 1,450 accredited 4-year colleges and universities, with briefer descriptions of over 100 professional schools. This reference work now includes a section on consortia of postsecondary institutions listing members and cooperative programs. A directory of statewide coordinating boards of higher education gives names, addresses, and directors' names of each board. Information about each institution is organized under the following headings; history, governing board, calendar, characteristics of freshmen, admission, degree requirements, special academic programs, student life, ROTC, graduate work, degrees conferred, fees 1971-72, student financial aid 1970-71, departments and teaching staff, enrollment, foreign students, publications, library, finances, buildings and grounds, administration, and a separate description of each major division within a university.
