Business-Higher Education Forum, Washington, DC.
Discussions of the Business-Higher Education Forum winter 1984 meeting are summarized. The Forum is a select group of about 80 chief executive officers from the largest corporations and higher education institutions in the United States. Welcoming remarks delivered by Arizona Governor Bruce E. Babbitt briefly address Arizona's future in technology. John Young, who serves as Chairman of The President's Commission on Industrial Competitiveness, reviews the Commission's progress to date and its key concerns, including the cost of capital for American companies and tax policy and human resources. The question of whether America's business education is responsive to the needs of business is addressed by James P. Baughman of General Electric Company. The co-author of "In Search of Excellence," Thomas J. Peters, suggests that innovation, quality, and courtesy are major success factors for American business. Three views of education in the 1980s are expressed by Procter & Gamble Company Chairman Owen B. Butler, University of California President David Pierpont Gardner, and University of North Carolina President William Friday. Additionally, a discussion of Forum reports is briefly summarized, along with a report on the Canadian Corporate Higher-Education Forum.
