New Patterns in Higher Education.
Marland, S. P., Jr.
In his speech on Founder's Day at Minnesota Metropolitan State College, the U.S. Commissioner of Education praises the experimental college for its innovative approach to higher education. Minnesota Metropolitan is providing such flexibility in departing from the traditional place and schedule of academic studies, in departing from the traditional age requirements for students, and in departing from the traditional preconceptions of higher education--studies isolated from the realities of daily life and all too often unrelated to the needs of the individual student or to the needs of the society in which he lives.
