Women and the power to change by Florence Howe( Book )

7 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effect of the women's movement on the lives of academic women potentially has a major impact on college and university campuses. Although the movement has already reached thousands of students, chiefly through women's studies programs, it has not yet begun to change the institutions of higher education. The four women who are the authors of this book like other academic women have seen their lives off campus change over the past four or five years. Their experiences led each of these women in different academic organizations to press for women's studies courses, for child care, or other institutional changes. In this document, the four women chart the histories of their lives as feminists in the world of higher education. And as they do so, they inevitably approach the issue of institutional reform. No consensus is reached on the manner or extent of desirable reform, and though these women of dissimilar backgrounds and personalities agree on much, they make no attempt to disguise their differences. All are torn between the awareness of the "formidable power of male-conceived and male-controlled law" and their intense desire to see feminism "overthrow the empire -- not in exchange for an equally oppressive matriarchy, but rather to achieve the equalization of power."

The divided academy: professors and politics by Everett Carll Ladd( Book )

7 editions published between 1975 and 1980 in English and Japanese and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

College and university faculty, together with their students, have established a reputation as being among the most liberal-left political groups in the United States. The extent to which that reputation is deserved and reasons why political liberality is so dominant on the nation's campuses are the subjects of this document. The empirical evidence comes from a national survey in which 60,000 faculty members in more than 300 institutions responded. Variations of political orientation associated with different academic disciplines, age, and religion are also described and analyzed, but the factor found to be most significant in explaining the left-liberal politics of professors is their commitment to the intellectual community. Chapters cover; (1) the politics of the intellectuals; (2) the ideology of academics: intersections of national and campus affairs; (3) academic disciplines and politics; (4) discipline and politics: the case of the social sciences; (5) class, intellectuality, and academic politics; (6) intellectuality and social background: the liberalism of Jewish academics; (7) the demography of academic politics: age and social background; (8) issues of the 1960's: the ear of campus protests; (9) persisting effects of the 1960's: the 1972 presidential election; (10) issues of the 1970's: unionism and the professoriate; and (11) conclusions.

Higher education: who pays? Who benefits? Who should pay? A report and recommendations by Carnegie Commission on Higher Education( Book )

11 editions published between 1973 and 1974 in English and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benefits from higher education flow to all, or nearly all, persons in the United States directly or indirectly, and the costs of higher education are assessed against all, or nearly all, adults directly or indirectly. Few Americans are denied any benefits and few adults escape any costs. This report is concerned with the very complicated and important questions of who benefits from, who pays for, and who should pay for higher education. This report looks at the problems of costs and benefits more in their totality than has been done before, and presents a more detailed analysis. The appendices include estimated distribution of tax burden and institutional subsidies by income group, university research activities, and the family contribution to college costs in 1971-72.

9 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an extensive study of the effective use of resources in colleges and universities the author offers some suggestions that envision radical rearrangements of higher education. Among his ideas are the following: (1) entrance requirements should be eliminated; (2) colleges and universities should be open to everyone the first year, and all youths should take their first year of college in residency away from home; (3) learning after the first year should be recurrent and interlaced with career experience; (4) institutions of higher education should be fully financed by tuition; (5) higher education should abandon its certification function; (6) more attention should be given to assisting students to make appropriate career choice; and (7) lectures for standard courses should be broadcast over national or regional tv by university consortia.

Faculty bargaining : change and conflict : a report prepared for the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education and the Ford Foundation by Joseph William Garbarino( Book )

7 editions published between 1975 and 1976 in English and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why do the faculty of colleges and universities organize? Is faculty unionism inevitable? Is faculty unionism irreversible? What is the impact of faculty unionism? These four questions are central to this comprehensive review of experience to date with collective bargaining. Collective bargaining is viewed in the context of rapid changes in colleges and universities in the 1960's and 1970's that have threatened traditional relationships among professors, their institutions, and other sectors of society. Among the subjects discussed are traditional forms of faculty participation in institutional governance; the development, strengths, and weaknesses of some of the national organizations that now represent faculty members as bargaining agents; the changes in faculty relationships to their institutions that have occurred with the development of collective bargaining; and some of the educational, political and administrative issues that are raised by the new bargaining procedures. One chapter focuses attention on faculty bargaining at American's 2-year colleges. Another chapter reviews the British experience with collective bargaining. The author concludes, among other things, that collective bargaining will be a feature of higher education for the foreseeable future. (Author)

12 editions published between 1937 and 1973 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purposes of higher education have grown and changed over the years, but they have not been decisively reordered since about 1870. Five major purposes for higher education in the last quarter of the twentieth century are: (1) the provision of opportunities for the intellectual, aesthetic, ethical and skill development of students, and the provision of campus environments which can constructively assist students in their more general growth; (2) the advancement of the human capability in society at large; (3) the enlargement of educational justice for the postsecondary age group; (4) the transmission and advancement of learning and wisdom; and (5) the critical evaluation of society-through individual thought and persuasion-for the sake of society's self-renewal.
