The Higher Education Community and Federal Legislation.
It may be a mistake to speak of the "higher education community" as a synonym for the Washington-based higher education organizations associated with advocating public policy for American higher education. These organizations represent different views and constituencies including students, states, and institutions such as liberal arts colleges, community colleges, state four-year colleges, and public and private universities. So different are the interests the associations attempt to represent that they are frequently unable to agree among themselves on any but the broadest propositions. On specific questions the associations will frequently part company. Hence, they are likely to differ on the question of whether or not students at state institutions should be expected to bear a greater share of the costs of their education, or the specific percentage of costs federal grants should be allowed to cover.
