A CRITICAL BALANCE, HISTORY OF CSLEA.
WHIPPLE, JAMES B.
THE CHANGING CHARACTER OF THE CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF LIBERAL EDUCATION FOR ADULTS (CSLEA) FROM 1950-1966 AND THE RELATIONSHIP OF CSLEA TO THE FUND FOR ADULT EDUCATION (FAE) THROUGH THE YEARS ARE STRESSED IN THIS HISTORY. DURING THE FIRST PHASE (1951-1955), THE CENTER'S ROLE WAS REFLECTIVE--IT STUDIED ADULT NEEDS AND ENCOURAGED LIBERAL ADULT EDUCATION CLASSES, COMMUNITY PROGRAMS, AND PROFESSIONAL LEADERSHIP. DURING THE SECOND PHASE (1956-1961) AN OPERATIONAL ROLE WAS ADDED, IN WHICH RESEARCH, PUBLICATION, INNOVATION AND FIELD WORK, AND CONSULTATION WERE CARRIED ON. WITH THE DISSOLUTION OF THE FAE IN 1961, THE CENTER FACED BUDGET AND INCREASED ANTI-LIBERAL PRESSURES. IT BECAME AFFILIATED WITH BOSTON UNIVERSITY IN 1964. THE PRESENT ROLE OF CSLEA IS MAINLY OPERATIONAL, MORE"NON-LIBERAL," AND MORE PREOCCUPIED WITH THE INSTRUMENTS OF HIGHER ADULT EDUCATION SUCH AS THE NEGRO COLLEGE PROJECT. AN ATTEMPT IS BEING MADE TO ACHIEVE A NEW BALANCE BETWEEN THE REFLECTIVE AND OPERATIONAL ROLES. THIS DOCUMENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE FROM THE CENTER FOR THE STUDY OF LIBERAL EDUCATION FOR ADULTS, 138 MOUNTFORT ST., BROOKLINE, MASSACHUSETTS 02146, FOR $1.50. (PT)
