Summary
The impact of recent national economic trends on both public and private institutions is discussed. Tuition and student charges have continued to increase to help meet escalating institutional expenditures, much of which is due to national inflation. It is contended that there is much evidence of an abating of these economic conditions, as well as encouraging signs that higher education has passed through the financial crisis of the early 1970's. However, there still is a "confidence" crisis afflicting higher education, which may not diminish until institutions spell out more clearly to their various funding public how the student is being served. A set of comprehensive indicators of institutional health, to be developed nationwide with federal and state cooperation, is advocated that should receive the highest legislative priority. (LBH)
