"This history of higher education in America clarifies brilliantly the problems of the present by means of perspectives on the past; and it does so at a time when our colleges and universities face momentous questions of new growth and direction. Beginning with the colonial colleges, which transplanted and adapted European forms of higher learning to the New World, the authors follow with changes wrought in the early structure during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Three hundred thirty years of ferment have brought about a drift away from religious affiliation, the growth of the elective system and technical training, land-grand acts, co-education, the development of state universities, city colleges, and two year colleges, and the evolution of professional education. The story is traced chronologically, in terms of men and institutions. The focus throughout, however, is on certain major areas of concern, such as curriculum, administration, academic freedom, and student life, showing how the conduct of higher education has been affected by changing social attitudes on these matters"--Jacket
On the philosophy of higher education by John S Brubacher( Book )

35 editions published between 1977 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 1,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basic academic issues such as institutional objectives, educational ethics, and methods of academic decision-making are examined in light of significant new social, economic, legal, and educational developments in this revision of the 1977 edition of "On the Philosophy of Higher Education." Focus is on the tension between pure research and social involvement, lay versus academic control, and academic freedom. The chapters are as follows: (1) "The Higher Learning" (philosophies legitimating higher education, conflict of philosophies, and political philosophy); (2) "Academic Autonomy" (the limits of autonomy, autonomy in academic hierarchy, collective bargaining, and student participation); (3) "Academic Freedom" (the justifications, limits, and political aspects of academic freedom, student involvement, and civil liberties); (4) "Higher Education for Whom?" (Access to education, meritocracy and egalitarianism, and the quality of higher education); (5) "General and Specialized Education" (general education, vocational education, and counter-culture); (6) "Pedagogy of Higher Education" (types of pedagogy, curriculum, motivation of learning, and the grading system); (7) "Ethics of Scholarship" (obligation to one's discipline, ethical tangents to academic freedom, financial considerations, sanctions, and student honor codes); and (8) "The University as a Church" (the university as a secular church in its capacity to continue what the church has always been--the conscience of society). A bibliographical essay and index are provided. (Lc)
