The Crisis of American Higher Education.
Wood, James L.; Valenzuela, Lorena T.
Thought & Action, v12 n2 p59-71 Fall 1996
Unless the higher education community itself, primarily students and faculty, responds immediately and forcefully to the issue of underfunding and widespread retrenchment, higher education as we know it will cease to exist. Problems include shrinking state financial and political support and absence of a compelling national security need. Conventional responses must be supplemented by newer strategies focusing on students' role. (MSE)
