UNIV 83. A Student's Work. Proceedings of the International University Congress (15th, Rome, Italy, March 26-April 4, 1983).
Cooperation in Education: International Quarterly of the Institute for University Cooperation, n41/44 Winter 1983
In this proceedings, attention is focused on career preparation and the relationship between general and specialized studies, as well as the link between theoretical knowledge and practical experience. The preparatory study for the congress was conducted in about 300 universities, primarily in Europe and America. Nearly 15,000 interviews were conducted in about 25 countries to discover the extent to which students view their university studies as work. The following key points were found: study is a demanding task, career preparation is regarded as important, and human qualities are more significant than academic preparation in assuring a successful career. Conference papers and authors include the following: "A Student's Work: Introductory Address" (Myriam Puig); "A Student's Work: Two Traditions (The U.S. Report)" (John A. Gueguen); "The Role of Research in the University" (Raffaello Cortesini); "The Study of Economics as Service-Oriented Work" (Bernard M. Villegas); "A Moral Imprint upon Intellectual Activity" (M. Puig); and "A Student's Work: The Full Uplifting of Mankind (John Paul II). Survey questions and a summary of responses are included. (SW)
