American Association of State Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC.
The experiences of a delegation of college and university presidents during a visit to the People's Republic of China (PRC) in July 1981 are recorded. The delegation visited over 20 universities as well as primary schools and middle schools in 5 provinces, hospitals, museums, and a commune. The mission resulted in a formal educational exchange agreement between the PRC and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU). In the report, 15 higher education leaders give their impressions of the Chinese education system, culture, and people. Contents include a delegation roster, political and administrative map of the PRC, itinerary, introduction by AASCU President Allan W. Ostar, six essays, notes from delegates' remarks on prospects for change, notes on follow-up activities, and the texts of agreements drawn up. The essays include: "A Frame of Reference of the People's Republic of China" (Dallas K. Beal); "A Visit to the People's Republic of China" (Leslie Malpass); "Lower and Middle Schools in China" (Leslie Malpass); "Higher Education: Policies" concerning educational environment, ministries, integration in educational functions, and educational in-breeding (Thomas B. Day); "Higher Education: Facts and Facilities" concerning faculties and facilities (Leonard C. Nelson); and "Highlights from the China Log" (excerpts from Stephen Horn's journal). (MSE)
