A Study of the Dynamics of Inter-Institutional Cooperation for International Education Development. Final Report.
Hoopes, David S.; And Others
The purpose of this study was to increase understanding of the nature and processes of interinstitutional cooperation in higher education, particularly as related to international education development, and to suggest guidelines for the improvement of cooperative endeavors. The study dealt with the experience of the RCIE (Regional Council for International Education) and 10 selected member institutions. The RCIE is a cooperative association founded in 1959 in response to a newly identified need for colleges and universities to expand the international dimensions of education on their campuses. Chapter I examines the national and international framework for international development and interinstitutional cooperation. Chapter II describes the objectives, structure, programs, and services of the Council, and Chapter III the Council's origin and development. Chapter IV deals with international education on member campuses: the patterns of international education development, factors affecting international education, and the place of the RCIE on campus. Chapter V presents an analysis of RCIE operations, and the functions of the Council are discussed in Chapter VI. (AF)
