To commemorate their golden anniversary, the Class of '39 organized a series of four public meetings to discuss and analyze the problems currently facing the University of Minnesota. The speeches given at the first symposium, in November 1988, are presented here along with a preface by Arthur E. Naftalin, a member of the Class of '39. The papers are: John R. Borchert on The Changing Context of the University, Philip M. Raup on A Profile of the University of Minnesota--What It Is and What It Is Not, John E. Turner on Viewing the University of Minnesota from the Classroom, James R. Nobles on Managing a Mega-University: How the University Operates, Josie R.
