In this annual convention of the Association of University Evening Colleges (AUEC), emphasis was on the universities' proper urban extension role and responsibility in the inner city, and on steps toward greater flexibility and wider educational opportunities in higher continuing education. Whitney Young's keynote speech on the need to correct white racism was followed by commentary and questions and answers. Another speaker, from Oxford University, discussed the new social responsibility of English universities. In his own address, the AUEC president suggested 12 questions and problems for consideration or decisive action. Discussion sessions dealt with specific institutional responses to inner city educational needs (including leadership development and liberalized student recruitment and admission); academic credit by examination; adult degrees; noncredit certificate programs; continuing education in business and industry; and problems relating to student personnel services, registration, publicity, admission and transfer, formal evaluation procedures, and part time faculty and students. (The document includes business sessions, committee reports, a financial statement, AUEC committees and structure, past presidents and annual meetings.) (ly)
