The direction of change which holds the greatest promise for deepening, enriching and developing the great humanistic and scientific legacies of university education is by liberalizing the curriculum and processes of teaching and learning in the light of the ideals of the liberal arts tradition. These legacies may stem from the contributions of socially privileged and elite groups of the past. Today our technology makes it possible for all men and women who are willing and able, to partake of them, to contribute to them, and to find meaning and enjoyment in them. The liberal arts tradition is strengthened by the principles of academic freedom and in turn draws support from them. For both keep open the pathways to new truths and new visions of excellence in man's unending quest better to understand himself, society and the environing world.
