Annual meetings of learned groups provide individuals with an opportunity to examine their purposes and ideas and to find challenge, support and renewal among their colleagues. In the October Association for General and Liberal Studies annual meeting we are examining two concepts and their interrelationships-lifelong education and general and liberal studies. The conference itself is an experiment in lifelong, continuing, recurrent education. While neither movement is new, each is in a position for strong revival. The conscientious professor who must face nine to twelve classes each week has long recognized the need for recurrent renewal; now the need is being recognized as existent for everyone.
