Internationalizing Higher Education: A United States Approach. Occasional Paper No. 13.
Sutton, Francis X.; And Others
Three papers concerned with internationalizing higher education in the U.S. are presented with a commentary giving a Swedish perspective. The first paper, The International Role of the University in the Decades Ahead, emphasizes the need for area studies that will contribute to the general and liberal education of students. The second paper, Reflections on the Internationalizing of Higher Education, suggests the need for universal values and stresses it is the university's responsibility to strengthen its capacity to direct its own internationalization and to educate governments and citizenries concerning the role and value of higher education. The third paper, Graduate Education, International Studies, and the National Interest, indicates that graduate education and international studies have become too far removed from the society that supports them. A viable relation with government and society is now the task of the modern university. (MJM)
