Teachers and students; aspects of American higher education by Martin A Trow( Book )

10 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey to determine attitudes of students and faculty members in colleges and universities was undertaken in 1969. The survey yielded data about the opinions of faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in higher education: colleges, universities, two-year and four-year, public and private. This document uses that data to explore distinct segments and activities of the academic population. Chapters discuss: (1) general findings on students and teachers; (2) research activity in American higher education; (3) religious involvement and scholarly productivity among American academics; (4) black students in higher education; (5) undergraduates in sociology; (6) academic women in the United States; (7) marital status and graduate education; (8) the impact of peers on student orientation to college. Appendixes contain a technical report on the survey and reproduction of the questionnaires used in the survey. (Author/KE)

Problems in the transition from elite to mass higher education by Martin A Trow( Book )

9 editions published between 1973 and 1975 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In every advanced society the problems of higher education are problems associated with growth. Growth poses a variety of problems for the education systems that experience it and for the societies that support them. These problems arise in every part of higher education--in its finance, in its government and administration; in its recruitment and selection of students; in its curriculum and forms of instruction; in its recruitment, training, and socialization of staff--growth has its impact on every form of activity and manifestation of higher education. This essay argues that the problems facing higher education can be understood better as different manifestations of a related cluster of problems, and that they arise out of the transition from one phase to another in a broad pattern of development of higher education, a transition from elite to mass higher education, and subsequently to universal access. Underlying this pattern of development are growth and expansion. (Author/MJM)

Methodological problems in the evaluation of innovation by Martin A Trow( Book )

4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report outlines three aspects of research and innovation in higher education. First, the relevance of social science research methods to educational policy is discussed in relation to the bureaucratic and democratic distribution of power in higher education. Second, research and innovation are discussed and applied toward determining the proximate and ultimate goals of an educational institution. Finally, the influence of experimental research on educational processes is evaluated. Some research methods to explore these difficulties are outlined. Suggestions are made to make innovative research more enlightening by emphasizing its use in clarifying and identifying processes and procedures in education.

The university presidency : comparative reflections on leadership by Martin A Trow( Book )

8 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The role of the university president in the United States is considered in this David D. Henry lecture, as well as in three responses by a panel consisting of University of Illinois President Stanley C. Ikenberry, the university's College of Education Dean Joe R. Burnett, and University of Illinois professor David A. Whetten. A question and answer session between the panelists and the lecturer is also included. The lecture focuses on the role of the presidency in the great American research universities, perhaps 30 or so in all. The term "presidency" is used to refer to the chief campus officers. The lecture explores in general terms what is meant by "leadership" in universities, and contrasts the American university presidency with its counterpart in selected European countries. The historical sources of the unique role of the university president that has developed in America are also sketched. Structures and institutional mechanisms through which the American university president takes initiatives, deploys resources, and exercises leadership are identified. It is suggested that leadership is apparent in four dimensions: symbolic, political, managerial, and academic. The lecture argues that strong faculty influence in university governance is as much a source of presidential power as a limitation on it. (Sw)
Accountability of colleges and universities : an essay by Patricia Albjerg Graham( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This essay presents the results of a study of the means that colleges and universities should use to assure proper accountability within the institution in regard to teaching and learning. It discusses the basis of institutional accountability, public perceptions of accountability (or lack thereof), the role of governments and market forces, the role of trustees, and existing forms of accountability. It also outlines five basic principles of accountability: (1) external accountability must reinforce internal accountability; (2) "do no harm"; (3) respect diversity; (4) academic responsibility is central; and (5) accountability is a forward-looking responsibility. The essay also reviews new systems of accountability, including specialized accreditation, accountability matrices, and audits. The essay concludes that most colleges and universities need to pay greater attention to teaching and learning, areas that are the proper focus of internal accountability. It goes on to argue that institutions need to conduct more serious and candid reviews focused on the quality of education in each academic unit, and that institution-wide accreditation should adopt a process of audits of the internal quality-control efforts within the institution. A list of the experts and advisors who contributed to the study is attached. (Contains 107 references.) (Mdm)

Aspects of American higher education, 1969-1975 : a report for the Carnegie Council on Policy Studies in Higher Education by Martin A Trow( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trends in American higher education between 1969 and 1975 are reported based on surveys in those two years by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education. In general, the late 1960's saw widespread turbulence and disruption directed both at educational forms on campus and changes in American foreign policy. This movement was marked by a political swing to the left among college and university teachers and students. In 1972, with the end of the draft and direct American participation in military operations in Vietnam, the climate on campuses became less political, less radical, and centered more on teaching and studying. With the economic recession of 1975, the mood became more serious and students were more concerned with employment possibilities and vocationalism. This report reviews attitudes in the following areas: general satisfaction; trend toward conservatism on academic issues; broad social attitudes; race; other attitudes on social issues; attitudes toward women; faculty collective bargaining; numbers, rank, and tenure; faculty characteristics; student finances; and grade inflation. Statistical tables are included. (Lbh)
