The academic community is recovering from recent shock waves of frequently violent student protest that challenged the traditional authority and even the basic purposes and structure of colleges and universities. The students were demanding reform in curriculum matters as well as in matters of educational administration. In this document a discussion is presented that was held to determine the answers to several questions: (1) To what degree were the student pressures for change justified? (2) What changes were being demanded? and (3) How have traditional relationships within centers of learning been affected? The participants in the discussion were: Dr. Martin J. Meade, Dean of Students and Associate Professor of Psychology at Ottawa University in Kansas; Harvey T. Stephens, Executive Vice President, ARA Services, Inc.; Dr. John R. Coleman, President of Haverford College, Haverford, Pennsylvania; Dr. Martha Peterson, President of Barnard College of Columbia University, New York; Dr. Fritz Machlup, Professor of Economics at New York University; and Peter P. Muirhead, Deputy U.S. Commissioner of Education. (HS)
