Financing American higher education in the era of globalization by William Mark Zumeta( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book grows out of the realization that a convergence of economic, demographic, and political forces in the early twenty-first century requires a fundamental reexamination of the financing of American higher education. The authors identify and address basic issues and trends that cut across the sectors of higher education, focusing on such questions as how much higher education the country needs for individual opportunity and economic viability in the future; how responsibility for paying for it is currently allocated; and how higher education finance should be addressed in the future. A major statement by four leading figures within the field, this is an indispensable book at a time of heightened national concern about the future of higher education

Demonstration of polyscann ultrasonic butt-fusion inspection system for polyethylene pipes by Orange S Marshall( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the demonstration of the Polyscann Ultrasonic Butt-Fusion Inspection System and laboratory research into its effectiveness as a quality control tool for installation of polyethylene pipe. In the demonstration, conducted at North Fort Hood, TX, 13 sections of 8 in. diameter polyethylene pipe were assembled and tied into a previously installed 8 in. gas pipeline. The system was successfully used to inspect each new butt-fusion joint in its entirety, and provided a computerized record of joint cross-sections and status. Laboratory tests indicated that the equipment results were mostly reliable, but it could not detect a low-density weld contaminant such as dried grass. Benefits of the Polyscann system include its nondestructive evaluation technology, capability of evaluating all joints without interrupting pipeline productivity, data-logging capabilities, ease of use, and ability to identify necessary repairs before the pipe is buried. After this demonstration was concluded, the manufacturer discontinued the system that was tested, and is redesigning it to be portable by one person and capable of detecting low-density contaminants such as grass. Price and release date for the updated system are pending. Polyethylene pipe, Butt-fusion joint, Ultrasonic testing Polyscann system

American higher education : how does it measure up for the 21st century? by James B Hunt( Book )

3 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays by former Governor James B. Hunt Jr. and business leader Thomas J. Tierney lay out in succinct fashion the requirements of both our nation and our states for new and higher levels of performance from America's colleges and universities. The authors of these essays are not theorists writing from an ivory tower. Quite the contrary, both are national leaders and draw from their extensive experience in civic life, politics, and business. Both serve on the Board of Directors of the National Center for Public Policy and Education, and each of their essays brings fresh insights to the National Center's seminal series of report cards evaluating and comparing state performance in higher education. The context for these report cards is the dramatically changed environment of higher education over the past two decades. Today, the knowledge-based, global economy and major demographic shifts demand substantially improved opportunities for education and training beyond high school. This demand must become a major goal of national and state public policy. To an unprecedented extent, more Americans must prepare for, enroll in, and successfully complete degree and certificate programs. As the baby boomers--the most highly educated Americans in history--retire, their replacements will come primarily from the expanding minority and low-income groups, populations that have traditionally been the least-educated groups in this country. If this nation and its states cannot improve the education of these groups, the share of the U.S. workforce that is college-educated will shrink, and much of our past advantage in the global marketplace will shrink with it. These essays by two of America's most perceptive and influential leaders are valuable maps for charting the course through the critical economic and educational challenges and opportunities of this new century

It further discusses initiatives in North Carolina to improve elementary, secondary, and higher education, and calls for states to expand their commitment to higher education. The speech goes on the examine the purposes of higher education, including promoting good citizenship, making people better human beings, and providing them with world-competitive skills. It looks at the role of public policy in higher education over the last several decades, noting the great achievements of the GI Bill in opening the doors of higher education to an entire generation after the World War II. The speech then focuses on two deficits in higher education today an opportunity deficit and a learning deficit.
