EDUCATION TODAY INFLUENCES AND IS INFLUENCED BY FIVE SOCIAL PROCESSES--(1) CONTRACTION OF SPACE AND TIME, BRINGING ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD CLOSER TOGETHER, (2) TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT AND CHANGE IN THE LABOR FORCE FROM PRODUCTION OF GOODS TO THE DISTRIBUTION AND CONSUMPTION OF GOODS, (3) URBANIZATION AND METROPOLITAN DEVELOPMENT, CAUSING DETERIORATION OF THE CENTRAL CITIES AND GROWTH OF THE SUBURBS, (4) WORLD INTERDEPENDENCE AND COOPERATION, BOTH POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC, WITH THE CONSEQUENT DIMINUTION OF THE WHITE NATIONS' POWER, AND (5) SOCIAL INTEGRATION AND MOBILITY OF PEOPLE WITH DIVERSE ECONOMIC, NATIONAL, RACIAL, AND POLITICAL BACKGROUNDS. THE JUNIOR COLLEGE MUST ADAPT ITSELF TO ALL OF THESE CONDITIONS BY PROVIDING A GREAT VARIETY OF CURRICULA (VOCATIONAL, TECHNICAL, AND ACADEMIC) FOR AN ENROLLMENT EXPECTED TO DOUBLE IN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "THE NORTH CENTRAL ASSOCIATION QUARTERLY," VOLUME 41, NUMBER 3, WINTER 1967. (HH)
