Higher education in a global society by D. Bruce Johnstone( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Higher education functions in a global environment of consumers, employees, competitors, and partners. It has been a force for globalization and a model for adaptation, but nonetheless faces challenges. This volume of essays examines emerging issues and opportunities for advancing higher education across borders." "The demands upon and need for higher education have never been greater at both the individual and societal levels, and the avenues for pursuing the mission of higher education have greatly expanded due to globalization. This volume examines how strategically minded institutions can better fulfill their mission in a global environment while promoting international collaboration and strengthening the world economy. Chapter authors include prominent senior administrators from higher education and leading researchers on higher education and globalization. They provide new and actionable information to enhance decision making and inform strategic planning as well as a contemporary examination of the business of higher education and areas of potential new research." "This book is an excellent resource for academic administrators, as well as for researchers and students in business, management, economics, education, and public sector economics."--Jacket

Financing higher education worldwide : who pays? who should pay? by D. Bruce Johnstone( Book )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the universal phenomenon of cost-sharing in higher education -- where financial responsibility shifts from governments and taxpayers to students and families. Growing costs for education far outpace public revenue streams that once supported it. Even with financial aid and scholarships defraying some of these costs, students are responsible for a greater share of the cost of higher education. Shows how economically diverse countries all face similar cost-sharing challenges. While cost-sharing is both politically and ideologically debated, it is imperative to implement it for the financial health of colleges and universities From publisher description
Sharing the costs of higher education : student financial assistance in the United Kingdom, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Sweden, and the United States by D. Bruce Johnstone( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The educational and living costs of undergraduate studies and the ways these costs are shared among parents, students, taxpayers, and philanthropists/donors are considered for five countries: the United States, the United Kingdom, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, and Sweden. Five policy issues that are linked to how costs are shared by parents, students, and the general taxpayer are identified, including the participation in higher education by low-income and other previously excluded groups. The five country profiles and comparative analysis consider: the out-of-pocket costs faced by students and parents; the expected parental contribution, if any, and how it is derived; the expected student contribution, from savings, work, or loans; the taxpayer-borne contribution (E.G., need-based grants, loan subsidies); trends and issues regarding the sharing of higher education costs within each country; problems or issues common to all five countries; and each country's structure and governance of higher education. Appended materials describe the concept of "purchasing power parity," as well as concepts for separating subsidized loans into a "true loan" and an "effective grant." (Sw)

SUNY 2000, a more significant player : a report on the SUNY 2000 agenda of meeting state needs by D. Bruce Johnstone( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report by the Chancellor of the State University of New York (SUNY) discusses SUNY's "greatest challenge"--That is, the goal of becoming "a more significant player" in meeting New York State's needs in five crucial areas, namely, economic development, environmental conservation, health, public elementary and secondary education, and social services. The context for the effort and the formation of this organizational goal in planning for SUNY in the next century are discussed, and the Chancellor's own priorities, drawn from the reports of the Task Groups working on the five issues are described. These priorities are presented in the form of an eight-point action agenda which calls for: maintaining the Advisory Council on State Needs, requesting a special "state needs" budget, inventorying ongoing state needs projects, establishing a program of SUNY State Service Fellows, recognizing state needs in the granting of tenure and other considerations, planning a multi-agency conference on combining information technology with information needs, requesting assistance on ways SUNY might advance the state's investment in research and teaching in science, and planning ways for SUNY to play a more focused and significant role in addressing social and urban problems. The report offers brief summaries of each of the Task Groups' reports and an appended chart showing the initial dispositions of recommendations from the Task Groups. (JB)
The erosion of innovation in higher education by D. Bruce Johnstone( )

Learning productivity : a new imperative for American higher education by D. Bruce Johnstone( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first of two assumptions underlying the thesis of this paper is that, in the face of escalating costs, uneven demographics, faltering revenues, and a serious erosion of public confidence, United States higher education must become more productive. Universities and colleges of all types must produce demonstrably more education, research, and training for the resources requested from students, parents, and taxpayers. Increasing productivity is an imperative of every important sector of the economy and consequently the need for higher productivity is compelling. The second assumption is that productivity advance cannot be achieved wholly or even primarily through the traditional approach of reducing or cheapening the inputs--mainly faculty and staff--while defining enrollment as the "output" and holding it constant or forcing it to increase. From these two assumptions follows the central thesis of this paper: that significant and sustainable productivity advances in higher education must be achieved through greater attention to the learner. Learning productivity relates the input of faculty and staff, not to enrollments or to courses taught or to credit or classroom hours but to the demonstrated mastery of a defined body of knowledge or skills. Learning productivity can be increased through greater institutional efficiency, measures that lead to more learning from students, individually paced mastery learning, application of appropriate educational technology, emphasis on students focusing their studies sooner, year-round study, opening college doors to younger students, and beginning graduate and professional education at an earlier age. Includes 20 reference notes. (JB)
On the nexus of local and global : Chinese higher education and college students in the era of globalization by Yan Zhao Ciupak( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last three decades China has undergone dramatic changes in both the economic and social realmsa"rapidly integrating into the global economy and simultaneously influencing and being influenced by this eraa's massive global economic restructuring. Trying to work within both socialist and capitalist paradigms the Chinese regime has introduced social and educational policies reflecting the tensions between economic efficiency and social equity. Based on a large-scale qualitative study the author conducted in China between 2006 and 2009. 'On the Nexus of Local and Global' looks at how these dynamics and their related structural changes have challenged individual and collective identities as well as realigned such critical social factors as class race and gender. Above all this entry in the 'Issues in Globalization and Social Justice' series carefully considers the role education plays in these processes of construction and reconstruction and particularly how young people are selecting and implementing their future projects in the light of these global concerns
