Challenge S
Higher Edu
Universities have the obligation
to try to satisfy' the public de-
mands, Prof. Arnold Kaufman of
the philosophy department said
last night.
Prof. Kaufman, discussing
"Trends and Issues in Higher Ed-
ucation" with Associate Dean
James Robertson of the litreary
college in a Challenge-sponsored
seminar, noted that discussions on
higher education are often con-
fused in one respect.
"In trying to answer what the
aims of a university are, we must
distinguish between the goals
which the university's officers
ought to be pursuing and the goals
one would ideally want the insti-
tution to pursue," Prof. Kaufman
Public Demands
Further, the officers of a uni-
versity in general ought to deter-
mine what the public demands are
if this is possible and then attempt
to satisfy these demands.
The difficultyin fulfilling such
-a task is the unclearness of the
public mandate, they agreed.
"The universities are remiss in
not explaining themselves to the
public. Hence the public is some-
what afraid of us - we hold the
keys of admission and they have
no way of figuring out what hap-
pens in'the four-year undergradu-
ate period. They have a blind faith
in -the rightness of what goes on
in higher education," Robertson
Responsive To Social Needs
But the university must be re-
sponsive to social needs and, most
important, it must be an instru-
ment of social change. This can
be accomplished by graduating
people who have a critical view of
the society in which they live
he explained.
"One of the university's idea
aims should- be to help people
start down the road to the 'exam-
ined life'. The other ideal aim is
to fill the social slots in society
with competent and responsibl
people," Prof. Kaufman noted.
The University performs the lat-
ter task very well, but it does not
