Report of the President's Committee on the Future University of Massachusetts.
Massachusetts Univ., Amherst.
This committee report seeks to answer 5 basic questions regarding the future of the University of Massachusetts. These questions are: (1) who will attend; (2) what they will be taught; (3) where they will study; (4) when in their lives they will participate; and (5) how the institution will serve the Commonwealth beyond its students. Briefly the answers to these questions are: (1) the University should provide an education for anyone in the state who desires one; (2) the students should be taught what they want to learn and emphasis should be put on individualized majors; (3) the University should expand and go to the student rather than having the student come to it in many cases; (4) persons of all ages should be allowed to participate in higher education and emphasis should be placed on adult education; and (5) the University should provide a diversity of educational opportunities and institutions for the benefit of the Commonwealth as a whole.
