Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1966 
32 p. 

One of the most influential factors leading to the strengthening of the states' role in higher education is the coordinating agency which acts in liaison between both the state and national capitols and the universities. The states continue to experiment with 3 types of coordinating systems: the voluntary council consisting of public college and university presidents and board members; the single governing-coordinating board for all state supported institutions of higher learning; and (most prevalent) a board, composed of citizens who do not directly administer any public institution, that is superimposed over the governing boards of individual institutions or systems. The movement toward creation of coordinating boards of citizen members having substantial powers has bee n accelerated because (1) the agencies are exercising greater political leadership in formulating and advocating policies for developing and expanding higher education (2) more and more federal grant programs are being oriented toward states rather than institutions (3) private institutions are becoming more involved in public policy making and coordination for all colleges and universities. Despite the attendant risks to the coordinating agency or individual members, the agency must seek a position of political leadership in order to promote the long range interests of higher education. An annotated bibliography is included. (JS)
