Toward Still Greater Professionalism.
Bartlett, Kenneth Gill
In this address, Dr. Bartlett relates the beginnings of University College of Syracuse University and its Continuing Education programs. He then suggests that as professional goals for Continuing Education are reviewed and priorities established, the need for new "services" will be thoroughly explored. Dr. Bartlett believes that this is the appropriate time for Higher Education to increase its "services," and that Continuing Education should act as the institution's agent in making known what the services are and how they might be used. As an illustration of one type of service that the university might offer, Dr. Bartlett discusses a frame-of-reference educational service on major current happenings, which would utilize non-commercial television stations and university faculty and community participants. From this, it is hoped, interested adults would be provided with an opportunity to review the many aspects of a public issue. At the conclusion of his address, Dr. Bartlett expresses the hope that more of his colleagues will become more familiar with what has made Higher Education so successful, including University College and Adult Education at Syracuse University. He also urges everyone in Higher Education to recapture the art of saying "thank-you" to those who help the colleges and universities. Dr. Bartlett reiterates the need for an expanded array of community and social services, changed annually, and centrally administered by Continuing Education. (DB)
