The University and the Community.
Campbell, Duncan
This paper presented views on the role of the university, and particularly the University of Alberta, in the community in the 1970s. Such indicators as population growth, income growth, rising level of education, rising levels of taxation, the rapidity of technological advance, shifts in social pattern, all pointed to a rapidly growing demand on universities for direct services by an adult public. The modern university must be seen as a place of lifetime learning. Adults require and will demand full access (in a sense, ownership) to institutions which their tax dollars support. Deliberate involvement of the public is an issue which invites thoughtful consideration. A variety of adjustments to the typical university organization has the potential to provide encouragement and opportunities for formal and informal learning to the community. In the generous service, direct and indirect, of all its constituents, youth and adults, the university would be serving itself. (PT)
