Shumar, Wesley – Journal of Higher Education, 2004
This article seeks to isolate one major strand of work in American cultural anthropology together with its implications for the study of higher education.

Black Issues in Higher Education, 2004
Founded in 1857 "to elevate the character and advance the interests of the profession of teaching and to promote the cause of education in the United States," the National Education Association has a long history of fighting for the rights of educators across the nation.

Harter, Cynthia L.; Becker, William E.; Watts, Michael – Journal of Economic Education, 2004
How much time do academic economists allocate to teaching, research, and service, and how much time do their departments want them to allocate to these pursuits? As a result of the decline in economics majors in the early 1990s, was there a change in the reward system and time allocation of academic economists toward teaching? In this study, the…

Altbach, Philip G. – Change, 2004
At present, approximately 2 million students worldwide study outside of their home countries, a number that a recent report suggests will increase to 8 million by 2025.

Casado, Matt A.; Dereshiwsky, Mary I. – College Student Journal, 2004
Numerous reports and articles have pointed out the mediocrity of U.S. students' second language skills, implying, for example, that students abroad may perform better because of an established educational framework with an 'early start' and 'well-articulated teaching strategies.' If this were the case, students overseas should demonstrate lower…

Campbell, Patricia J.; Masters, Paul E.; Goolsby, Amy – College Teaching, 2004
In this article, we examine a new global studies program that departs from the traditional state-centric approach and uses a geocentric, or earth-centered, approach that emphasizes the roles of individuals, grassroots organizations, cultural groups, and international organizations in an attempt to help students conceptualize global events and…

Shockley, KMT G. – Black Issues in Higher Education, 2004
Many organizations that conduct statistical analyses of demographic information indicate that the United States is rapidly becoming a more diverse place (e.g. U.S. Census, 2000).

Goldsborough, Reid – Black Issues in Higher Education, 2004
There comes a time when one asks even of Yahoo, even of Google, "Is this all?" Yahoo and Google do an admirable job of categorizing the Internet and making its contents more accessible. But ultimately they're search tools, not research tools. There's a great deal of information not on the Internet, particularly thoroughly researched,…

Wu, Frank H. – Black Issues in Higher Education, 2004
The story of Brown is compelling. Blacks and Whites alike understood that the Jim Crow system of "separate but equal" was a convenient fiction. There was no actual effort to ensure that Whites and Blacks were provided the same services. Invariably, the White schools had higher funding, better buildings, newer supplies and so on. Indeed,…
