The Intercultural Imperative.
Carpenter, John; Plaza, Galo
This publication is based on presentations prepared for the International Luncheon Program of the AASCU Annual Meeting in Washington, D. C. In addition to an introductory speech by Dr. Samuel L. Myers, the work contains a main address, response, and commentary. Dr. John Carpenter, speaking in the main address of the interculture imperative, makes an appeal to reform general education which is often ethnocentric by the infusion of intercultural dimensions. Rather than proliferate special and elective programs, the author feels that there is a need to incorporate international dimensions in general programs. Planning suggestions for the creation of the intercultural dimension in university curricula conclude the address. Mr. Galo Plaza, in a response to Dr. Carpenter, reviews reasons why a new international dimension is important to American education at all levels. In the commentary speech, Dr. Stanford Cazier concurs with Dr. Carpenter, stressing that general education in the U. S. needs to be reconceptualized. (SJM)
