Discusses the effects of financial constraints of the 1980s and 1990s which are being felt in all aspects of institutions of higher education. Looks into the differences and similarities in institutional leaders′ opinions with respect to environmental concerns based on the size, age, location, and sector of their institutions. Environmental concerns include government grants, inflation, enrolment issues and declining resources. Reports slight differences. Implies that all Alberta, Canada, institutions of higher education, irrespective of their size, age, location and sector are experiencing similar problems and perhaps in the same magnitude. Concludes that there is not a deliberate shift in government funding in favour of one institutional sector over the other. Suggests that institutional leaders within a system of higher education should search for ways to form a united front, educate the general public as to the situation of higher education, and seize the opportunity presented by the hard times to unfold a new vision and chart a new course for higher education.
