The colleges and universities of this country have made every effort to adjust their programs to help win the war. They are now fully cognizant of their great responsibility to help with those problems that are to follow the war. Problems in the field of education do not, however, fall into war versus postwar problems. Most of the problems which now confront institutions of higher education trying to adjust to postwar conditions have their roots in prewar situations. Therefore, this compilation of reports about postwar plans in the colleges and universities can best be characterized by the "Higher Education Looks Ahead," with no direct reference to the influence of the war. This bulletin discusses the following: (1) Forces and Agencies That Condition State and Local Planning; (2) State-wide Planning for Postwar Higher Education; (3) Institutional Organization for Planning; (4) Actions Taken and Proposed in Important Areas of Planning; and (5) Selected Institutional Plans. A bibliography is included. (Contains 1 table and 1 footnote.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
