The conference participants agreed on the great need for workers in the helping services. The manpower shortage continues to grow because of diverse pressures for new patterns in health, education, and welfare. The conference emphasized the role of liberal arts colleges in the education, at the undergraduate level, of helping service personnel. Curriculum reorganization and specific programs were discussed. A number of presentations considered the problems of change in philosophy and curriculum at the undergraduate level. Recommendations of the conference focus on greater cooperation and communication among helping service agencies, government agencies, and the universities. (NS)
