The NLII Vision: Implications for Systems and States

Wednesday, January 1, 1997


This is a pre-symposium paper written for the November 1997 National Learning Infrastructure Initiative-State Higher Education Executive Officers symposium on the Public Policy Implications of the Information Technology Revolution. The paper focuses on the impact of IT developments on the way in which we regulate, organize and finance higher education in the United States. It discusses the nature of the competitive environment brought about through digital networks, the variety of change strategies open to states and systems of higher education, and the kinds of financing policies that can lead to cost-effective delivery of higher education to future generations of students. This paper was originally published by Educom.
