Logs, Universities and the Environmental Education Compromise.
Described are changes in American higher education and the impact on students and society. The early liberal arts colleges, the influence of the German universities and specialization, and efforts to restore integrated and broad studies are considered. The author stresses that environmental education requires broad thinking and that it should be understood as a multidisciplinary process rather than as a discipline. Environmental education is viewed as providing the persuasive rationale for broad, integrated education that general education lacked. Several challenges to environmental education are presented; potential problems are also identified. The need for a team approach to research and instruction is emphasized. (RH)
