International Programs of U.S. Colleges and Universities: Priorities for the Seventies.
Perkins, James A.
The thaw in the cold war, financial crisis, and rising visibility of serious domestic problems have combined to reduce support for international programs of US colleges and universities. This monograph examines circumstances behind the present crisis, reassesses the goals and structure of international programs, and suggests new directions such programs could take. Recommendations are made concerning specific aspects of international programs such as language and area studies, study abroad programs for American students, foreign students in the US, scholar exchanges, technical assistance, and the basic curriculum.
