Scope and Content

This box contains the book State Higher Educational Institutions of Iowa, published in Washington D.C. in 1916  by the Government Printing Service.  It’s a survey of all the institutions of higher education in Iowa to answer these questions:

  1. “… Is each of the three higher institutions occupying fully and exclusively the sphere which properly belongs to it?”
  2. “Are there general defects in policy or management … which have prevented [their] proper development?”
  3. “[Is] it desirable to [provide for] their physical expansion?”
  4. “[Are there] new activities … which any one of the Institutions should take up?”
  5. “… What occupations and industries promise to be most important to Iowa in the near future? Is there already ample provision for training in these lines, or should the … Institutions give special attention to training in some of them?”
