Higher Education: A Developing Field of Study.
Harcleroad, Fred F., Ed.
This volume includes materials that clearly indicate the state of the development of the field of higher education. The members of the Association of Professors of Higher Education gathered in their third formal national conference to read and discuss the materials included here. The ideas and information presented in this edited, and relatively condensed, set of papers are good evidence that higher education is truly developing as an important field of study. After the introduction by Fred F. Harcleroad the papers are as follows: "What Role for Professors of Higher Education?" by Samuel E. Kellams; "The Professor-Disciplinarian" by Burton R. Clark; "The Professor-Administrator" by Joseph F. Kauffman: "The Professor-Policy Analyst" by Alexander W. Astin; "The Professor-Editor" by Robert J. Silverman; "Survey of Higher Education Programs" by Paul L. Dressel; "Problems and Issues in Programs in Higher Education" by Lewis B. Mayhew; "Doctoral-Level Graduates With Higher Education as a Specialized Field of Study" by William D. Carr; "Characteristics of Several Current Doctoral Programs and of Members of APHE" by Naomi Ross; "Some Thoughts on the Service Role of Departments of Higher Education" by E.D. Duryea; and "Center for the Study of Higher Education; A Consultant in Resident Role?" by G. Lester Anderson. (Author/PG)
