Are Church-Related Colleges Losing Students? Topical Paper Number 6.
McGrath, Earl J.; Neese, Richard C.
Enrollment trends at church-related colleges during 1965-1975 were studied to determine to what extent they continue to attract American youth. It appears that the present condition and future prospects of these institutions is not as precarious as some observers have asserted, and that the educational and fiscal health of church-related colleges will in large part depend on their tenacity in holding to the basic religious, spiritual, and moral principles that animated their establishment. Church support and government financial aid to students who choose these colleges and universities will also be important in assuring their survival and educational quality. But the schools will have to represent an attractive option to young people in order to compete successfully. (Author/MSE)
