We recognise the great importance for society at large, and for those directly involved, of the justified demands of students for more direct participation in working democracy within the University, of the growing responsibility towards society on the part of the University community as recently manifested in student protest, and of experiments with parallel educational systems organised by students themselves, particularly where these experiments have promised a rebirth of the vision of the University as a place of learning rather than a factory for the production of diplomas. We do, however, also wish to record our recognition of society’s need for well-educated professionals. We deem the above demands reasonable, and extend our sympathy and solidarity to the student movement striving for a more equitable society.
