This new edition provides a basic reference document for those interested in the historical background, current status, and emerging patterns of state higher education structures. The document begins with an introductory essay and overview of the changing structure of state higher education leadership. This includes an explanation of the functions of coordination and governance, a description of the evolution and current status of state structures, an overview of trends and issues, and guidelines for evaluation and reorganization. Tables then display, state-by-state, the legal status, responsibilities, membership, and staffing of state coordinating and governing boards and agencies. Narrative profiles of each state's higher education structure are also provided. The document concludes with addresses and telephone numbers of higher education executive officers in each state. Information was obtained primarily from state higher education executives and their staffs in each state. (Contains 43 references.) (JDD)
