Universities and the Community: Use of Time in Universities in Japan. RIHE International Publication Series, No. 6.
Morgan, Keith J.
This report seeks to help institutions manage change by examining college faculty use of time for and contributions to the community in Japan. The report combines the results of two surveys conducted in the national universities, one across a number of universities which compared faculties of engineering with other faculties and one which included all faculty in a large university, with a third survey, which focused on a sample of private and public universities. Chapters include: "Introduction,""A Survey of Engineering and Other Faculties in National Universities,""A Survey of All Faculties in a National University,""Uses of Time in National Universities,""A Survey of Use of Time in Private and Public Universities," and "Comparison of the Uses of Time in the National, Private and Public Universities." The study found that, overall, the national universities, with their strong research tradition, play a major role in community service, but it is only through the contributions of public and private universities that a balanced spectrum of community activities is achieved. The strength of the entire system was highlighted by high levels of faculty participation. The questionnaire is appended. (SM)
