On the Horizon. The Environmental Scanning Newsletter for Leaders in Higher Education, 1992-1993.
Morrison, James L., Ed.
On the Horizon, v1 n1-5 1992-Jun 1993
This document consists of the preview issue and first five issues of a new newsletter designed to alert members of the higher education community to driving forces and potential developments in the macroenvironment that constitute threats or opportunities to colleges and universities. It reports news from the social, technological, economic, environmental, and political sectors, local through global. Among this series' major articles are the following: "What's on the Horizon for Higher Education?" (George Keller); "A New Social Charter for Higher Education?" (Ian Wilson); "Education in the Information Society" (Peter C. Bishop); and "It's Time to Re-Invent Higher Education--A Strategic Assessment" (David Pearce Snyder). Other articles discuss reasons higher education needs to beware of technology, why increasing the ties between colleges and universities and business may lead to conditions that threaten academic freedom, the issue of establishing a free-standing black cultural center on campus, and an examination of three college teachers who won teaching awards yet were denied tenure.
