Higher Education in Asia and the United States. A Cross-Cultural Dialogue.
Institute of International Education, New York, NY.
The Institute of International Education's Council on Higher Education for Asia and the United States is designed to create the conditions necessary for a regular and fruitful exchange of ideas, plans, and action programs between university leaders from the United States and from the Asia-Pacific region. Discussions held at the Council's planning meeting in Hong Kong in 1970 explored: (1) universities as instruments for the promotion of international understanding; (2) proper mission of a university; (3) governance; (4) usefulness of language and area programs; (5) preservation of freedom in the university. The Nara conference held in 1971 focused on university management and the problems of cooperation and cultural interchange. Background information for the discussions are provided by participants in the Nara Conference. Their brief reports cover university structure and objectives and area-language study programs.
