Financing and managing university research equipment by Association of American Universities( Book )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Problems and practices in financing and managing research equipment are assessed, based on visits to 23 college, government, and industry laboratories and meetings with over 500 scientists, and college, government, and industry representatives. The following concerns are addressed: possible changes in federal/state laws, regulations, or policies to improve the acquisition, management, and use of academic research equipment; ways colleges might improve the way they acquire, manage, and use research equipment; possible revisions to tax incentives for industry donations of research equipment to colleges; and alternative methods of direct federal funding of research equipment. Recommendations cover the federal government, the states, the universities, debt financing by universities, and private support for equipment. Information is included on: loan subsidy programs, federal instrumentation programs, regulations for 10 states, and 20 state statutes authorizing bonds to fund college facilities. Appendices provide examples of debt financing and equipment donations, information on debt financing instruments, and data on 1953-1983 research and development expenditures at colleges by source of funds, and 1982 and 1983 fund expenditures for research equipment at colleges by science/engineering field and source of funds.

Campus copyright rights and responsibilities : a basic guide to policy considerations by Association of American Universities( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Copyright law supports a fundamental mission of colleges and universities to create and disseminate new knowledge and understanding through teaching, research, and scholarship in two basic ways: (1) by providing incentives for the creation of new works through the provision of proprietary rights to copyright owners, and (2) by providing limitations on those rights in order to facilitate public access to and use of creative works. This document, prepared by the Association of American Publishers, the Association of American Universities, the Association of American University Presses, and the Association of Research Libraries, is intended to present a basic explanation of copyright law with an emphasis on its application to colleges and universities. The document: (1) provides a discussion of current copyright issues in the higher education setting that reflects the concerns and points of view of colleges and universities and the publishing community with which these institutions regularly interact and collaborate; (2) encourages colleges and universities to review their institutional policies on the use and management of copyrighted works in light of the continuing evolution of digital technologies and the numerous revisions to copyright and related laws generated in part by that evolution; and (3) provides information to colleges and universities concerning the development of educational materials for their students, faculty, and staff that provide guidance on the creation, use, and management of copyrighted works in this shifting legal and societal landscape. Part I of this document provides a primer on copyright law. Part II addresses specific issues that may be relevant to development of an institutional copyright policy

The Federal financing of higher education. by Association of American Universities( Book )

2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Solutions to the urban crisis, the Vietnam war, and other national problems require, and could be met by, the knowledge and manpower developed in American colleges and universities. But a severe financial crisis increasingly threatens even their normal operations. Enrollments have risen by about 3.5 million since 1930, with a large segment of this growth occurring in the past 10 years. Between 1955 and 1965, student bodies grew by 2.9 million and total expenditures and income increased from $3.4 to over $14.9 billion. Current federal assistance includes student aid, research grants and contracts, and construction funds. Most of this support takes the form of categorical aid, or programs linked to a specific federal agency. Future manpower requirements will help to raise enrollments to approximately 8 million in 1975. Broad institutional grants could narrow the gap between income and expenditures. More funds for research libraries, computers, international studies, and the arts and humanities are needed as well as new aid programs for areas of public concern such as inner cities, pollution, and improvement of elementary and secondary education. As federal support programs increase, better coordination among them and more communication between their policy makers and educational leaders are necessary. (Wm)
Understanding university success : a report from Standards for Success : a project of the Association of American Universities and the Pew Charitable Trusts by David T Conley( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet outlines what students must know and be able to do to succeed in entry-level university courses. The standards presented in the booklet were designed to create a new way to view college preparation. The standards--known as the knowledge and skills for university success (ksus) standards--were developed from a 2-year study in which data were collected, and analyzed, from 400 faculty members and administrators from 20 American universities. Success, as defined by these standards, means the ability to do well enough in college entry-level core academic courses to meet general education requirements and to continue on to a major in a particular area. The booklet is divided into six sections, each a content area: English, mathematics, natural sciences, social sciences, second languages, and the arts. Each section describes the knowledge and skills foundations and the standards for entry-level courses and for major courses. Interspersed throughout the booklet are viewpoints of anonymous faculty members on the various skills and knowledge needed for student success in each content area. (Wfa)

Reinvigorating the humanities : enhancing research and education on campus and beyond by Catherine Langrehr Birzer( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Socrates' time on, liberal arts education has been understood to produce a general learned competence that allows a student to be both a better human being and a better citizen. The breadth of this liberal arts curriculum stands in contrast to the much narrower vocational curriculum. More recently, the humanities have been caught in a conflict between over-simplified aristocratic and democratic notions of liberal arts education. Under the former, the liberal arts are viewed as being distinctly not useful; under the latter, they are seen as providing ideas of value to all citizens. Indeed, scholars and university administrators need to bear in mind the value of the humanities in the education of all of a university's students, the usefulness of this knowledge in the professional lives of those students, and society's need for a common base of understanding and an educated citizenry. Recently, those closely involved with the humanities--scholars, university administrators, academic society officials, and others--have begun separate reexaminations of established traditions and expectations, leading perhaps to defining a new role for the humanities in the university and in society. This report is intended to further prompt that reexamination of the humanities on university campuses, to identify steps that some institutions already have taken, and to propose future action. The report contains 3 parts: (1) The Role and Status of the Humanities at AAU Universities; (2) Recommendations and Ongoing Activities at AAU Universities; and (3) Appendices. (Five appendices are included: (1) Additional Examples; (2) The Humanities Support Infrastructure; (3) University of Toronto's Humanities Campaign; (4) AAM Position Statement on University Museums and Collections; and (5) References. Endnotes are presented following each part of the report. Statistical Information is presented in 5 graphs, and 8 tables.)
