Graduate Education. The Study of Education at Stanford. Report to the University.
Stanford Univ., CA.
To undertake a comprehensive study and review of educational programs at Stanford University, President Sterling in 1967 appointed the Steering Committee for the Study of Education at Stanford. This report on graduate education is the 7th in a series of 10 issued by the Committee. A discussion of selected principles and philosophies in graduate education is followed by a recommendation calling for the establishment of a Commission on Graduate Education. This Commission would be charged with conducting a study of Stanford's problems in graduate education with special emphasis on PhD programs. Twelve further recommendations call for the modification or elimination of certain present and the establishment of new procedures within the graduate schools. In lieu of formal recommendations, 4 proposals for further consideration are submitted dealing with possible procedural modifications that the Committee was unable to analyze in adequate depth. Extensive appendices contain memos, statements, proposals, and minor reports submitted to the Committee during the course of the study, as well as specific research findings of the Committee. Copies of this report, or the set of 10, are available from the Study of Education at Stanford, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305.
