Clark Kerr's world of higher education reaches the 21st century : chapters in a special history by Sheldon Rothblatt( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume consists of original essays by academic leaders and scholars connected to Clark Kerrâs life and work. He was arguably Americaâs most significant higher education thinker and public policy analyst in the last 50 years of the 20th century and renowned globally. However, little thoughtful attention has been devoted to assessing the whole of his work. Some commentators misunderstand the man as well as his ideas. The California Master Plan for Higher Education of 1960 was one of his famous undertakings, as was his part in shaping the multi-campus University of California towards global eminence. Â He coined the word âmultiversityâ|#x009D; to describe what he called the âusesâ|#x009D; of the university, but began to think it had become much too âmultiâ|#x009D;. Some of his most important work was as director of the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education and the Carnegie Council on Policy Studies in Higher Education, which laid the foundation for sophisticated policy-making. The contributors honor the achievements of a remarkable man and provide portraits of him, but of equal importance are their critical discussions of the sources of his thinking, his attempts to balance access and merit in mass higher education circumstances, the policy issues that he confronted and the success of their resolution. For many of the contributors, Kerrâs work is the starting point for understanding policy issues in varying regional and national contexts. Often thought to be a social scientist eager to keep abreast of trends, Kerr was actually au fond a moralist and surprisingly old-fashioned in his personal values

The modern university and its discontents : the fate of Newman's legacies in Britain and America by Sheldon Rothblatt( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This series of interlinked essays takes the form of historical 'voyages' around the Victorian intellectual John Henry Newman, and Newman's classic work The Idea of a University, as well as changes in the structure and culture of universities which occurred in Newman's lifetime. The voyages connect nineteenth- and twentieth-century university history, mainly in Britain and the United States but with side excursions to continental Europe. Among the many important topics discussed are the history of student communities in Oxford and Cambridge, the growth of a modern examinations culture, university architecture and the use of space in connection with educational ideals, urbanism and universities, and the competition of states, markets and academic guilds for the control of universities and the right to define the missions of university professors

While still consistently ranked as a world-class university, it has to decid
