Faculty Responsibility in Contemporary Society. Proceedings of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities La Sapienza Conference (Rome, Italy, June, 1989).
Wingfield, Clyde J., Ed.
The 10 U.S. papers included in this collection discuss the organization, governance, problems, values, and faculty role of higher education in institutions of higher education in the United States. Major differences are identified in the introduction (Clyde Wingfield), including tendencies for American universities to be more integrated into economic and political processes and for Italian universities to be more linked to the past with their professors maintaining a higher social status. Differences in funding patterns and administrative structure are also identified. The papers have the following titles and authors: "Challenges Met, Challenges Facing the Modern American University and its Faculty" (Clifton Conrad and Eugene Trani); "An Education for Every American Worker" (Joseph Murphy); "The Socioeconomics of the College Curriculum" (David Lavin); "Faculty Governance: Old Wine in New Bottles" (Carol Guardo); "Momentum, Not Miracles: The Need to Embrace Technology in the Classroom" (Peter Cayan); "Idealistic and Pragmatic Reasons for the Importance of Faculty Research and Scholarship" (Judith Sturnick); "Faculty as Boundary Spanners: Responsibilities External to the Campus" (William Monat); "Partnerships with Business Challenge Traditional College Roles" (Robert Scott); "The Faculty Role in Maintenance of Professions and Promotion of the Arts" (Jewel Plummer Cobb); "Faculty Community Service: Contribution and Consequence" (John Unrue). An appendix lists the conference agenda. Most papers have references. (DB)
