Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1983 
193 p. 

Results of a study of financial conditions and the functioning of 93 U.S. colleges and universities are presented. Institutional data were collected every third year between 1967-1968 and 1979-1980. Samples of faculty at each institution were surveyed in the late 1960s or early 1970s and again in 1980-1981. The Educational Testing Service's Institutional Functioning Inventory (IFI) was administered to the schools, and 13 colleges were visited. Results include the following: the average college had considerably more purchasing power at the close of the decade, but most of these resources had been used up by enrollment increases; the increase of federal funds was matched by declines in state support at public institutions and by declines in tuition and private gifts and grants at private colleges; and the decline in faculty pay in the 1970s matches almost exactly the increases in pay of the 1960s. Findings regarding changes in the higher education environment, indications of institutional effectiveness, and faculty perceptions are discussed, and recommendations for administrators and public officials are offered. An analysis of trends in educational demand and college income and expenditures is included as background information. Participating institutions are listed by Carnegie classification and IFI scale items are listed. (SW)
