Citing the decrease in state funding as a major influence, they examine changes in the past 30 years, why they occurred, and their effect on graduation rates, as well as the importance of tenured faculty, the impact of more adjunct instructors, and experiences in 10 individual states. The final section examines the "privatization" of public universities, and what types of federal policies need to be put in place. Two of the papers have been published previously in other versions."@en ;
