Oakland Papers: Symposium on Social Change and Educational Continuity. Notes and Essays on Education for Adults, 51.
Drucker, Peter F.; And Others
The symposium was a result of an experimental alumni education program at Oakland University which was sponsored by the Kellogg Foundation and brought about by Oakland's intent to establish a new university relationship with its graduates based on continuing education. In "The University in an Educated Society" Peter Drucker speaks of learning patterns demanded by a highly technical society. Max Lerner illuminates the global crises man faces as a builder of society and the learning competencies his tasks will require in his essay "The University in an Age of Revolutions." In "The University and the Age of Anxiety" Rollo May provides an exploration of man's drive for an expanding consciousness, and the needs this process generates which current educational practices do not meet."The University and Institutional Change" by Margaret Mead addresses a crucial institutional problem: how can educational institutions suitable to our age be fashioned when invariably we must begin in the middle of old commitments and dispositions?
