Public and Private Financing of Higher Education. Shaping Public Policy for the Future. American Council on Education/Oryx Press Series on Higher Education.
Finney, Joni E., Ed.; Callan, Patrick M., Ed.
This book on the financing of higher education is divided into two parts; the first analyzes national trends and the second focuses on the financing of higher education in five states--California, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, and New York. Three major changes in higher education finance are noted: first, a shift in responsibility away from public and governmental sources to students, families, and institutions; second, a shift from grants to loans as the predominant form of student financial assistance; and, third, an increasing reliance on allocated tuition fees as a source of student financial assistance. The eight chapters are: (1) "The Price of Passive Resistance in Financing Higher Education" (Brian M. Roherty); (2) "The Changing Landscape: Higher Education Finance in the 1990s" (David W. Breneman and Joni E. Finney); (3) "Shaping the Future" (Robert Zemsky and Gregory R. Wegner); (4) "California: Financing Higher Education Amid Policy Drift" (Mario C. Martinez and Thad Nodine); (5) "Florida: Protecting Access and Anticipating Growth" (Yolanda Sanchez-Penley, Mario C. Martinez, and Thad Nodine); (6) "Michigan: Fiscal Stability and Constitutional Autonomy" (Mario C. Martinez and Thad Nodine); (7) "Minnesota: Uncertainty in a Time of Constrained Resources" (Joan E. Sundquist); and (8) "New York: Politics and the Funding of Higher Education" (Kathy Reeves Bracco and Yolanda Sanchez-Penley). An appendix lists participants in the National Roundtable on the Public and Private Finance of Higher Education on which the third chapter is based. (Individual chapters contain references.) (DB)
