The University in Society: An Inter-American Dialogue.
Institute of International Education, New York, NY.
The CHEAR conference was designed to promote a regular exchange of ideas and information among educational leaders in the Western Hemisphere. The agenda focused on three issues: interrelationships among education, development and modernization; interactions between government policy and higher education; and needs and institutional responses in the broad area of intellectual, educational and cultural exchange. The essay is a collection of the views expressed and deals with such topics as conceptions of the role of the U.S. university; conceptions of the role of the Latin American university; comparative roles of the two; the authority system in each; the political roles of the U.S. and Latin American university; the role of the university in modernization; and mutual cooperation in international development. Specific recommendations that emerged from the conference were for technical assistance through educational exchange; improved inter-American communication; and Latin American integration. (JMF)
