A Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. 1987 Edition.
Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, Princeton, NJ.
Statistics classifying American colleges and universities according to their educational functions and missions are included. Rather than creating a hierarchy, this information groups institutions by shared characteristics. Changes in higher education are portrayed, and a continued growth in institutions of higher education is noted. There are tables with enrollment data and definitions of institutions of higher education. Statistics are given for doctorate-granting institutions (research universities I and II and doctorate-granting colleges and universities I and II); comprehensive universities and colleges I and II; liberal arts colleges I and II; two-year community, junior, and technical colleges; and a variety of specialized institutions (religion and theology, medical schools, other health professions, engineering and technology, business and management, law schools, teachers colleges, corporate-sponsored colleges, art, music, and design). Information is provided on the state in which each institution is located and the status of the institution (public or private) as well as the number of schools in each state and enrollment data. A classification index of universities and colleges is provided. (SM)
