The Relevancy of Graduate Education.
Hartshorn, H. Hadley
The role of the graduate school in the education of the disadvantaged graduate student and in the solution of domestic problems are among the most important issues facing graduate education. Undergraduate institutions must devote increasingly greater portions of their time, facilities and personnel to alleviating educational deficiencies resulting from inadequate preparation of students. It is the responsibility of the graduate school to develop and implement programs to bring disadvantaged students into the intellectual and technological mainstream of society. The graduate school must become involved in applied education, i.e., in establishing specific machinery, including special departments, to study and propose solutions for socioeconomic problems of ethnic groups. Graduate education must address itself to the needs of academically disenfranchised students and to social problems. (AF)
