Educational Strategies for Social Change. Papers and Proceedings of the Annual Convention, Lutheran Educational Conference of North America (56th, Houston, January 10-11, 1970).
Holcomb, Howard E., Ed.
The purpose of the Lutheran Educational Conference of North America is to explore problems in higher education, especially those related to Lutheran higher education. It also seeks to share information, suggest strategies, and assist member institutions in their programs. This volume contains the papers and proceedings of the 56th annual meeting. The first paper: "Educational Strategies for Social Change," by Sidney A. Rand, suggests some broad outlines for change: (1) the college must recognize its involvement in society; (2) the college must know its own theological and philosophical foundations; (3) a college must choose its priorities carefully; (4) a college needs to select carefully those areas of direct involvement where it seeks to effect change in society; and (5) a college should not forget that it is the product and a part of its society; it is itself therefore subject to change. Two commentaries by Joseph L. Knutson and Jeff Johnson follow this paper. The second paper is "What's so Special about a Lutheran College?" by Louis Almen. The third paper is "Higher Education Must Be Modernized," by C. C. Colvert. The Program, a Report of the Secretary-Treasurer, and lists of the Board of Directors and Institutional Presidents conclude the report. (AF)
