Dissent and the College Student in Revolt.
Blocker, Clyde E.
To the familiar list that usually includes the war in Viet Nam, racial discrimination, capitalistic exploitation of the consumer, a breakdown in family structure, political corruption, the weakening position of organized religion, and a shift in the values of a large segment of society as supposed causes of campus unrest, the author adds the development of an economy, and society based on the exploitation of scientific knowledge with virtually no commensurate progress in the application of the social sciences to our political institutions and processes. As appropriate institutional responses to student unrest, he suggests (1) a thorough and critical examination of the philosophy and mission of the college, and of the extent to which all involved understand these concepts, (2) a reconsideration of the organization and application of the guidance services as they relate to the present generation of students, and (3) involvement of students, faculty, administration, and boards of trustees in the development of the policies and procedures of the institution. Appended is a proposal for a student disciplinary procedure. (MC)
