Year-Round Operation of the University: An Analysis of Its Rationale, A Description of a Recent Study, and a Proposal for Synthesis.
Conference of Rectors and Principals of Quebec Universities, Montreal.
This study is comprised of three parts. The first part consists of a summary and analysis of arguments pro and contra year-round operation of the university. The second part makes a comparative analysis of the actual experience of year-round operation in three Canadian universities and five U.S. universities. The third part is a study proposal that would investigate the design of an organism within the university that would be involved in finding solutions to problems at the national and regional levels, and to problems concerning the university and its immediate environment. This organism would require year-round operation of the university and compulsory participation by all undergraduates as part of a "work/study" program. (Author)
