The European Universities 1975–1985 examines the problems faced by universities in Europe, their different proposed solutions, and the preparation of the future of higher education at both a national and international level. The social role of the university and its conception in different European countries are discussed, along with issues related to university training, research, government, and financing.
Comprised of 25 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the role of the university in the new society; university entrance; and how the university can help improve prospects for continuing education and address manpower needs. The reader is then introduced to the purpose of university training; teaching methods and evaluation of results; the learning process at the university level; and the role of research in the university. Subsequent chapters focus on university autonomy; financial planning, budgeting, and control in universities; and the financing of students.
This monograph will be of interest to university students, faculty, and administrators.
