Independent Higher Education in Michigan. A Report from the Advisory Committee on Goal 4 of the State Plan for Higher Education in Michigan.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
This report represents an attempt to bring to the forefront the issues related to independent higher education in Michigan. Goal 4 concerns the methods by which the private institutions can be properly assisted. Recommendations include: (1) It is sound fiscal policy for Michigan to find ways to maximize utilization of existing facilities, public or independent, to provide higher educational opportunities at lowest cost to the taxpaying public. (2) Michigan's independent colleges and universities have made and continue to make a very significant contribution to the state's economy and general welfare. (3) The avoidance of duplication in higher education programming is particularly stressed. (4) The state legislature is urged to expand immediately on programs already begun to guarantee equal educational opportunity and economy of choice for every Michigan citizen. (5) Legislative programs should result in narrowing the tuition gap existing between public and independent institutions. Appendixes include tables covering degrees awarded in Michigan, topology of Michigan independent colleges and universities, percentage of enrollment distribution, Michigan student financial assistance services, enrollment projections, and degree reimbursement programs.
