Daxner, Michael, Ed.; Smith, Hoke L., Ed.
This document presents six papers given at an international conference on educational policymaking and the relationship between the state and the university particularly in light of political developments in Europe and the partnership between the Western European and North American scholarly communities. The first paper, "State University: Agent or Agency?" (Hoke Smith), considers the essential nature of the university and the essence of scholarship.

Caret) describes partnership programs of Towson State University, Maryland, with business and government. The next paper, "Scientific Expertise or How Universities Attain Public Authority" (Michael Daxner) explores the challenges and evolving role for universities in society. The fifth paper, "Government Intervention in Universities: Autonomy/Accountability" (Henry Wasser) looks at European universities' evolving relationships with the state, and the final paper, "The Selective Enhancement of Quality in Florida's Postsecondary Education: Tensions between Excellence and Parity" (Robert O.
