"An invaluable resource for any college and university striving tomeet the National Cost Commission's call to make what colleges doand what it costs more 'transparent' to the public."
—Jacqueline E. King, director, federal policy analysis, AmericanCouncil on Education

Middaugh firstdraws from a research study funded by TIAA-CREF's CooperativeResearch Grant Program and the Fund for Postsecondary Educationwithin the U.S. Department of Education.
