Summary

Following a short introduction about the current status of student unrest and campus disruption, this paper discusses the contributing factors: (1) the unique aspects of the present generation gap; (2) confusion on the role of the university in contemporary society; (3) the inability, on the basis of their organizational structure, of universities to change systematically and rapidly; (4) the prominence of reactive, remediational styles in dealing with students, as opposed to styles which emphasize prevention and student development; (5) the inability of the university to act decisively and effectively; and (6) the inability of the university to discipline promptly and effectively. Suggestions about what can be done are offered: (1) develop a preventive program of crisis intervention and conflict management; (2) deal decisively with disruption; (3) when necessary, act quickly and decisively; and (4) develop orderly disciplinary procedures and processes. The paper concludes by urging the university to deal with educational reform, and implies that this would ultimately be the most effective measure in dealing with the problem. (TL)
