Morris, Alfred, Ed.; Sizer, John, Ed.
Resource allocation for higher education in England is addressed in 11 papers from a l982 Leverhulme seminar of the Society for Research into Higher Education. Major seminar questions include the following: whether higher education institutions should become less dependent upon public funds; the extent to which funds should flow through grants to institutions; whether contraction, adaptation, and change should be determined by market forces as demographic trends affect the demand for higher education; the resource allocation role of the University Grants Committee and the National Advisory Body for Local Authority Higher Education; and how institutions should allocate and manage their resources to maintain vitality and responsiveness to changing demands. Titles and authors are as follows: "Better the Dirigiste Devils We Know?" (John Sizer); "DES and Treasury" (Clive Booth); "Privatization and Market Mechanisms" (Alan Maynard); "Financial Support for Students" (Maureen Woodhall); "New Models for Funding Universities" (Peter Moore); "Resource Allocation Within the Public Sector" (John Pratt); "Funding Versus Validating" (Richard Lewis); "Resource Allocation Within Universities" (Geoffrey Sims); "Strategies for Survival" (John Fielden); "Terms of Employment" (Peter Knight); "Some Radical Proposals" (Alfred Morris).
