Summary

The purpose of the seminar was to find some answers to, and a deeper understanding of the following questions. (1) What is the purpose or are the purposes of higher education? (2) What are the benefits of higher education to the individual and to society? (3) Can the outputs of higher education be named and measured? (4) Where is higher education going, where do we want it to go, and where does it need to go? Several issues were identified: (1) the summons to accountability by students, society, and the legislature; (2) flagging financial support; and (3) higher education's earlier overreaction to short-term needs. The papers in this publication deal generally with the problem of output. Papers by F. E. Balderston and John Vaizey survey the problem. The conceptual analysis of output is dealt with by David G. Brown, C. West Churchman, Alain C. Enthoven, and Kenneth S. Tollett. Some approaches to measurement of output are suggested by Alexander W. Astin, John E. Brandt, Robbin R. Hough, and John P. Miller. A bibliography and a list of participants are included. (AF)
