The Threats to Liberal Arts Colleges.
Daedalus, v128 n1 p27-45 Win 1999
Examines a number of trends in higher education that threaten to undermine the status, role, and even existence of liberal arts colleges. Looks at competitive marketing, merit-based student financial aid, private support for state schools, and the heavy influence of price on student choice. Keeping these factors in mind can allow universities to compete more effectively for the best students. (MSE)
