From the Beginning: Commencement Addresses and Selected Papers.
Heilbron, Louis H.
Commencement addresses and selected papers of Louis H. Heilbron are presented that cover two decades of California higher education, although most address educational issues of the 1960s. Some are historical documents, while others contain advice to graduates. Topics range from teacher education, occupational training, and admission standards to academic governance, collective bargaining, and the role of trustees. The addresses also deal with some major achievements of the California state college system in the formative years. Nine articles on educational mission include the following topics: academic freedom, the values of a liberal education, and the changing role of education in California. Topics addressed in six articles on governance include: the uses and abuses of trustees, bridging the gap between the college and the community, and employment relations of academic personnel in the California State Colleges. Five articles on student unrest deal with the aspirations of youth, state colleges and the youth revolution, and the relationship between the school and the community. Finally, public expectations concerning educational standards are addressed, along with remarks from the dedication of the California State University Archives. (SW)
