Trends and issues in higher education are discussed in six papers from the 1983 annual meeting of the American Association of Presidents of Independent Colleges and Universities. In "Innovation Versus Reform in Higher Education" Alston Chase reviews trends, including citizenship instruction, the general education movement, a focus on science, emphasis on scholarship, and an elective-based curriculum and consumerism. Marguerite B. Corbally's article, "Support Your Local President," describes aspects of the college presidency, based on interviews with college staff and trustees. "Student Discipline at Christian Colleges," by Richard F. Gross, considers assumptions and principles of a Christian approach to student discipline. In "The Regulation of Private Education through Taxation," James P. Guenther examines public policy issues concerning taxation and exemptions from federal income tax for colleges, as well as the relationship between colleges and the government. "Relating Faith and Learning" by Earl J. McGrath discusses the responsibility for making values part of education and the roles of church-related colleges. Finally, Robert H. Mounce's article, "The President's Role in Church-College Relations," considers the mission of the college and church and the president's role in promoting church-college relations. (SW)
