The Roote and Rise of the Same.
Proctor, Alvin H.
As universities and colleges face the future in an increasingly complex society, they must radically alter their character. The past decade, which began with an unprecedented expansion of university research and graduate education, has ended with confusion and much uncertainty. The Council of Graduate Schools has developed the organizational structure and the will to deal with the major issues of the '70s. The Committee on Policies, Plans and Resolutions, established in 1968, is one of the important mechanisms for studying and substantively changing graduate education. New committees include one on University-Federal Relations, one on Post-Baccalaureate Programs to study substantive academic matters involved in graduate education, and a Committee on Graduate Assistants. The Committee on the Preparation of College Teachers has issued a policy statement on the emerging Doctor of Arts Degree, recognizing the critical need for more attention to the quality of undergraduate teaching. These committees and the increasing involvement of deans of graduate schools will allow the Council to speak authoratively on and deal effectively with issues and problems in graduate education. (AF)
