Anyone who has taken the pains to follow educational direction and administrative action during the past two years will recognize that one of the most important current tendencies in higher education is the desire to obliterate the sharp distinction between college life and life thereafter. The educational program is being directed to service continuously throughout the life of the alumnus. Higher institutions are becoming increasingly the source to which the alumnus turns when he discovers that he needs further training to improve his economic condition or to enrich his personal life. This biennial survey on higher education focuses specifically on the following eight topics: (1) Human product of the colleges; (2) High schools and the colleges; (3) College cooperation and consolidation; (4) Special periods and services; (5) College religious and social life; (6) Improvement of instruction; (7) Research and graduate work; and (8) Financing higher education.
