Who's in Charge? A Special Report.
Editorial Projects for Education, Inc., Baltimore, MD.
This short report outlines the roles and problems of college trustees, presidents, faculty, and students in governing their institutions. The main topic discussed is the burgeoning power of students and the differing aims of some of the major student organizations. The article emphasizes that factions must find ways to work together as a community to preserve academic freedom and avoid the total destruction of the university. The influences of the public, the alumni and the federal government are considered. The report notes that increasing numbers of institutions have devised or are seeking ways to make students an integral part of the campus decision-making process. It includes some suggestions of President Kingman Brewster (Yale University) for peaceful student involvement. (JS)
