The Great Transformation in Higher Education, 1960-1980.
Kerr, Clark
This monograph collects 28 essays that were originally published between 1960 and 1980, a period viewed as the third major period in the history of U.S. higher education with politicalization of the campus, a great wave of attempted academic reform (and attendant disappointments), and great public efforts to achieve equality of opportunity. Some of the essays included are: "The American Strategy among Several Alternatives--Five Strategies for Education, and Their Major Variants"; "Structure--The American Mixture of Higher Education in Perspective: Four Dimensions"; "Performance--Goals for and Effectiveness of Systems of Higher Education"; "Ex Ante--The Frantic Race to Remain Contemporary"; "A Possible Residue: The Intellectual versus Society: A Source of Conflict? (vignette)""Changing Loci of Power--Governance and Functions"; "Changing Administrative Styles--Administration in an Era of Change and Conflict"; "Rebuilding Communities of Scholars--Toward the More Perfect University"; "An Urban versus a Rural Society--The Urban-Grant University: A Model for the Future"; and "The Eternal Verities--Universities: Open to Truth and Merit." References accompany each essay. (DB)
