80 · Northwest Arkcmsns TIMES, Sun., April I I , 1976 r.\yi:n-Kvii.u:. AHKASSAS Student Criticism Cools Down ST PETERSBURG, (AP) -- In the late '60s stu dents pounded nt the structure of business and government They heckled politicians speak ing at college forums and boocfl corporate recruiters off the campus. At worst, their dissent turned to riots and sometimes tragedy. Today, students arc yet to come fnH circle, hut hostility and criticism, while still point ed, have cooled. This was the assessment of business leaders \vho recently spoke at a four-week seminar here for 515 college students from across the country. Views expressed by students at the "Operation Enterprise" seminar sponsored by American Management Associations showed they: --Talk of growing distrust of society's institutions. --Temper idealism with the realities of business. --Are uncompromi sing in their view that there should be no corruption in business and government. --Fault business for waiting for government regulations to push it into action rather than initiating changes itself. --Feel business may be able to solve the nation's problems through continued technological advancement. --Have a growing anti-union sentiment because unions do not seem to be working in the " best interest of their members. R E T U R N E D "In some ways students have returned to where they were in 1953 when vre began the semi nars," says Robin Schade, di rector of .young adult activities ; for A1IA, a nonprofit, management educational organization. "I can't say they have become conservatives, but they h av e certainly moved in that direction For instance in the latest seminar only one of the 30 or so men had shoulder length hatr Five years ago (he ratio would have been reversed. One thing that has continued v as strongly as ever over the years leaders agree is the students' independent thinking. Though many of them are sent to Operation Enterprise under sponsorship of companies such as Dow Chemical, Nabisco, and ITT, they have no qualms about criticizing business. The purpose of the seminars is to give a clear, balanced picture of the real world of management, rather than sell students on the pleasant trappings usually associated with executive suite activities, according to A MA presi dent Jam ec I/. Hayes. "Let's face it, there's a dirty side to being a manager," says ; Hayes. "Textbooks tell you layoffs are a function of the business cycle. But it's quite differ. ent when you have to look em ployes in the eye and tell them you're shutting down operations - for a while." ' 3 WAY PICTURE 1 To get a three-dimensional picture of managerial responsi bilities, students hear represen- . latives from labor and govern- · ment as well as business. There are usually 20 to 30 speakers for each seminar, and class schedules are longer than the average college day. Few students attending the seminars leave with the same views they had on arrival, says - Schade, hut they are not product of "group think." For " example, when students were asked on the last day of the · seminar what they considered '. to be the main problem facing business today, the responses fell into three general categories: Government regulation hurting business. While not all regulations are bad, they have definitely gone loo far. The loss , of public confidence, due to cor- ·- ruption by relatively few, plaguing business, The known factor of future change is the greatest challenge, but it will be met. .
