32 p. 
Summary

There has been a general decline in college unions in the past few years. The author suggests some external and internal factors that have a significant bearing on the general state of unions: substantial reforms in teaching, changes in college counseling centers, transformations in residence halls, and development of student subcultures off-campus. The internal factors are: paternalism, encapsulation, and preoccupation with management. The author attempts to relate these factors to a discussion of human development philosophy and methodology in comparison with union goals. Finally he gives emphasis to the relationship of governance to the development of effective citizens in a democracy as a critical educational function of the union. (Author/PG)
