It is the purpose of this survey to call attention to some of the more significant developments that have taken place in higher education between 1930 and 1936. It covers, to a considerable extent, the critical period of the economic depression and includes those years in which recovery and improvement in higher education have begun to be marked. It presents developments which have taken place during the period covered by the "Biennial Survey of Higher Education, 1934-36." The reaction of higher education to the depression is considered in some of its quantitative aspects in the statistical reports of the Office, but the results of the depression as it relates to education as a whole are considered in a separate chapter of the "Biennial Survey of Education." This bulletin is divided into eight sections, as follows: (1) The Harvard University Tercentenary; (2) Higher Education and the Economic Depression; (3) Administration and Control of Higher Education; (4) The Student Body; (5) The Teaching Staff; (6) College Organization and Instruction; (7) Graduate Study and Research; and (8) Professional Education. (Contains 11 tables and 39 footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
