Disorders in Higher Education.
Walton, Clarence C.; Bolman, Frederick deW.
Conditions affecting the moral and intellectual integrity of American colleges and universities are discussed in a series of papers collected from the 56th American Assembly on "The Integrity of Higher Education." An erosion of public confidence in higher education is noted and it is suggested that the expectations of higher education have not been met by the institutions. Declining enrollments, financial constraints, and increasing government regulations have compounded the problem of demoralization within higher education and demand that the situation be remedied. Papers included are: Not in Our Stars (Frederick deW. Bolman); The Money Crunch: A Financial Analysis (Richard E. Anderson); The Power of Government (Carl Kaysen); The University and Special Interest Groups (Lloyd H. Elliott); Governance and Administration of the University (Richard M. Cyert); Faculty Ethics in Academic Depression (Roy E. Licklider); The Integrity of the Student: A Normative Approach (Willard F. Enteman); The Curriculum (Elizabeth T. Kennan); Reflections (or Fantasies?) on the University (Clarence C. Walton). (SF)
