The Role of the Junior College in the Urban Revolution.
Los Angeles City Coll., CA.
A combination of 350 community, student, and college leaders from four counties participated in a conference on the role of the junior college in the urban revolution. The keynote speaker, whose remarks are included, addressed himself to the nature of the urban revolution with emphasis on the plight of the individual in seeking self-identity. Following this speech, participants broke up into 10 groups that concentrated on certain problem areas. Some concerns of these workshops, all of which are listed here with some of their recommendations, included how the junior college can provide a climate of freedom with responsibility, how it can aid the urban student, how it can create innovations in curriculum, and how it can improve human relations. Workshop recommendations were sent to appropriate groups at Los Angeles City College. A progress report on the school's reactions to these recommendations is a part of the report. From remarks of conference speakers, it can be concluded (1) that one of the major characteristics of the urban revolution is a reaction against the increasing complexity of occupational and status interrelations and (2) that all members of the junior college community should make an effort to understand the nature of the urban revolution and act accordingly.
