As we enter the mid-eighties, higher education is faced with deepening crises stemming from declines in both funding and enrollment and from rapidly changing social needs. This volume of essays, contributed by distinguished scholars from various disciplines, identifies and discusses the many problems that will require attention in the coming decades if our colleges and universities are to continue to supply quality educational opportunities on a broad scale. In seeking solutions to these problems, the authors stress the need for a realistic appraisal of the policymaking system. It is emphasized that educators and policymakers will need to take into account the levels at which political and policy-making activity occur and the complex political interrelationships existing among the different levels of institutional, governmental, and public authority.
