Summary

This paper represents a brief version of a report to be published later this year and summarizes the "Institutions in Transition" project. Part I involved an extensive review of US Office of Education data from 1940 to the present. Major findings were that (1) the rapid increase in the number of students in higher education has been primarily accommodated by steadily expanding public institutions; (2) state institutions have moved more rapidly than other types offering the PhD degree; (3) American education is becoming overwhelmingly coeducational; and (4) between 1949 and 1966, 898 new institutions were created. Part II dealt with the results of a questionnaire to which 1230 institutions responded. Questions were asked about the institution's openness to students from different ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, institutional "effectiveness", student participation in decision making, school spirit, faculty attitude towards innovation, faculty autonomy, cooperative and interinstitutional programs, and important changes that had occurred on the campus. In terms of the changes reported, there was little difference between public and private institutions. Large institutions were subjected to more pressure for change than smaller ones. (AF)
