The Truman Commission: International Developments for Colleges
Burke, Kenneth M.
Online Submission
Research briefly details the purpose of the Harry S. Truman administration's Commission on Higher Education for Democracy to support community colleges. Contrary to histories that define later origins in the 1960s, this paper makes an argument that the historical foundations of ideation for international education in community colleges originate with the Commission report's goals to advance global themes in higher education. (Contains 15 footnotes.)
