A Comprehensive Proposal for Financing Higher Education in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Universities, Harrisburg.
The Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Universities, composed of 117 Pennsylvania colleges and universities--public and private, community colleges and complex universities, state-related universities and state-owned colleges, calls for public support for Pennsylvania private colleges. It recognizes that tuitions in the public sector should not be increased beyond their already high levels. The objectives of development and implementation of methods and systems for financing higher educational programs are: (1) public needs; (2) accountability; (3) quality and efficiency; (4) advanced planning; and (5) educational opportunity. Criteria for selecting methods of financing are: (1) diversity of choice; (2) functional accountability; (3) a commonwealth system; (4) sound management practices; (5) selectivity of support; (6) shared fiscal responsibility; (7) adaptability and flexibility; and (8) legal and constitutional concerns. The various methods of financing higher education-federal government, state government, student aid, and institutional aid--all have different implications. (Author/KE)
