Holmes, Jeff, Ed.
This booklet reports a conference concerning Canadian university problems, roles and priorities attended by leading Canadian, US and British administrators and faculty. Each of 6 presentations is followed by 2 or 3 critiques. The purposes of the conference were to assess the state of higher education in Canada and to identify the areas that require strengthening. The papers dealt with new definitions of higher education; the relationships among the acquisition, transmission and application of knowledge; the university as educator and as contributor to community services, and its research problems in natural and social sciences and the humanities. Many papers compared Canadian university problems to those of universities in other countries: the influence of politics and students; administration and faculty; financial support; professional specialization; and the role of colleges and universities in modern society. Also discussed were approaches to education -- liberal, professional or multivariate. Emphasis was placed on the complex interaction of research, instruction and community service. (WM)
