SOCIAL ROLE, GRADUATES, COUNSELING:
Conferees Examine Educational Issues
(EDITOR'S NOTE: These are the
fifth, sixth and seventh in a series
of 16 articles covering the Confer-
ence on the University sessions,
which took place Friday and Satur-
By KAREN KENAH
Increased awareness of higher
education's role in society was
the theme of "The University and
Social Change," one of 16 discus-
sion group topics included in last
Friday and Saturday's Conference
on the University.
There was general agreement
that the University should involve
itself with those social issues
which are relevant in some way
to its effective operation as an
A question was raised on the
exact responsibility of the Univer-
sity as a part of society. Michael
Zweig, '64, held that the Univer-
sity sets an example and is re-
sponsible for acting accordingly at
all times. "If the University has
as its, premise free inquiry, it
suggest that an effort be made to
re-establish it," he said.
The group felt that not enough
emphasis is placed on the relation-
ship of courses to society.
Zweig suggested that there be
involvement in society for social
science classes. The group agreed
that there might be greater edu-
cational value in a paper that in-
volved direct contact with people
and issues in the community than
in library research.
The role of the University as an
expanding institution found a split
in opinions. One faction believed
in limited growth to maintain
quality. "The problem is not solv-
ed by setting up lesser institu-
tions," Prof. Feingold claimed.
Advocates of expansion said that
the University has a responsibil-
ity to educate as many state resi-
dents as possible.

of the educative purpose of the in- the relation between graduate and

dents are far more goal-oriented
and have much less time to parti-
cipate in extra-curricular activities
than undergraduates. The group
said that undergraduates feel a
certain "class distinction" with re-
gard to graduates.
Thus, between the teaching fel-
low and his students there tends
to be a formal relationship which
Peter Burian, Grad, declared an
impediment to genuine communi-
cation. The unusually motivated
student may lose an opportunity to
fully participate in his courses,
On the other ,hand, the teach-
ing fellow must bend over back-.
wards to avoid "playing favorites."
Prof. Phillip Jay of the dental
school thought that the formality
thereby imposed in no way hinders
the student. He said that any nec-
essary communication could take
place quite easily within the teach-
In regard to teaching fellows
who are actually poor instructors,
Mrs. McEldowney suggested that
there should be standards for
teaching other than just admission
to graduate school.
Some of the conferees thought
graduates might serve best as
,ounselors for undergraduates; this
would encourage more contact be-
tween the two groups.
The problem of the graduate and
undergraduate student in the same
class was also raised. Rosen asked
if the teacher should teach the
more elemental aspects of the
course, perhaps boring the gradu-
ate, or go into more detail and
risk losing the undergraduate.
There seemed to be no satisfactory
solution to this problem.
Rosen proposed that in a course
that contained mostly undergrad-
uates, the graduate might lead
"sub-discussion" groups and act as,
a sort of tutor for the undergradu-,

A major problem resulting from
the University environment is the
isolation of students and faculty,
members of the conference session
on "University Environment and7
Student Counseling" agreed.

Mayhew, an instructor in the so-
ciology department, indicated that
there is a need for a "link between

Group members agreed that the
University should establish a co-

DEAN HERBERT M. JOHE
Dean Herbert Johe of the arch-
itecture and design college point-
ed out that academic counselors
are the only ones that every stu-
dent must see during the academic
year. Consequently, he and Prof.
Wendell Hewson of the engineer-
ing college suggested that the im-
portance of quality counseling be
given institutional recognition.
Faculty group members scored
the present method of selecting
academic counselors from candi-
dates so low in seniority that they
have no choice of assignment.
Prof. Hewson proposed that abil-
ity in counseling be considered as
a basis for faculty promotion as
an "incentive factor" for better
Dean Johe suggested that per-
haps faculty members near retire-
ment age might make the most
able counselors in terms of exper-
ience and interest in students.
Student conference members
suggested that an alternative
means of improving the Univer-
sity's contact with students would
be to institutionalize non-academ-
Aron Kandie, Grad, said that
the University often "is not aware
of strains producing "academic fa-
tigue" and tensions in a great
