Some Questions of Balance: Human Resources, Higher Education and Canadian Studies. Volume III of "To Know Ourselves: The Report of the Commission on Canadian Studies".
Symons, Thomas H. B.; Page, James E.
Questions about the supply of highly qualified graduates in Canada are examined. Attention is directed to the following concerns: the need for more adequate statistical information about Canadian postsecondary education and about current and future requirements for highly qualified graduates; the problems of maintaining equilibrium in the period of growth in Canadian higher education from 1945 to 1975; the current state of Canadian higher education, especially problems and uncertainties about enrollments and finances and the relationship of these to the development of Canadian studies; Canadian requirements for highly qualified graduates; the age structure of the professoriate and the lack of jobs for young scholars in Canada; the question of faculty citizenship (i.e., hiring Canadians for Canadian universities); the human resource questions arising from the national goals set for research and development; the status of women in Canadian academic life and the implications for teaching and research about Canada; and the role of foreign students in the promotion of knowledge about Canada. Recommendations are focused to specific organizations, institutions, and government agencies. Appended are a bibliography and guidelines on Canadianization and the university. (SW)
