The Report of the President. Yale University: 1967-68.
Brewster, Kingman, Jr.
The governance of Yale University and the relationship of this institution to urban problems in New Haven are discussed within the framework of what the distinctive nature and central mission of a university should be. The first section of the report analyzes the roles of Yale University's faculty members, administrators, and students in its governmental structure, and presents five basic recommendations for increased participation by students and faculty and mutual respect among the three groups. The second section discusses the current commitment of Yale University to the solution of pressing social problems in New Haven in the areas of neighborhood development, health, social work, tutoring, legal assistance, and employment. Four ways are suggested in which the university could increase its contributions to the attack on the city's social and educational problems without diverting its resources or distracting its members from their primary goals.
