The distinctive college: Antioch, Reed & Swarthmore by Burton R Clark( Book )

13 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The factors contributing to the greatness of a first-rank liberal arts college are difficult to analyze. Hidden from view in the mysteries of tradition and institutional aura, the insistent questions remain: How has it been done? Can it still be done? In an intensive analysis of three highly regarded liberal arts colleges, Burton R. Clark uses a developmental approach to formal organization to seek out answers to these questions. The author begins with a presentation of the historical development of three colleges, Antioch, Reed, and Swarthmore. He describes in detail how broad institutional innovations were introduced and made to endure. In its empirical findings and conceptual formulations, The Distinctive College, first published in 1970, has played an important role in the analysis and understanding of college culture in contemporary America."--Back cover

The higher education system : academic organization in cross-national perspective by Burton R Clark( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basic elements of the higher education system are considered, along with variations across nations (the United Kingdom, Sweden, Japan, Italy, France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Australia, Canada, the United States, Poland, Yugoslavia, Mexico, and Thailand). Three basic elements of the organization of higher education system are identified: the way work tasks are arranged, primary norms and values, and the distribution of legitimate power throughout the system. Attention is directed to: national support structures for academics; the organization of academic work around knowledge; the division of academic labor by discipline and by sectors/institutional types; the foundations of academic beliefs and disciplinary points of view; integration in higher education through bureaucracy, politics, professions, and the market; and the way in which change occurs, including the contradiction between discipline and system, and the process of differentiation. The efforts of internal interest groups to do their work, protect their functions, and react to pressure are also addressed. It is concluded that the clash of social values in higher education will require considerable adjustments, and the systems most likely to prosper will be those that divide power, support variety, and allow ambiguity.

This book examines the capacity of universities in Germany, England, France, the United States, and Japan to operate as centers of research, as places for research training, and as institutions where even students destined for nonresearch careers will learn something of the nature of research. The volume is organized by country with each section introduced by the editor and including one chapter exploring the country's structures of research organization and advanced education, its historical development, and contemporary strains and stresses; and a second chapter reporting a study of disciplinary and institutional characteristics related to research. Contributed chapters have the following titles and authors: "The German Model of Research and Advanced Education" (Claudius Gellert); "The Conditions of Research Training in Contemporary German Universities" (Claudius Gellert); "Research Training and Graduate Education: The British Macro Structure" (Mary Henkel and Maurice Kogan); "Graduate Education in Britain: The View from the Ground" (Tony Becher); "Separation de Corps: The Training of Advanced Students and the Organization of Research in France" (Guy Neave); "The Research Training System in France: a Microstudy of Three Academic Disciplines" (Guy Neave and Richard Edelstein); "Graduate Education and Organized Research in the United States" (Patricia J.

Places of inquiry : research and advanced education in modern universities by Burton R Clark( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, the second in a two-volume work, builds on an international study of the research university in Germany, Britain, France, the United States and Japan, to explore the role and function of the research university and the relationship between teaching, research and graduate study. Part 1 lays the foundation for comparative analysis by depicting national configurations of advanced education and research organization. Chapter 1 establishes the 19th Century baseline for cross-national comparison by depicting how German universities developed and expressed a research outlook. Chapter 2 depicts the evolution and current structure of British higher education that highlights the strain placed on "post-graduate" education and its research underpinnings by nationalization of previously autonomous universities. Chapter 3 considers research activity and training within the high exceptionalism of French higher education. Chapter 4 looks at the United States and its competitive graduate schools; chapter 5 at the relationship between graduate education and industry in Japan. In Part 2 the concept of a research-teaching-study nexus is established as an organizing idea. Chapter 6 sets forth fragmenting forces. Chapter 7 examines current versions of the Humboldtian ideal. The final chapter points to the necessity of basing analysis and reform on a knowledge or inquiry model of modern systems of higher education. An index is included. (Contains approximately 230 references.) (Jb)
