Universities and Transnational Approaches to the Solution of World Problems.
Smallwood, Osborn T., Ed.
The Midwestern Conference for Visiting Fulbright-Hays Scholars, held at Ohio State University, May 14-16, 1973, was designed to be a forum for international cultural exchange of ideas between scholars with transnational interests. The theme was "Universities and Transnational Approaches to the Solution of World Problems." One primary objective of the conference was to give this group of academicians an opportunity to make a contribution to an ongoing discussion of contemporary relevance. Emphasized was the need for the development of a community of scholars who would be able to free themselves from national and cultural bias. The establishment of the United Nations University was the primary thrust of the lectures and discussions. The reports include articles concerned with the United Nations University, its staffing, programs, students, and transcultural emphasis. Discussion reports include environmental pollution problems, university studies toward the achievement of world peace, the uses of modern communication media, and human resource development. Appendices include conference programs, participants, committee members, and photographs of conference participants. (Author/PG)
