Impact of Federal Support of Science on the Publicly Supported Universities and Four-Year Colleges in Michigan.
Dressel, Paul L.; And Others
The 12 publicly supported universities and colleges of Michigan that, in cooperation with the National Science Foundation, sponsored and conducted this study were particularly interested in looking into the overlapping interests of the three public bodies most concerned with higher education--the local institutions themselves, the State of Michigan, and the federal government. The study is focused on a segment of higher education in which three levels of policymaking intersect in many important ways, mainly, the mechanisms and funding by which Federal agencies have been supporting a number of science activities on these twelve campuses over the period 1955-1966. The results presented in this report include quantitative facts as well as polls of the views of faculty, students, and administrators concerning all significant aspects of academic science--funding and funding mechanisms, institutional as well as federal, institutional management and development measures, faculty-administration relations, student training and enrollments, etc. Chapters cover the patterns of research support; some problems in financing science research; impact of funds on education; effects on administrative organization and practices; and major issues and policy problems. Statistical tables accompany the text. The supplement contains materials that deal with the methods and means by which the study was conducted and that provide additional information resulting from the study and suggestions for reading related studies.
