UNIVERSITY AUTONOMY AND THE EXPATRIATE TEACHER - OBSERVATIONS ON A CRISIS
AbstractIn spite of the fact that Canadian universities do not appear to be able to staff their own rapidly growing departments with Canadian citizens, Canadian university teachers in steadily increasing numbers are storing their furniture, inoculating their children for cholera and yellow fever, labelling their luggage with exotic names like Addis Ababa, Kuala Lumpur, Nairobi, Dar-es-Salaam, Kampala, or Lusaka, and disappearing for two or three years at a time. Some of these teachers are unsponsored, some have UNESCO appointments, but the great majority of them are teaching abroad, either directly or indirectly, under the auspices of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), formerly known as the Department of External Aid. No matter how their appointments are made, they can he sure of one thing: while abroad they will have to make some important personal decisions with little precedent to guide them.
