LOUISBURG COLLEGE, LOUISBURG, N. C., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1969
CoOege: Communi^ Of Scholars
DR. CECIL ROBBINS
Today college is many things to many people.
For some, college is primarily a battlefield for radical and
A small minority tries to make it the chief exponent of the
“so-called” new morality. This group wants freer sex, a freer flow
of beer and booze and a wider acceptance of psychedelic drugs.
Another small minority attempts to make college the central
headquarters for social reform. This group is caught up in a wide
variety of causes--the draft, the war in Vietnam, poverty, racial
injustice, abuses of capitalism and other evils in the social order.
Some spend more time crusading against the evils in society than
they do on all of their class work.
Still another small group seeks to make the college a center of
radiral educational change. It wants to completely overhaul the
curriculum, to get the college more directly involved in com
munity needs and to have a commanding voice in policy and
You have been hearing a great deal from these vociferous
minorities on some campuses in our nation.
But there is another group~and I believe this group constitutes
the overwhelming majority~who view the college in a much
broader perspective. They think of the college primarily as a
community of scholars.
Now they are not satisfied with the status quo either on the
campus or in society. Rules must be changed, brought up to date.
They, too, see clearly the glaring evils in society. They discern the
weaknesses, the irrelevance and the ont-of-dateness of much in
our educational system.
But they do not lash out with disruptive or violent acts. They
do not beat a retreat into some fantastic hippie world. They don’t
just sit back and curse the Establishment.
They seek the truth. They delve into all the facts. They
discipline the mind through study, through a deep commitment
They, too, seek reform, human betterment, social progress,
through reasoned orderly processes.
College does not belong to the angry, irresponsible, minority
who foment strife and division.
, College belongs to the community of schoIars~the thinking,
dedicated faculty and students engaged in the highest mission on
earth—to understand the past and to explore new realms of
discovery and truth that excite and challenge our best.
The conununity of scholars are the real reformers, the builders
of better colleges and a better society.
I invite every student at Louisburg College this academic year
to become an active member of this distinguished company~the
community of scholars.
