New Directions in Higher Education.
Sanford, Nevitt; And Others
This is a report of the proceedings of the 1971 Northern California Educational Conference. The Conference was small in scale, with less than one hundred participants; short in duration, lasting for only a part of a day; but presented two main speakers. Participants were particularly stimulated by being told that making the educational environment more humane was still a basic goal of some and a possible new thrust for others in the coming years. The conference was opened by Fred F. Harcleroad, president of the American Testing Program (ACT). He discussed the two major trends in higher education. The first trend is a reassessment of all institutions in higher education. The second trend is the emergence of students who in the past would not have been offered the opportunity of higher educatin. This was followed by a discussion of the impact of the new student on higher education by Edwin S. Lingelhofer. The conference was conducted with a paper by Nevitt Sanford on humanizing education beyond the secondary school. (BW/Author)
