Higher Education and Social Change: The Continuing Impact of the Sixties.
Welcher, Paul
DOXA: Newsletter of the Structured Year Program, v2 n2 Nov-Dec 1983
Major issues that emerged in the interplay of higher education and society in the 1960s and are relevant today are considered in a newsletter article. It is noted that the social movements of the 1960s that began on the campus continue to fundamentally change society, and these changes will also force higher education to play a different role in the future. The growth of two-year colleges is seen as an attempt to cope with the open admissions policy. It is concluded that, like society as a whole, higher education is having a difficult time and must fend off external forces that want to use it for repressive political reasons. (SW)
