American Council on Education, Washington, DC. International Education Project.
With upcoming global realities of interdependence in mind, this report attempts to usefully inform citizens, educators, and policy makers about worldwide educational issues. The result of a colloquy among representatives of a wide variety of educational interests and federal agency interests, the report provides recommendations for ways that colleges and universities might become more useful catalysts and partners. Recommendations include suggested actions by the federal government, state governments., educational institutions, and private foundations. Chapter one discusses the global setting, chapter two points to the national (U.S.) need for public understanding, and chapter three presents the national need for expert knowledge. Appendices relate specific occurrences and activities to the needs for understanding and knowledge. (Author/ND)
