The NEA 1992 Almanac of Higher Education.
Robbins, Rebecca L., Ed.
This publication presents 1992 higher education and National Education Association (NEA) facts and statistics, updating what appeared in earlier editions and including for the first time tables from three recent studies on faculty. The book arranges information in four sections. The first, "The Academy: A Statistical Profile," covers higher education enrollments, endowments, state and federal appropriations, and current trends in the receipt of undergraduate and graduate degrees. Included here are data on faculty perceptions and new information on faculty evaluations and diversity. The second section, "Review of the Year," offers a look at educational, political, judicial, and extra-curricular developments over the past year as well as a selected listing of new publications in the area of higher education. The third section, "Resources and References," lists forthcoming academic meetings, higher education journals and reference aids, and fellowship sources for higher education faculty. The final section, "NEA and Higher Education," includes an essay on the history of the association, NEA policy and advisory statements, the legislative program, the current financial crisis in higher education, and various aspects of NEA functioning (the Standing Committee on Higher Education, journal, membership and benefits, and bargaining units).
