A New Way of Classifying Colleges Elates Some and Perturbs Others.
Basinger, Julianne
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n49 pA31,34,42 Aug 11 2000
Explains the new Carnegie classification system for institutions of higher education, a sweeping revision that emphasizes teaching, focusing on the number and types of degrees an institution awards rather than research or selectivity in admissions. The biggest change is for universities that award doctorates--these are now grouped into only two categories: doctoral extensive and doctoral intensive. (DB)
