Reorientation in Labor Education; A Symposium on Liberal Education for Labor in the University. CSLEA Reports.
Goldman, Freda, H., Ed.
The existence and achievements of experimental, university-connected programs of liberal study for labor are discussed. First to be considered are the underlying problems and aims of both labor education and university liberal education. Next, specific programs are described: the Liberal Arts for Labor program offered through the Extension Division of UCLA; the United Steelworkers of America fourth year institute ("The World of Ideas"); the Institute Labor Program at Rutgers; the National Institute for Labor Education resident study program for union staff; and the two year Union Leadership Program at the University of Chicago for Chicago area trade union leaders. Patterns of nonuniversity-connected liberal education for trade unionists, and of liberal education in Canadian labor education, are also reviewed. Finally, common problems of winning support, providing for university union cooperation, and adapting programs to a union audience are summarized, together with suggested directions and approaches for seeking solutions.
