Friends World College. Report on Evaluation Visit, September 16-17, 1969.
Jerome, Judson
This report discusses Friends World College (FWC), an experimental and innovative institution on Long Island. FWC is committed to creating change agents to bring about a better world. It considers itself an agency for bringing students into contact with resources, and it considers the functions of its program to be less in the realm of supplying information and more in the realm of formation of character and achievement of direction and purpose. It is impossible to assess the College by conventional standards, because it is not a conventional institution. This report reviews the admission criteria, which includes the desire by the applicant to change the world; living accommodations (barracks about to be torn down); the educational program which demands the keeping of a journal by the students; the living and work experience in foreign countries; the language program; accreditation and evaluation procedures; the financial situation, and the institution's governance.
