Research on Higher Education: Current Studies and Suggestions for the Future.
Clark, Terry N.
Although there is an overwhelming amount of information on higher education, there are relatively few studies that seek to formulate a systematic theory grounded on empirical observation. This report deals primarily with those studies that are creating new knowledge and are moving toward formulation of some distinctive theories. Studies reviewed include those that investigate: (1) factors that help generate intellectual creativity; (2) college and university organization; (3) professional relationships and the role of professional organizations inside the universities; (4) the normative structure of the scientific community and its patterns of communication; (5) the interrelations between individual universities, and national university systems; and (6) interrelationships between institutions of higher education and national societies.
