Brown, Douglas, Ed.; And Others
This volume contains the proceedings of an international colloquium on higher education in federal countries with complex divisions of responsibility for the many facets of higher education. The volume is organized in four parts. Part I contains one paper, "The Federal Context for Higher Education" by Ronald L. Watts and a description of the discussion that followed its presentation. Part II offers detailed descriptions of higher education in seven federal systems: "Higher Education in Seven Federal Systems: A Synthesis" (David M. Cameron); "Higher Education in Federal Systems: Canada" (David M. Cameron); "Origins and Development of Federalism in American Higher Education" (Martin Trow); "Higher Education in Federal Systems: Australia" (Robert H. T. Smith and Fiona Wood); "Higher Education in Federal Systems: Switzerland" (Augustin Macheret); "Higher Education in Federal Systems: Germany" (Ulrich Teichler); "Higher Education in Federal Systems: Belgium" (Ignace Hecquet); and "Higher Education in Federal Systems: The European Community" (Pierre Cazalis). Part III summarizes discussions held at the colloquium on four issues in higher education: organization, planning and management; financing higher education; student mobility; and research planning and financing. Part IV covers the final session and contains rapporteur's comments titled "Hasty Generalization, Missed Opportunities and Oversimplifications: Overcoming the Obstacles to Understanding Higher Education (Whatever That Is) in Federal Systems (Whatever They May Be)" by J. Stefan Dupre and the discussion that followed. Many papers include reference notes. A list of participants and their addresses is also provided. (JB)
