  • Description: The author of this dissertation feels the United States needs to increase its educational demands in the area of international relations in order to maintain its stand in the world as a major leader. Current institutions which serve as educational and cultural connectors are listed and reviewed. These are not always educational institutions as such, but other kinds of groups, sometimes local within the United States, or the Peace Corp. The point is made that if the United States wishes to remain instrumental in implementing solutions to global problems, education directed at global issues must be vastly increased. International Relations of any worth assumes knowledge, specifically of the area involved as well as of the world internationally. Are institutions offering this knowledge? Can the challenge of being in a leadership role internationally be well met? The world is becoming more complex. The computer has taken a major leap in a job that had been started by the airplane. Now the wireless telephone has put a personal voice on a possibly very important communication. This kind of dialog must be amongst ourselves and across the oceans. Changes may have to be made if the United States is to remain among the world's top leaders.
