A description, analysis, and assessment of diversity in American higher education is offered based on data collected since 1960 from more than 600 colleges and universities. The value of different kinds of colleges is discussed in chapter one, followed by discussions of what makes institutions different, how colleges are becoming more alike, ways of measuring diversity, and changes in institutions. Among the trends identified are changes in levels of diversity in the major areas of institutional control, degrees offered, proportion of minority students, and enrollment size. The effects of those changes on social mobility, political needs of interest groups, range of student choices, program effectiveness, and institutional survival and adaptability are examined. An extensive list of recommendations to policymakers and administrators is offered for encouraging variation, which is attained differently by institutions in stable and unstable environments. Policy and program changes are advocated to maintain and enhance the diversity that is critical to the stability of U.S. higher education.
