Summary

This brief report summarizes a longer document with the same title. It reviews the reshaping of the college undergraduate curriculum in order to meet the new and compelling issues of the future such as accommodating diverse races and ethnic groups, incorporating global perspectives on the environment, and dealing more effectively with the human dimensions of education. It is suggested that a firmer grasp is needed on what the curriculum is as an idea, and what language and terminology can best describe it and give it operational definition. Further suggested is a careful review of the criticisms, and recommendations that confront the collegiate curriculum. There is also a need for a continuous self-analysis dealing with what the academic profession is and what its condition of practice should be. Finally, a need exists for a wider understanding of the organization and its content, going from a preparation stage to an action phase that recognizes the shape of change and the forces of culture within which it moves. Contains 10 selected references. (GLR)
