Control of Tax-Supported Higher Education in the United States

Excerpt

The present study of the states' control of American tax- supported higher education was conceived by the late Dr. Henry Suzzallo, president of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, and it was planned and in part pursued under his acute and kindly guidance. His untimely death on September 25, 1933 occurred in the midst of an important reworking of materials in accordance with his suggestions. Funds for the study were provided by Carnegie Corporation of New York.

The need of defining the relation of the state to higher education has long been apparent. The present publication of the Foundation may be regarded as the third in an attempt partly to fill this need. In 1933, a volume prepared in the United States Office of Education by Dr. Fred J. Kelly, chief, and Mr. John H. McNeely, research assistant, Division of Colleges and Professional Schools, and entitled The State and Higher Education--Phases of Their Relationship, was published by the Foundation in cooperation with the Office of Education. The second work, Charters and Basic Laws of Selected American Universities and Colleges, by President Edward C. Elliott, of Purdue University, and Dr. M. M. Chambers, honorary fellow of Ohio State University, appeared under the joint auspices of Purdue University and the Foundation in January, 1934. The third study, Dr. Hill's volume, while by no means designed to fit into any doctrinaire scheme of research, finds its place in the Foundation's series of supplementary publications by virtue of both subject and treatment. These three volumes bear relationships one to another, and all of them are related, though in very different ways, to the work of the National Advisory Committee on Education, which, in 1931, issued under Dr. Suzzallo's direction through the American Council on Education its very comprehensive report, Federal Relations to Education, of which Part I contains the Committee Findings and Recommendations and Part II the Basic Facts and analyses.
