Title VI of the National Defense Education Act of 1958 supports international education activities that range from advanced Ph.D. training to elementary social studies and serve not only all types and levels of educational institutions, but also some business and community interests. This study has five major objectives: (1) to describe and evaluate how Title VI operates at the federal level; (2) to describe and evaluate the activities of college and university area studies centers; (3) to assess the effectiveness of the Graduate and Undergraduate International Studies Programs; (4) to describe and assess the effectiveness of the research program; and (5) to evaluate the Title VI program in the larger context of international education. The final chapter outlines a series of issues policymakers and administrators need to consider in determining future directions for the Title VI program.
