Trends in Higher Education in the United States. No. 6. Implications for Undergraduate Colleges. A Review of Recent Literature. A Report to the Commission on the Future, the Lutheran Educational Conference of North America.
Pfnister, Allan O.
The Lutheran Education Conference of North America established its Commission on the Future in 1972 and developed a series of proposals for projects that would result in documents useful for planning among the colleges related to the Lutheran Church. At the request of the Commission an overview of the current status of higher education in the United States reflected in the contemporary literature was drawn up. In addition, the commission requested that this overview be particularly directed to the implications for planning for the Lutheran colleges. The supporting documents for this report are the five monographs that review recent developments in American higher education in terms of enrollment, students, governance, instructional programs, and finance. This document attempts to relate the general findings of the review of the literature to the 45 institutions affiliated with the American Lutheran Church, Lutheran Church in America, and the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod; and concentrates on the implications drawn from the literature for the future of private and church-affiliated institutions of higher education.
