University Resources for International Development.
Alter, Chester M.
In 1964, John W. Gardner outlined some criteria that should be appied in the selection of universities that would serve as AID contractors. These criteria were: (1) the extent to which the universities had developed their resources in the international field; (2) the caliber of the faculty in the key fields; (3) the extent of interdisciplinary work and programs at the insitituion; (4) available research resources relevant to development; (5) the administrative capacity to handle overseas projects; (6) relevant earlier experience in overseas work; (7) quality of personnel assigned to the specific project; and (8) the degree of university commitment to this project. In Part 1, institutions are divided into 8 categories - land grant, other public institutions, public university branches, large private institutions, liberal arts colleges, large engineering and science institutions, junior colleges, and consortia - and comments are made about the extent to which these various types fulfill the criteria. Part 2 discusses the resources and capabilities of major types of consortia, and other cooperative groups. Part 3 discusses the impact of international involvement on the university. General comments and observations are made in Part 4. (AF)
