Proceedings of the Annual Meeting of the Western Association of Graduate Schools (11th, Las Vegas, Nevada, March 2-4, 1969).
Idaho State Univ., Pocatello.
This is the report of the 1969 annual conference of the Western Association of Graduate Schools. The first general meeting held at the conference presented 3 speeches by minority students from the area graduate schools. Discussed in these addresses were the problems confronting the American Indian, Mexican American, and black students as students in the schools. The second general session of the conference dealt with the question of whether or not the graduate school is a threat to undergraduate education. In the 2 addresses presented at this session it was established that graduate education is not only not a threat, but that undergraduate education has never been better. The third session presented addresses that pointed out the pros, cons, and institutional barriers to urban action programs within the graduate school. The fourth session presented remarks concerning the professionalization of graduate education, and the fifth session dealt with the changing expectations of graduate students. The sixth and final session was a business meeting at which new officers were elected and various resolutions made. (HS)
