Private Higher Education. Second Annual Report on Financial and Educational Trends in the Private Sector of American Higher Education.
Bowen, Howard R.; Minter, W. John
Current needs and trends are reviewed for makers of state and national policy, and for campus officials in gauging the condition of their own institutions. Attention is focused on measuring qualitative variations, as suggested by changes in program, concern for innovation, faculty performance, student attitudes, etc. An effort was made to determine how the institution looks from different perspectives, including that of a senior member of the faculty and several administrative officers. More attention is also given to analysis of the condition of the participating institutions individually than was done in the first report in this series. Topics covered here include: enrollment and admissions; faculty and other staff; content and quality of educational program; curricular offerings; operating revenues and expenditures; assets, liabilities, and net worth; and special topics relating to finance.
