The Extra-Curriculum. The Study of Education at Stanford. Report to the University.
Stanford Univ., CA.
This report, the sixth in a series of ten, was prepared by the Steering Committee, the Study of Education at Stanford. The series, based on the concept that education should be a continuous process of discovery throughout life, sets forth recommendations for strengthening the academic enterprise at Stanford. To enhance the educational value of extracurricular activities, this report offers 24 recommendations in 3 major areas--cultural events, publications, and athletics. The proposed changes are designed to promote the personal growth (i.e. self-esteem, interpersonal relations, creativity) of student participants. Recommendations cover the responsibilities of a proposed faculty-staff-student Committee on the Extracurriculum; the establishment of 3 additional physical facilities for extracurricular activities; improvements in the Stanford Daily, supplements to the Daily, literary and political publications, course evaluations, and non-student publications; and the division of the athletic department into 2 separate departments, the Department of Athletics (inter-collegiate) and the Department of Physical Education. Further recommendations deal with orienting freshmen athletes, organizing the Department of Physical Education, and integrating the Department of Athletics with the University community.
