Study Abroad. The Study of Education at Stanford. Report to the University.
Stanford Univ., CA.
This report, the ninth in a series of ten, is presented by the Steering Committee, the Study of Education at Stanford. The series, based on the concept that education should be a continuous process of discovery throughout life, sets forth recommendations for strengthening the academic enterprise of Stanford University. In this report the Committee on Study Abroad, which considers the Stanford Overseas Campus Program to be the best arrangement of any US university for study abroad, concerns itself with the importance of overseas study to undergraduate education at Stanford. Part I contains the Committee's recommendation which center around 5 judgments about the future of the program and are designed to exploit the educational opportunity that the program represents. It is proposed that the program be freed from any connection with Stanford's undergraduate General Studies Program and that more flexible and diversified policies be followed at the overseas campuses. To this end the Committee recommends a separate committee for each overseas campus that would establish policies for that campus. Part 2 describes the Committee's work during 1967 and 1968. Part 3 discusses and presents recommendations for the 5 major overseas campuses: in Germany, France, Italy, Austria, and England. Part 4 deals with the 3 special language centers.
