ABSTRACT
The United States is a large country with five time zones, over 300 million peopleā€”a countrythat is as diverse as any country can be. Anyone who is familiar with the US will know that it isimpossible to get unanimity among Americans on any subject. Hence, it is unlikely that anyone canspeak accurately on a unanimous American perspective on the integration of European HigherEducation systems. What we would likely have is a multiplicity of opinions, some protagonists, someantagonists, and yet many more completely indifferent to or unaware of efforts to integrate Europeanhigher education systems. Given this, what is presented here is a perspective, one out of many, but itcan be seen as validly American because it reflects the interest of the United States with regard tocompetition for students and research talents as well as worldwide recognition of the US as the homefor the bastions of knowledge.
