Challenges, Solutions, and Themes

(p.3) 1 Introduction
Public No More
Stanford University Press

This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the solutions to the challenges facing public universities in the U.S. in light of declining state support. It highlights the unsustainability of dependence of state subsidies and argues that the recent cuts in public university funding are permanent and that it could significantly affect higher education. This chapter also considers the potential consequences of replacing state subsidies with tuition fees as sources of funding.

Keywords:   public universities, U.S., state subsidies, higher education, tuition fees
