Exploratory Study of Liberal Arts Colleges

Study of five independent liberal arts colleges to which substantial grants have been made by the National Science Foundation and other granting agencies in scientific fields, and fave otherwise comparable colleges which have received no substantial support of this type. ABSTACT: Study of five independent liberal arts colleges to which substantial grants have been made by the National Science Foundation and other granting agencies in scientific fields, and fave otherwise comparable colleges which have received no substantial support of this type. Purpose is to compare changes in curricular offering, quality of facilities, expenditures for buildings and equipment, leaves of absence and other factors that contribute to educational quality. In this exploratory study, PI hopes to discover the effects on colleges of large gpvernment and corporate subsidies in the sciences as contrasted with fractional support for the humanities and the social sciences. By establishing techniques in a study of small institutions, he hopes to prepare the way for studies later of large private and state universities where most serious effects of imabalance between the sciences and the humanitities exist.
