Federal Institutional Grants for Instructional Purposes.
Association of American Colleges, Washington, DC.
The Association of American Colleges believes that the present pattern of federal spending for higher education through project grants should be supplemented by broad grants for instructional purposes to be expended at the discretion of the institution and suggests: (1) federal institutional grants should be made to colleges and universities as institutions of higher education serving the general welfare; (2) support should be available to all eligible institutions of higher education for expenditure at their discretion within the generally accepted definition of instructional services and departmental research; (3) institutional grants should support necessary quantitative expansion of higher education and should encourage, as well, qualitative improvement in instruction; and (4) to be eligible for an instructional support grant, the institution should be regionally accredited. In addition, the Association believes that federal institutional grants for the support of basic instruction offer the best prospect for sustaining and improving American colleges and universities.
