The Campus and the City: A Symposium.
Moore, E. Maynard, Ed.
This symposium was planned to provide a format for Ph.D. candidates in the Union Graduate School to join with leaders in higher education in open discussion of current issues in urban higher education. This report presents the substance of the presentations as recorded at each of five sessions. In "The Urban Crisis: Higher Education Faces the City," Bob McGill and Joe M. Smith discuss university-community relationships, problems of the academically underprepared, instructional relevance and the city as a learning laboratory. In "Community Colleges and Open Access in Urban Areas," E. Maynard Moore discusses the barriers of low income in access to higher education and describes the community college with its open admissions policy as a panacea; he also discusses new ways for community colleges to help community residents. Charles Isaacs recommends that teachers try to learn from their students and that the community college campus become the city itself. In "New Challenges, New Responses for Higher Education," Leander Jones discusses his experiences teaching theater arts and broadcasting skills in a state penitentiary. James Brown discusses "Resource Management and Accountability in Higher Education." The final session is a round table discussion on "The Changing Purposes of Higher Education." (DC)
