The Future of the American Council on Education. A Report on Its Governmental and Related Activities.
Honey, John C.; Crowley, John C.
Beginning with an examination of how the ACE's federal relationships might be strengthened, the report evolved into a study of such broad questions as the overall role and objectives of the organizations. Attention is directed to the makeup of its membership, the composition of his board of directors and the functions of the board, relationships to the other higher education associations in Washington, and the ACE's own internal organization. Consideration is given to the operations of the commissions, governmental affairs, data and research, human resources development, political development, and communications and publications. A reappraisal of other ACE programs and their financial implications is also presented. It is concluded that, while considerable dissatisfaction and distress was found among those interviewed with respect to the present and recent roles played by the ACE, there was also virtual unanimity that this is an organization that is badly needed and that must function effectively.
