Land grant colleges establish

nation's colleges and universities
have taken a "finger in the dike"
approach to solving the "urban
crisis." Individual institutions have
developed projects with little or no
knowledge of what others are
doing. This isolation and ignor-
ance has prevented regional or na-
tional cooperation in higher ed-
ucation's attack on urban ills.
Now the National Association of
State Universities and Land
Grant Colleges (NASULGC) has
established a Committee on Urban
Problems to serve as a clearing-
house for inner-city projects.
Announcement of the new com-

solutions to urban problems, and versities can make the greatest.
because of the Association's his- contribution.

NASULGC president-elect Fred
H. Harrington of the University
of Wisconsin explained that the
land grant system was established
in 1862 to provide special oppor-
tunity for the poor people of that
time-farmers and mechanics.
The old land grant association,
which merged in 1963 with two
other state university groups to
form the NASULGC, was the main
representative of schools involved
in solving the problems of an
agricultural society.

First, he said, they- can helpz
improve lo c a l government by
stimulating and training man-
power. Universities can work to
make citizen participation in ur-
ban affairs more effective. And
they can conduct basic inquiries'
into the concept of urban develop-
ment, helping to answer the ques-;
tions about the kinds of cities we
The state universities and land

After the association has com-
piled its data, it plans to turn
copies of the statistical results and
the original questionnaires over
to individual faculty members for
their own use.
The questionnaire being used
by the association was developed
in a joint effort by the association
and the assembly committee. Both
groups ran tests of questionnaires
before deciding on a final form.
The course evaluation will cover
most literary college courses ex-

of the program will dep nd on

"It is in fact nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of inquiry have not
yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from
stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom . ..It is a very grave mistake to think that the
enjoyment of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty."
-Albert Einstein
Forcing students to take undesired courses is not only academically unsound, but is
also a direct violation of a student's right to conduct his academic life as he chooses.
The LS&A College deprives students of this right by imposing foreign language and
distribution requirements.
