The two major addresses presented before the 1970 conference of the Association of Urban Universities concerned: (1) the Office of Urban Affairs of the American Council on Education whose purpose is to encourage and assist institutions of higher education to relate their programs to urban needs; and (2) the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) of the College Entrance Examination Board, a program designed to enable students to earn credit via equivalency tests. Goals for the members of the Association were discussed including admissions for minority students, community service programs, resource utilization, institutional governance, politics, and campus unrest. In addition, 13 new member institutions were admitted to the Association. (HS)
