During the period of 1970-2010 in American higher education, the burden of funding has shifted in proportion from the federal government, to the state government and, ultimately, to students and parents. Not surprisingly, during this same period, the relationship between the student and the institution shifted from beneficiary of federal and state support to payee and consumer of education. Given this change from higher education as a public good to an individual good, there has been an increasing demand for accountability and transparency from parents and students, as well as legislators and governmental bodies.
