A Comment On Professor Hook's Paper, Julius G. Getman Oct 1973

A Comment On Professor Hook's Paper, Julius G. Getman

IUSTITIA

I start with the concession that much of what Professor Hook says is true. Not to recognize this would be folly. Hook's condemnation of academic violence is necessary, justified, and important. Ultimately, however, the picture he draws and the conclusions he states are misleading.

Academic freedom is indeed in jeopardy, but not merely from the internal sources Hook mentions. Outside pressures exist as well. Professor Hook suggests that by establishing a criminal law system, universities can successfully cope with student violence. Having been involved at almost every level of the internal judicial process at the university, I am convinced ...


Higher Education: The Black Professional, Donald H. Godbold, Andrew Goodrich, William Moore, Jr., Oct 1973

Higher Education: The Black Professional, Donald H. Godbold, Andrew Goodrich, William Moore, Jr.,

IUSTITIA

The black professional in the community college is a catalog of contradictions. His or her condition can only be described as tragic; and his or her plight is a travesty on the philosophy of the two-year college. The preliminary findings of one study in progress note that nearly half (409 or 47 per cent) of the 865 two-year institutions included in the sample do not have a single black faculty member or administrator. Eighty-nine of the remaining 456 colleges have only one black staff member. Similarly, there are a number of community colleges located in areas heavily populated by blacks ...


Affirmative Action: Quotas And Traditional University Standards With Particular Emphasis On The Role Of The Department Chairman, William D. Wheeler Oct 1973

Affirmative Action: Quotas And Traditional University Standards With Particular Emphasis On The Role Of The Department Chairman, William D. Wheeler

IUSTITIA

The higher educational institution is often an exclusive citadel. Students are selected after close scrutiny of past achievements. Teachers as merchants of ideas, virtues, and cosmic thoughts are invited to membership only after certain academic passports have been acquired. These eligibility criteria are established by the faculty who, presumably, are the only ones capable of assessing reasonable standards for those seeking admission. Colleges and universities are closed sub-communities. They practice discrimination while giving lip service to liberal thought, knowledge, and enlightenment. It comes, therefore, as little surprise to clear thinkers that the house of intellect leads the parade of culprits ...

Two Papers Delivered At A Symposium, "The Response Of Society To Unusual And Extreme Pressure Groups," Presented At Indiana University School Of Law, Sidney Hook, Michael I. Sovern

IUSTITIA

The following articles by Professor Hook and Dean Sovern are derived from talks delivered at a symposium, "The Response of Society to Unusual and Extreme Pressure Groups," presented at Indiana University School of Law on November 6, 1970. While the door has apparently closed upon the period of ghetto and campus riots of the la te six ties and early seven ties, the fundamental issues of human righ ts which they raised remain unresolved. The symposium attempted to assess the origins, consequences, and remedies for these conflicts. The recent confrontation between American Indians and federal troops at Wounded Knee, South ...
