On Being Educated in 1991.
Bell, Terrel H.
This speech was delivered at a conference of student body presidents and college and university presidents. The major purpose of the conference was to help open and maintain clear channels of communication between those who run the colleges and universities, and those who attend them. The major points of the speech were: (1) education is not over at the diploma stage, because the price of survival in this society is life-long learning; (2) each person should develop a plan for life-long learning about the world he lives in. This plan should include the study of language, science, economics, ecology, mathematics, psychology, geopolitics, history and anthropology; (3) it is the task and responsibility of the institution's presidents to help the students to such a plan. The suggestion was made that each university president meet with his institution's student body president to help him formulate his plan for learning. (AF)
