Common Concerns in Higher Education: An Italian-American Universities Project: Planned for the Permanent Conference of Italian University Rectors.
Herge, Henry C., Ed.
The proceedings of Phase I of the Italian University Rectors' Exchange Project, which took place on the campuses of three American universities, are presented. The papers and discourses are categorized as to (1) those that have some bearing upon university governance, both in Italy and the United States, and (2) those that focus upon the academic program of the university. Selected statements of participants are included to supply an overview of the conference subject matter and to indicate the degree of commitment by leaders in Italian and American higher education in efforts to resolve the crisis in education. Part I of the proceedings concerns University Governance: Comparative Problems, and contains discussions of the following topics: Autonomy; University Planning and Development; Financing Higher Education; Decision-Making Bodies; Administrative Personnel: Recruitment and Training; University Structure and Function; and University Scientific Research. Part II relates to Academic Problems, with discussions of: Organization of Curriculums in Humanistic Fields; Organization of Curriculums in the Sciences; Professional Education; The Private University: An Overview; The University's External Relations; Faculty-Student Relations; and Miscellanea. Three appendices present the program and rosters of the attendees. (DB)
