Colloquy: A Student-Initiated Reform in Higher Education.
Hull, W. Frank, IV
Following initial unsuccessful attempts, the first "Colloquy" program, a student-initiated attempt to reform higher education, was established at the University Park Campus of the Pennsylvania State University. The program was based on (a) nationally known figures addressing a large gathering; (b) nineteen panels involving a total of between 47 and 50 panelists outside the University and 30 to 40 panelists from within the University; and (c) movies, dramatic presentations and other media techniques used throughout the weekend. The success of this experience led to a second program held during the summer term. Based on these two successful experiences, a third "Colloquy" program in 1969 was organized. This experience was a successful unstructured educational experience offering student and faculty avenues of communication. (MJM)
