ABSTRACT
The article informs that U.S. college and university officials are seeking effective yet humane methods for breaking the spiral of campus violence. With cooperation promised by 16 higher education associations, a blue-ribbon committee of college presidents, faculty members, students, trustees, and lay persons held its first meeting in September to examine the problem. The American Council on Education (ACE) committee and a similar body named by the American Bar Association will coordinate their efforts. ACE President Logan Wilson has expressed hope that committee efforts will ward off repressive legislation. One step already taken by many college administrations to ease unrest without harsh disciplinary or legislative action relates to student representation in campus government. Of the 120 institutions included in a recent American Association of State Colleges and Universities survey, at least half have students taking their places this fall on faculty and administrative councils previously closed to them.
