The University and the Community.
Mehta, Mohan S.
Upon reception of the William Pearson Tolley Medal for distinguished leadership in adult education, Mohan S. Mehta, president of the Indian Adult Education Association, spoke on the civilization and culture of India, its long history, and its modern problems in the field of education. In the face of formidable problems in such areas as economics, nutrition, population, and technology, India must develop a system of adult education and a method for effectively combatting mass illiteracy. Although the percentage of illiterate adults within the population is decreasing, the number continues to grow. The university in India has been generally unconcerned with its social milieu, conservative on providing community services, and apathetic on social problems. As in any society, this attitude must be overcome if enough mature leadership is to be found. The world would be a better place if the cultural values and norms on which adult education is based became the dominant values. (mf)
