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

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 509 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 290 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 157 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)
Financing higher education : cost-sharing in international perspective by D. Bruce Johnstone( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public systems of higher education worldwide are caught between increasing public and private demand for their products, rising per-student costs, and flat or even declining governmental revenues. Thus, the fundamental condition of higher education, especially in the low and middle income countries, is dominated by the radically diverging trajectories of higher education costs and available governmental revenues, underscoring the worldwide search for other-than-governmental revenue sources for higher education. This is the higher educational austerity rationale for cost-sharing-which term reflects both the simple fact that the underlying costs of higher education are shared by governments (or taxpayers), parents, students, and philanthropists, as well as a description of a worldwide policy trend of these costs being increasingly shifted from governments to parents and students. The underlying theory of cost-sharing as well as the description of its worldwide reach were developed from 1986 through 2006 mainly by the works of Johnstone and his Ford Foundation financed International Higher Education Finance and Accessibility Project at the State University of New York at Buffalo. The principal papers from this project are reproduced in this volume. They examine the worldwide shift in the burden of higher education costs from governments and taxpayers to parents and students, and the policies of grants, loans and other governmental interventions designed to maintain higher educational accessibility in the face of this shift

College-level learning in high school : purposes, policies, and practical implications by D. Bruce Johnstone( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication is the first in what will be a new set of Academy in Transition policy and research reports on important trends in undergraduate education and the changing environment in which colleges and universities are educating a much larger percentage of the population. College-level learning in high school is a rapidly growing, but little-studied, phenomenon. With well over a million Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations taken by more than 700,000 high school students, AP plays an increasingly visible role in defining the content and standards of high school college-entry-significant courses. College-level learning in high school also includes courses for which colleges grant credit as their own, but which are taught to high school students by high school teachers in high school venues. This study examined the central role of college and university policies toward the sponsorship of college-level learning in high school and the acceptance of supposed college-level credits brought in by entering or transferring students. Data are from a national sample of 451 two- and four-year colleges and universities collected and analyzed by the University at Buffalo Learning Productivity Network. Findings reveal great differences in encouragement and accommodation according to the selectivity of the institution, with highly selective institutions requiring higher scores on AP examinations and frequently not allowing them to be credited toward graduation. Less selective institutions are more likely to accept AP results and other forms of college credit. (Contains 17 tables, 13 endnotes, and 25 references.) (SLD)
Economic stabilization policies by Wilfred Lewis( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This pamphlet was derived from a discussion paper prepared for a Joint Council conference. It was specifically revised for this series to bring an important subject to the attention of students and concerned citizens. Part One defines the problem of economic stabilization and explains the fiscal and monetary measures used to help control the traditional ups and downs in the economy. Also included here is the current and more complex problems of creeping inflation. Part Two reviews the successes and failures of policies since World War ii, and explains why institutional changes and built-in automatic safeguards make a 1929-sized crash unlikely. Part Three outlines a number of future stabilization issues confronting policy-making authorities when the Vietnam War ends. The teaching section by D. Bruce Johnstone provides illustrations of learning activities which teachers will find helpful as they translate the economics of stability into meaningful student experiences. A bibliography at the end of Part Three will give the reader additional resources. (Author/SBE)

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)
Cost-sharing and accessibility in higher education : a fairer deal? by Pedro Teixeira( )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Higher education finances lie at the crossroads in many Western countries. On the one hand, the surging demand of the past three or four decades, driven by a belief in higher education as a principal engine of social and economic advancement, has led to dramatic growth of the higher education systems in these countries. On the other hand, this growth in demand was accompanied by rapidly increasing per-student cost pressures at a time when governments seemed increasingly unable to keep pace with these cost pressures through public revenues. Hence, worldwide, the most common approach to the need for increasing revenue was to use some form or forms of cost sharing, or the shift of some of the higher educational per-student costs from governments and taxpayers to parents and students. This raises several important challenges to higher education systems. First, there is the political and social controversy associated with most forms of cost-sharing, particularly with tuition fees. Secondly, there are important issues in terms of the broad context of social policy, such as the role of families and students and the relationship that the state establishes with each of them. Third, there is the comparison of alternative instruments of cost-sharing and the direct and indirect effects of each of them, notably in terms of educational equality. Overall, underlying cost-sharing debates are fundamental questions about social choice, individual opportunities, and the role of government in society." -- Prové de l'editor
Learning productivity : a new imperative for American higher education by D. Bruce Johnstone( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2003 in English and held by 11 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)
