The Reconstruction of an American College, Some Proposals for Rutgers College.
Susman, Warren I.
An intensive study of Rutgers College was made during the spring semester of the 1967-1968 school year for the purpose of evaluating the College's instructional program. The report examines many institutional functions within the context of current higher education concerns and their particular relationship to the perceived role of Rutgers College. Recommendations are made to revitalize, or to completely retain, some programs, policies or practices, depending on the extent of their contributions to the College's overall purpose. If they defeat general educational aims, it is proposed that they be discarded and efforts made to provide relevant, innovative educational experiences. Emphasis is placed on the development of a college self-identity, and the need to replace an outdated, rigidly administered instructional program with a "living" curriculum, based on flexible principles, that would adapt to ever-changing institutional and social needs. Other topics included in the report deal with student self-image, faculty and student participation in decision-making processes, college environment, individual fulfillment, and the improvement of teaching.
