Current and Developing Issues in Student Life.
Covert, Richard; And Others
The university, in terms of its functions, can be viewed as a social critic, an implementer of social change, and a provider of associates for students as they develop critical facilities through the process of disciplined reflection. The problems concerned with increasing institutional commitment to partisan groups and the maintenance of the dual role of critic and implementer of social change are considered. Disciplined reflection by students can be sided by the presence of older people, manageable groups for easy and open communication, and flexibility in organizational arrangements which permit the formation of groups around topics important to the individual. Changes in relationships between students and the college which replace the in loco parentis role are discussed. The need for improvements in present and proposed student housing is studied. Changing student attitudes and the norms for acceptable student behavior are discussed in relation to the impact of ideas on society. The increasing role of students in governing the university is discussed. (PS)
