Urban Curricula and the Liberal Arts College. Paper Number 5.
Jacobson, Elden; Palmer, Parker J.
This document, the fifth of seven essays, investigates the relationship of the church, the university and urban society in the area of urban curricula and the liberal arts college. Particular attention is placed on "urban semester" programs and their conceptual and practical weaknesses. Alternative ways for addressing a critical dimension of modern society are discussed. Emphasis is placed upon the role of the "citizen", "social invention", and the academic politics of the liberal arts efforts to respond to urban needs. Related documents are HE 004 355, HE 004 366, and HE 004 356. (Author/MJM)
