University, Government, and the Foreign Graduate Student; A Summary of the Colloquium on the Foreign Graduate Student, Held at Wingspread, Racine, Wisconsin, March 30-31, 1967.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
This booklet contains a summary of the colloquium discussion including the major observations and recommendations, and three of the papers that were presented. The colloquium discussion focussed on a number of broad questions in relation to foreign graduate student programs: (1) prospects, assumptions, policies; and responsibilities from the standpoint of the graduate school; (2) the interplay in such programs between the university, on the one hand, and the government and other sponsoring agencies on the other; (3) problems of how relevant data might better be collected, processed and disseminated to improve the selection and screening of foreign graduate students; and (4) ways in which university policies in this area can be defined and communicated. The papers included in this volume are: "The Foreign Graduate Student: Old Assumptions, New Questions" by George P. Springer, "University and Government: The Views of the Foreign Graduate Student" by Daly C. Lavergne, and "An Appraisal of the Behavior of Universities in International Education" by Albert G. Sims. A list of the participants in the colloquium is included. (AF)
