A Classification of Institutions of Higher Education: A Technical Report. 1994 Edition.
Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, Princeton, NJ.
This new edition of the Carnegie Classification of Higher Education groups American colleges and universities according to their missions and similarity of their programs and purposes. In this 1994 edition, for the first time, institutions are classified according to the highest level of degree conferred, and a new category is introduced--tribal colleges and universities. A foreword by Ernest L. Boyer reveals trends in higher education as indicated by changes in the classification. Preliminary figures and tables offer data on percentage of institutions within each classification area, enrollment by type of institution, and changes in enrollment over time. Part I then lists public and private institutions by state within the following classification areas: research universities (levels I and II); doctoral universities (levels I and II); master's (comprehensive) colleges and universities (levels I and II); baccalaureate (liberal arts) colleges I; baccalaureate colleges II; associate of arts colleges; and specialized institutions (religion and theology, medical, other health professions, engineering and technology, business and management, art, music, design, law, teachers colleges, and tribal colleges and universities). An index lists institutions alphabetically, along with their respective classifications. (JDD)
