The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Targeted Subsidization of Postsecondary Education Enrollment in Minnesota: A Policy Evaluation.

Hearn, James C., Hideki Sano, and Susan Urahn.

Minnesota's policy in the early 1980s of raising tuition for postsecondary education while increasing the money available for need-based student financial aid is examined.
Did the policy affect high school students' expectations and plans for further education? Did it affect their access to education? The study looks at the whole picture of equity in financing postsecondary education. A CURA Reporter article in June 1986 summarizes this study.
