Zakon o Visokom Skolstvu (The Higher Education Act).
Objave (Ljubljana), n2-3 p32-41 1969
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1500 words) of the Higher Education Act, the result of the development of higher education in Yugoslavia in 1968 and 1969. Some institutions were abolished, while others were merged. More student participation was provided for in the Act. The Act allows higher education institutions to group together to form associations, which are corporate bodies with legal status. Higher education institutions are responsible for the training of scientific research personnel, but are also expected to stimulate artistic endeavors. The course of study normally lasts four years at universities and art academies, and two years at colleges; requirements for both undergraduate and graduate degrees may be determined by each institution. The ranking of academic staff, the terms of office, the age limits, and other personnel qualifications are discussed in the Act. Some of the administrative functions of the various councils are discussed. The Act includes a separate section on the University of Ljubljana concerning its organization, administration, responsibilities, budget, and faculty. (Author/GDB)
