Summary

Although research on creativity has had virtually no impact on higher education except in rare instances, the chances are good that this will change in the 1970s. Creativity research has had an increasingly greater effect on pre-primary, primary and secondary education, and more and more students are prepared to do such research when they enter college. Studies indicate, however, that the creative student can find few outlets in the university and has a higher dropout rate than the non-creative student. Traditional tests, admission policies, and the awarding of scholarships and fellowships are all geared to the conventional student and tend to discriminate against the creative student, often a member of a minority group. Students want to acquire creative problem-solving skills, and colleges and universities can no longer afford to ignore the needs of their creative, and, possibly, most productive students. (AF)
