Order and Freedom on the Campus. The Rights and Responsibilities of Faculty and Students.
Knorr, Owen A., Ed.; Minter, W. John, Ed.
These papers deal with the nature of student-faculty-administration relationships and the resulting discontent and tension on college and university campuses. Specifically, they are concerned with the problem of simultaneously maintaining individual freedom and campus order. Frederick Rudolph describes the changing patterns of authority and influence in American academic history. Some rights and responsibilities of faculty are outlined by Ralph Brown, with the assumption that the two are necessary concomitants. Primary is the right and responsibility to cherish and exercise academic freedom. An analysis of the dismissal of University of Illinois Professor Leo Koch is presented in "Case Studies in Academic Freedom." The Dean of Students at the University of Minnesota discusses the rights and responsibilities of students, emphasizing that students must learn to assume responsibility if they are to gain additional rights. The Free Speech Movement at Berkeley is discussed by 2 students and 2 faculty members at Berkeley in a panel discussion moderated by Terry Lunsford. The results of a study comparing the characteristics of participants and non-participants in the Berkeley Free Speech Movement are presented by Paul Heist. Paul Potter, past president of SDS, discusses student discontent and campus reform. Finally, the President of City College in New York City explores the question of "Who Runs the Institution.?"
