The College Campus in 1969: The Faculty.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
About 100 legislators from 15 Southern states met July 9-11, 1969 to consider the role of the college faculty member, his rights and responsibilities. In a series of papers presented at the conference, university administrators and faculty discussed the tenure system, academic freedom, faculty militancy, faculty role in governance, and typical duties and functions of professors in a complex university setting, an undergraduate college, and a community college. Recognizing the crisis in public confidence created by campus unrest, these papers intended to give public officials a clear picture of the relationships among members of the academic community. In a similar work conference held in 1968, the focus of consideration was the student. (JS)
