Interinstitutional Cooperation in Higher Education.
Howard, Lawrence C., Ed.
This conference focused attention on the uses of interinstitutional cooperation as a device to strengthen developing institutions of higher education. The 30 contributors included social critics, members of foundations and federal agencies, and representatives of institutions in the Developing Colleges Program. (This program, Title III of the Higher Education Act of 1965, has financed 249 cooperative arrangements which have either linked a developing college to an established institution or developing colleges to each other.) The proceedings are divided into 7 major topics: 1) Interinstitutional Cooperation for the Established and Developing Colleges; 2) The Nature of Interinstitutional Cooperation; 3) Some Implications of Interinstitutional Cooperation for the Governance of Higher Education; 4) Interinstitutional Cooperation and the College Student; 5) Promoting Change through Interinstitutional Cooperation; 6) Interinstitutional Cooperation and the Future; and 7) Recommendations. The editor includes a commentary in each section and a bibliography in Section 2. He concludes that "interinstitutional cooperation among colleges of different levels of quality works and...should be dramatically expanded." Copies are available from Bureau of Higher Education Research, US Office of Education, Washington, D.C. 20202. (DS)
