In Honor of Dean and Mrs. Edmund G. Williamson and in Recognition of His Retirement April 9 and 10, 1969.
Darley, John G., Ed.
This booklet, in honor of Edmund Williamson, contains several articles. First T. R. McConnell discusses "The Impact of the Minnesota Student Personnel Program on Higher Education." He presents Williamson's theory on student personnel services (SPS) as being an integral part of the university. He also points out Williamson's philosophy on student participation and responsibility, as well as communication and university responsibility. Willis E. Dugan, in "The Impact of the Minnesota Viewpoint on Counseling Under the Leadership of Edmund G. Williamson, uses the Greek term arete in describing the development of the Minnesota SPS. Arete, while difficult to define, means an emphasis on man and his relation to the ideal of excellence. He goes on to describe three models for arete: (1) the Homeric, (2) the Sophistic, and (3) the Socratic. He uses these models to describe then the programs Williamson set up. He also discusses Williamson himself. The pamphlet concludes with an article by Edmund Williamson, "On Striving to Become a Liberally Educated Person." In this article, Williamson presents his philosophy of student responsibility and its relationship to violence and dissent. (KJ)
