The Holiversity. A Perspective on the Wright Report.
Adelman, Howard
After a decade of almost unlimited funds, the universities in Ontario are faced not only with declining enrollments but with an attack on their very function and role. The Wright Report, the final version of the Report of the Commission on Post-Secondary Education in Ontario, appeared early in 1973. It has engendered major controversy, and its intent and aims, if realized, will result in a totally changed relationship between society and the university. The author provides a philosophic and conceptual framework for the report. He places the primary issues in an historical context, examines the different perspectives of the State and the universities, and clarifies their fundamental agreements and disagreements. His vision of the Holiversity incorporates and transcents past and present models of the university and serves as a blueprint for the future. (Author)
