Summary

Higher education currently faces more than a financial crisis: it faces five severe challenges to its performance and purposes: (1) public confidence in the value of a college education is weak; (2) educational demand is shifting from liberal arts to vocational courses; (3) teaching must be able to keep up with the rapid expansion of knowledge; (4) the student profile is changing considerably; and (5) the community college is becoming a potent educational force while small private schools are losing enrollment. Management for results, by a system the federal government's General Accounting Office calls performance auditing, may be a key to the survival of college and universities. Performance auditing requires management to clearly define and publish its objectives, develop standards and measurements of performance, obtain complete and reliable information for control, and determine whether or not costs can be reduced while maintaining or increasing productivity. This kind of audit may be particularly significant for private colleges and universities, where there is some concern that government is not treating private higher education equitably. (Author/MSE)
