Growing Time. Selected Papers from the Michigan State Leadership Seminars.
DeCrow, Roger, Ed.
Ten essays from the Michigan State Leadership Seminars discuss the social imperatives confronting adult education and what the university can do and ought to be doing about them. The impact of the population explosion, urbanization, automation, the knowledge explosion, and the Bomb make it imperative that new concepts of work and leisure be built into the culture. The role of the university in meeting these problems remains a moot question. It seems clear that without tension generated from within and without, the university would lose its intellectuality and relevancy. The limits of involvement of the university are debated but its role should at least be training the intellect, demonstrating the importance of lifelong learning, and being a detached societal critic; and it should avoid the role of a social agency. Within this context careful articulation of the counseling service and a cadre of curriculum specialists seem to offer promise for pushing ahead with an integrated continuing curriculum. (dm)
