The Outputs of Higher Education.
Breneman, David W.
Ford Policy Forum, p7-14 2001
Presents a review of efforts over the last several decades to assess the outputs of higher education, including economic and noneconomic, and public and private benefits. Recommends resisting the viewing of higher education merely in terms of its quantifiable economic returns because that line of reasoning diminishes its substantial intangible contributions to society.
