The preparation of young men and women in American universities and colleges for the numerous activities and responsibilities that engross the lives of the people has become one of the major enterprises of the country. This is evidenced not only by the remarkable growth in the number and size of higher educational institutions but also by the increasing seriousness of effort that is being put forth by these institutions to improve the quality of their product. This chapter of the "Biennial Survey of Education in the United States," concerned with the topic of college and university education, is divided into two parts. Part I: Growth and coordination of higher educational institutions contains the following sections: (1) Aspects of growth; (2) Problems resulting from expansion; (3) Higher educational associations; (4) Coordinating agencies for research; and (5) Surveys. Part II: Emerging types of colleges and universities covers: (1) Recent decisions; and (2) Present trends in higher education. (Contains 6 tables and 10 footnotes.)
