The University in the Caribbean in the Late Twentieth Century (1980-1999).
Caribbean Educational Bulletin, v2 n1 p3-34 Jan 1975
Two important factors in the development of the Caribbean University are the cultural domination of the metropolitan countries to which they were attached, and the sharp divergence, in respect to financing, between the American model in Puerto Rico on the one hand and the British model in the University of the West Indies on the other. Against this background, some considerations that the Caribbean governments must face in the development of their university are: the level of entry into higher education; establishment of some form of postsecondary education; the development of new aptitude tests, reconsideration of faculty work loads; and the expansion of graduate facilities. Also of importance are the problems of university autonomy, the brain drain, dissent, and Caribbean studies. (Author/KE)
