Guide to American Higher Education Policy-Making.
Stauffer, Thomas M.
A guide, designed especially for non-American educators, presents information to promote understanding of the U.S. policy-making process in higher education. Levels for policy analysis concern individuals, institutions, groups of institutions, state and local levels, national level, transnational level, and comparison of countries. Representative policy issues can be viewed from the perspective of institutions, state governments, national governments, and transnational levels. For each of these levels of analysis, issues and types of agencies and concerned parties are listed. Institutions are listed under the following categories: U.S. agencies, state and regional agencies, associations, university and research centers, unions, international organizations, special study groups, and other organizations. U.S. legislation pertaining to higher education is also listed. Background reading materials are provided for the following areas: institutional, state policy, national policy, transnational, periodicals, bibliographies, data sources, and special reports. (SW)
