Whatever Happened to the College Enrollment Crisis?
Harrington, Paul E.; Sum, Andrew M.
Academe, v74 n5 p17-22 Sep-Oct 1988
The 1980s college enrollment crisis never materialized because demographics are not the sole determinant of enrollment trends. The actual employment and earnings experiences of graduates will heavily influence the economic well-being of most postsecondary institutions. If private investment in postsecondary education remains high, enrollments will stabilize. (MSE)
