Change in higher education and in the society at large demands that university planners "take aim at a moving target," Dr. Fred E. Crossland, program officer in higher education for The ford Foundation told his SCUP 7 audience (see Planning, October 1971). That target may be even more elusive than imagined, in the view of a young faculty member, who holds that planners, whether their concern is academic, fiscal, or physical, will have to re-examine their professional self-image if they are to rebuild the university to meet the requirements of today. The following article is excerpted from a SCUP 7 address, "University Planning: Some Interrelationships Between Self-Concept and Spatial Design," by David E. Whisnant,
assistant professor of English at the University of Illinois.
