This document contains the proceedings of a seminar concerned with the systematic development of the concept of life-long learning. The three most critical issues were identified as the adult learner, organization, and finance. Five major addresses and the reports of the workshops on the three issues are presented. Keynote speaker E. E. Dubois presents the concept of "androgogy"--adult education methodology--as a basis for human resources development. This concept calls for a new breed of adult educator, the manager of instruction. S. M. Grabowski looks at community needs assessment for colleges and suggests a needs identification and implementation process based on a dynamic operational philosophy for the college. J. Freeman explains the methods of Xerox Learning Systems and outlines an approach to college-industry cooperation in industrial training. H. Lisson reviews the relationship between education and industrial training and describes a "typical" industrial training program. P. A. Miller discusses community-serving colleges, the revolution in assumptions about higher education and the right to self-development and satisfying work, and making the college experience an integral part of "real life."
