The Role of the Foreign Student in the Process of Development. A Report of a Symposium (Snowmass, Colorado, June 9-12, 1982).
Jenkins, Hugh M.
This document presents a summary of the proceedings of a symposium in which participants gathered to discuss the education and training of foreign students in the United States and the relationship between this experience and the use of science and technology for development. A basic contention underlying the symposium was that the transfer of technology from the United States and other developed nations to developing nations is a very important process, and that the hundreds of thousands of foreign students who study in the United States form a significant component in this transfer process. A goal of the symposium was to explore ways to make the educational experience of foreign students as successful as possible in preparing them for effective roles in promoting appropriate development in their communities through the use of science and technology. Four recommendations are identified and summarized in this report. Lists of symposium participants and papers presented also are included. (DB)
