The Non-Traditional Student in Higher Education.
Gilbert, Larry L., Ed.; Lantaff, Ronald, Ed.
A report on the 1976 Pacific Northwest Conference on Higher Education includes introductory comments on a nontraditional conference by Ronald Lantaff, three addresses on the non-traditional student, panel discussions, and information about the business session, member institutions, conference participants, and conference proceedings. In the first address, "The Traditional Student: The University View," Myron L. Coulter discusses the need to know the student better and presents information on public attitudes toward American colleges and universities, demographic changes that affect higher education, and characteristics of today's college student. A second address, "The Community College and the Non-Traditional Student" by James L. Taylor, considers the student who is ill-prepared for traditional college study and the need for different teaching approaches. The third address, "The Non-Traditional Student: The Broader View," by Perry Swisher, discusses the American Indian and cultural differences from the larger American society. (SW)
