The University Council on Education for Public Responsibility: 1961-1975. Occasional Papers No. 43.
Davis, Granville D.
A reference source to the University Council on Education for Public Responsibility, the document covers the formation, functions, and development of the Council over the past 14 years. Chapter 1 provides an historical background of the Council. The following two chapters describe specific cooperative projects initiated by the Council. One project was the urbanism project, demonstrating the positive and negative forces at work in the city, which resulted in the nationally televised "Metropolis: Creator or Destroyer?" and a book of readings, "Metropolis: Values in Conflict." Another less successful project was the study of automation. Chapter 4 deals with reorganization and revision for a more viable organization; Chapter 5 covers new directions in adopting the national conference concept and describes the 1970, 1972, 1973, and 1974 national conferences. The concluding chapters, 6 and 7, provide an evaluative assessment of the organization and implications for the future. Approximately one-half of the document consists of five appendixes pertaining to organizational and planning meetings, proposals, by-laws, national conference programs, and a book outline. (EA)
