National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, Washington, DC.; American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
Recommendations for national action in higher education are offered by the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. The joint policy statement focuses on issues that the federal government needs to consider including: how to broaden educational opportunity for all Americans; how to increase knowledge and make it more useful through research; how to extend higher education resources beyond the campuses to more people; how to improve cooperative links between the federal government and institutions of higher education; and how to strengthen the capacity of American higher education to help solve such problems as hunger and poverty in the developing nations. The historically black public colleges and affirmative action and equal opportunity, the urban university and a national program for urban action, the arts and humanities, energy and natural resources, federal health programs and policy, and food and agriculture research and education are also considered.
