Ten Public Policy Issues for Higher Education in 1994. AGB Public Policy Series No. 94-1.
Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges
This publication addresses 10 "front-burner" public policy issues in higher education for 1994 which were identified and discussed by higher education policy experts in two meetings during the fall of 1993. A single page at the beginning of the document presents all 10 issues in a format designed for easy photocopying or overhead projector presentation. This is followed by a series of two-page sections that treat each issue individually with a box presenting the issue "at a glance," a summary of significant points for discussion, and recommendations for further reading. The following issues are addressed: (1) the budget squeeze over competition for public funds; (2) continued growth in demand for oversight and accountability of institutions; (3) pressures to increase access, productivity and cost containment; (4) student-aid reforms brought on by new legislation; (5) changing research priorities with slowed federal funding; (6) race and diversity issues; (7) the national health care debate and its effect on institutions of higher education; (8) continued public scrutiny of and pressure to reform intercollegiate athletics; (9) involvement by institutions of higher education in public school reform; and (10) elimination of mandatory faculty retirement ages in 1994.
