A larger sense of purpose : higher education and society by Harold T Shapiro( )

23 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 2,203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the 2003 Clark Kerr Lectures, A Larger Sense of Purpose draws from Harold T. Shapiro's twenty-five years of experience in leading major research universities, and takes up key topics of debate in higher education. What are the nature and objectives of a liberal education? How should universities address the increasing commercialization not only of intercollegiate sports, but of education and research? What are the university's responsibilities for the moral education of students?" "The book begins with an expanded history of the modern research institution followed by essays on ethics, the academic curriculum, the differences between private and public higher education, the future of intellectual property rights, and the changing relationship between the nation's universities and the for-profit sector." "Shapiro calls for universities to be more accountable morally as well as academically. He urges scientists not only to educate others about the potential and limitations of science but also to acknowledge the public's distress over the challenges presented by the very success of the scientific enterprise. He advocates for a more intimate connection between professional training and the liberal arts - in the hope that future doctors, lawyers, and business executives will be educated in ethics and the social sciences as well as they are in anatomy, torts, and leveraged buyouts."--Jacket
Universities and their leadership by William G Bowen( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the occasion of the 250th anniversary of Princeton University, leading educators and commentators participated in a symposium jointly sponsored by Princeton and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Universities and Their Leadership is a collection of original essays from presenters at the Princeton Conference on Higher Education. Individually, these essays discuss aspects of contemporary higher education in the U.S. Taken together, they offer a useful perspective on issues that face American universities as they enter the twenty-first century. The opening essay, "The University and Its Critics" by Frank Rhodes, confronts criticisms of the American university, examines how universities have changed over recent decades, and suggests a plan of action to restore public confidence and strengthen bonds of community within universities. "On the Accountability of Higher Education in the United States," by Martin Trow, deals with the critical issue of responsibility. Harold Shapiro's essay, "University Presidents--Then and Now," blends personal insights with a historical account of changes over time in the roles of university presidents. In commenting on Shapiro's paper, Hanna Gray draws on her experiences as a university president and her training as a historian to demonstrate that university presidents have always operated under constraints. Henry Rosovsky and Inge-Lise Ameer collaborate in the essay "A Neglected Topic: Professional Conduct of College and University Teachers," to which Amy Gutmann responds in an essay entitled "How Can Universities Teach Professional Ethics?" Oliver Fulton contributes a cross-cultural perspective in "Unity or Fragmentation, Convergence or Diversity: The Academic Profession in Comparative Perspective in the Era of Mass Higher Education." Daniel J. Kevles's essay, "A Time for Audacity: What the Past Has to Teach the Present about Science and the Federal Government," considers the historical partnership between the scienti

Higher education : some problems and challenges in a changing world by B. J Shapiro( Book )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper offers an examination of the transformation of higher education over the last century with a focus on some current tensions and some ideas for responding to the rapidly changing environment. Early sections of the paper describe the "massification" of higher education in which 40 to 50 percent of the population participate in postsecondary studies. The paper outlines two stages of massification. In the first stage there are universities and "the others." (E.G., California's three distinct institutional types within its postsecondary system). In the second stage there is differentiation within the institutions. However, differentiation also results in pressures for accountability, increased regulation, and a distinction between teaching and research. The paper argues that increasing costs will be the most substantial challenge to mass higher education. It is predicted that revenues will increase at a rate lower than required to maintain the quality, scope, and method of production at current levels. The paper suggests that these concerns have been ignored or denied to date. The paper outlines 11 propositions to more effectively make the transition to the future. The first four are technical and cost-related. The last seven are based on accountability, cost effectiveness, productivity and responsiveness. (Jb)
