About This Issue

Public Universities in the United States
A typical state university enrolls tens of thousands of students and offers hundreds of courses of study.

What is a Large, Private Research University
The availability of private funding enables private universities to step off in bold new directions of inquiry.

U.S. Community Colleges
Two-year colleges are an attractive alternative for students seeking a hometown environment and lower costs.

Strength Out of Diversity
Small private colleges focus on teaching and on interaction between students and faculty.

Minority Serving Institutions
Organizations place special emphasis on minority students, including African Americans, Hispanics, and American Indians.

Historically Black Colleges and Universities Remain Relevant
An educator discusses the unique role of HBCUs in affirming identity among African-American students.

Religiously Affiliated Colleges
Religious institutions believe their tradition of learning through faith is "value added" to higher education.

Specialty Institutions
Colleges that concentrate on teaching the arts, business, or military studies are just a few examples of schools with focused curricula.
