University Resources and Human Relations Committees.
It is important that ways be found for the resources of the university to be used in improving relations among the divergent and conflicting groups in local communities. The primary resource, education, can be used in creating new channels of communication. It can also bring together academicians, professionals in human relations, citizen leaders, and other concerned people. Although communication will not solve the problems, it will increase the capacity of conflicting groups to find common solutions. The most significant, although the most difficult, role the university can play in the community is to serve as critic and redefiner. (DS)
