Some courses In the New University should be In operation today, according to the New University Executive Committee. A detailed listing of courses was printed In yesterday's News.
Many of the courses sound quite interesting, such as "Why People Vote for Delbert Latta" and "Contemporary Bullshit."
Enrolling in the New University couldn't be simpler. The student merely shows up at the time and place of the first class meeting. At the first meetings of each class, scheduling of class sessions and other details will be worked out. There are no limits on the number of New University courses a student can take.
According to the New U. Executive Committee, two things will have been accomplished by the end of the quarter of the project is a success:
--Students will have been made aware of certain problems, the difficulties of solutions and their own relation to such problems and solutions.
--Students will have participated in self designed or group designed action toward certain definite goals, arrived at by each college or each course director.
As we see it, the New U. is an invaluable addition to the existing academic structure largely because of Its flexibility.
Regular courses in most departments, though serving the vital function of giving students a groundwork of information in a particular field, do not lend themselves to the study of a current crisis, the aspects of which may include facets of several academic disciplines. They are not broad enough.
But the New U.? The problems discussed In many of the courses pull in aspects of history, sociology, political science, and Innumerable other fields. Since the courses are issue-oriented, there are few limits on types of information which can be drawn into the courses.
A large number of regular faculty members, graduate students, and undergraduates have donated much of their time to get the New U. started. This is time spend in addition to their other work.
We hope their work pays off with the success of the New U. It needs your help.
