With Emphasis on the Education in Co-Educational Living.
Duncan, James P.
In this article, the author advocates co-educational residence halls for college/university campuses. He argues that this living arrangement is more natural and promotes the fullest possible development of the individual through meaningful relationships with the same and opposite sex; it helps to teach the residents personal and social integration and to solidify sexual identity. The author discusses the meaning of co-ed arrangements, how single sex buildings can be adapted and to whom (and why) co-ed living should be offered. The multiple advantages for student and housing administrators of co-ed living are listed. It is mentioned that the issue posed in pursuing the subject of co-ed housing is related to the extent to which colleges can come to grips explicitly with sexual behavior as it relates to "residential education." In summary, the author states that he is advocating, based on student developmental needs, co-educational living as a vital component of residential education. (Author)
