University Without Walls: A Proposal for an Experimental Degree Program in Undergraduate Education.
Union for Experimenting Colleges and Universities, Yellow Springs, OH.
This proposal outlines an alternative plan for undergraduate work that can lead to a college degree. The project, called the University Without Walls, is being implemented in a total of 16 institutions in which groups of 75 to 100 students are participants. The project abandons almost all traditional aspects of college education, in that it serves persons of all ages, is operated away from the traditional classroom, has as instructors persons outside of the academic field, emphasizes student self-direction in learning, and aims to produce not finished graduates but life-long learners. Moreover, the program is so organized that it promises in time to reduce the costs of higher education without impairing quality and standards of student undergraduate educational programs. (HS)
