Institutional Strategies in Comparative Educational Administration.
Atkinson, Gene; Spuck, Dennis W.
This report reviews certain problems of international transfer of technology in the field of administration of higher education within the context of current theory about change processes and examines one university's programs in this area. The focus of attention in this report is the Cooperative Graduate Education Program initiated in 1974 between the University of Houston (UH) and the Autonomous University of Guadalajara (UAG). Original program goals for UAG included improvement of instruction and administration; the UH goals were multicultural experiences for faculty and students (including future school administrators and bilingual teachers) and research opportunities. Through the analysis of one operational training model, selected aspects of change theory are illustrated and questions are identified that will require further study. (Author/MLF)
