Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
The Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education, a separate organizational unit within HEW, is a grant-making organization that covers the entire range of postsecondary education and that funds policy-oriented and feasibility studies directly related to reform, innovation, and improvement. Directions for improvement are outlined in this report, and procedures for submitting proposals are given. The procedures must be cost-effective, have far-reaching impact, and have learner-centered change. The suggestions deal with: equal education opportunity and educational reform and innovation; career and professional training and new combinations of academic and experiential learning; institutions and programs based on the technology of communications; clarification of institutional priorities and purposes by changes in internal structure and operations; design of cost-effective methods of instruction and operation; institutional reform for individual needs; reforms in graduate education, structure of academic professions, and faculty recruitment and retention; and new institutions and programs for awarding credentials to individuals.
