American Council on Education, Washington, DC.
Chapter 1 of this report on campus unrest examines the nature of the crisis: the kinds of institutions where violence is most likely to occur; the issues that gave rise to protest including generational conflict, the social "irrelevance" of youth, obsolete educational practices, the breakdown of authority, and social malaise; and institutional reactions to this unrest. Chapter 2 discusses: (1) what's troubling the students - experiences of indifference and neglect, political impotence, lack of information, disciplinary or policy action, discrimination, bad teaching, etc. - (2) what's troubling the faculty - governance, departmental functioning, academic questions, relations with students, and university goals - (3) what's troubling administrators - faculty, financial problems, communication, governance, institutional goals, and student unrest - and (4) what's troubling the trustees - finances, the faculty and teaching, governance, student unrest, institutional goals and societal relations, and institutional leadership. Chapter 3 contains recommendations regarding the roles and reponsibilities of students, faculty, administrators, and trustees. Statistical tables on campus unrest 1968-69 are included at the end of the report. (AF)
