entCenter Opens
by Sharon Warner
Co-directors
of Eric's firstHuman Development Center, Mr.
Ray
Danielski and his wife,
Diane^along
with several! community volunteers, are anticipating the program's success,which begins tonight, April! 27through June
18,
Mr.
Ray
Danielski
The center which, Mr.Danielski said, "was
stemmedfrom
community interest" involves a series of workshops,
lectures
i
and seminars directedtoward
aiding £the
individual to
know
more about
himself.
The program is designed tocompliment
the
traditionallearning process oil
developing
cognative skills. It transends this
in
three areas:
1.
the center will attempt to explore what it means to thehuman.
2.
in addition, it will direct theindividual as to how todevelope, deal with hishumaness.
3.
most distinct from the formaleducational concept, thecenter will blend instructionwith experience. The courseswill be
"action-oriented"
andavoid tendencies of "objective
observation."
The
center
has
been financed byMercyhurstCollege, due to both
President!
Shane and DeanGarvey's enthusiasm for theproject.?:
~L
With
the fattitude
that"education is more than an accumulation of knowledge," apoint shared by all the educatorsof the center, the College felt thatthe program "should be tried and
would
be
potentially successful."Again departing fromtraditional concepts in education,teachers were selected for thecourse on
Jthe
basis of their"personal experience" with thegiven
subjects,frather
than anycredentials they|may have accumulated.For financial reasons, mostteachers and speakers are fromthe Erie area. However, Mr.Danielski was surprised as wellas pleased to :iind so manyqualified
people
available
to
him.From the
pre-registration
todate, Mr. Danielski has describedthe groups as a
-"good cross
section"
5 *
When asked if this spring's
program
would be the beginningof a series of similar endeavors,Mr. Danielski
indicated
that anyfuture expansion of the present
•center
would depend on
its
suc
