Toward Education with a Global Perspective: A Report of the National Assembly on Foreign Language and International Studies (Racine, Wisconsin, October 30- November 1, 1980).
Association of American Colleges, Washington, DC.
The recommendations and conclusions of a conference on globalizing American higher education are summarized. In the area of international studies, the recommendations focus on curriculum development, faculty incentives, administrative structure, interinstitutional linkages, and evaluation. In the area of foreign languages, it is recommended that second language proficiency pervade the higher education community. To achieve that goal, emphasis is laid once again on faculty incentives and on contacts between academia and other levels of education, government, and the public. In general, the development of international awareness and foreign language competency is viewed as the outcome of an effort to introduce global principles into education as a whole, so that they are no longer something "extra."
