AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES IN TRANSITION AND THE NEW ROLE OF ADULT EDUCATION, FOURTH MANSBRIDGE MEMORIAL LECTURE, (UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS, JUNE 16, 1966).
TOLLEY, WILLIAM PEARSON
THE MODERN UNIVERSITY MUST ADVANCE KNOWLEDGE AS WELL AS CONSERVE AND TRANSMIT IT. GROWTH OF LIBRARIES, INCREASES IN GRADUATE STUDY, DEEPER INVOLVEMENT IN THE FINE ARTS AND IN BOOK PUBLISHING, INTERNATIONAL STUDENT EXCHANGE, FEDERALLY SPONSORED RESEARCH AND INSTRUCTION, AND EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTING ARE ALL DYNAMIC TRENDS IN UNIVERSITIES TODAY, BUT THE GREATEST IS CONTINUING EDUCATION. HIGHER ADULT EDUCATION HAS GROWN BECAUSE OF MORE LEISURE TIME, THE PAPERBACK REVOLUTION, PREPARATION FOR RETIREMENT, AND THE DEMAND FOR NEW SKILLS TO MEET RAPID CHANGES IN BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY. SUCH SPECIAL COLLECTIONS AS THE LIBRARY FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION AT SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY REFLECT A RISING CONCERN FOR THE SPECIAL NEEDS OF NONRESIDENT, PART TIME, ADULT STUDENTS. EXPANDED HIGHER ADULT EDUCATION WILL LEAD TO A GROWTH IN UNIVERSITY PRESSES, SPONSORED RESEARCH, INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS, AND CONCERN FOR METROPOLITAN PROBLEMS AND URBAN EXTENSION. (LY)
