Global Dimensions in U.S. Education: The University.
This pamphlet, 1 in a series of 4 concerning international education, presents an examination of the major policy issues confronting higher education in the U.S. and in relating meaningfully to overseas societies. The recommendations for U.S. research overseas can be summarized in 4 major points: (1) U.S. scholars, universities, and donors have major responsibilities to each other as well as to the larger international scholarly community in the professional conceptualization, funding, and ethical conduct of international studies' research--particularly in the less developed countries. (2) There is a need to promote the internationalization of U.S. social science research through increased international collaboration and funding. (3) There is a need to promote communication and clearinghouse arrangements within the U.S., as well as on a world scale, relating to international social science research. (4) The strengthening or creation of social science data banks in the less developed countries should be promoted and merits the cooperative attention of scholars from different societies, including local scholars.
