Summary

The author of this paper predicts that by 1990, enrollments in metropolitan institutions of higher education will increase by 100% and that costs for these same institutions will increase by 200%. In other words, statistics reveal that in 1968 there were 4.1 million students enrolled in metropolitan colleges and universities and that the cost at that time was approximately $8 billion; by 1990 enrollment is projected to reach 8.2 million and cost $24 billion. In examining this projection it was found that the results depended heavily on a number of basic assumptions: (1) there will be a large increase in the number of disadvantaged students--particularly urban blacks and Spanish Americans--enrolling in higher education; (2) an increasing number of married women will resume their education after raising their families; (3) an increasing number of men and women employed full-time will continue for a large portion of their lives in organized educational programs; (4) a large number of technical and vocational programs will be upgraded to the college level; and (5) automation and mechanization will continue to reduce jobs available--a factor that will encourage many to stay in college.
