Economics of Higher Education: Are We Overeducating by Admitting Too Many Students? [microform] : [Comments by the President of Indiana University] / John W. Ryan

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

While some critics may point out the overabundance of college graduates in proportion to available jobs, Indiana is not admitting too many students at the higher education level. New technology has increased the demand for new occupations and a better educated work force. Emphasis must shift from quantitative growth--in student numbers, programs, and institutional complexity--to qualitative improvement. Universities cannot ignore the growing numbers of individuals returning to school, nor can they deny the function of higher education to teach people how to maintain skills over a lifetime. (BJD)
