Affirmation and Adaptation: Values and the Elite Residential College.
Gomes, Peter J.
Daedalus, v128 n1 p101-19 Win 1999
Argues that if the American residential college envisions itself as the conscience of American undergraduate education, it must embrace the formation of conscience as a central mission. It must assume responsibility for helping to shape values, because moral education is too important an institutional and societal value to be left entirely to individual and private cultivation.
