The development of leaders and colleges with the vision and ability to create an environment for both short- and long-term responses to societal concerns will be critical for the survival of these LGCAs. They will need help in escaping from old ideas, which means escaping from old organizations built on the past. A new sponsoring organization is needed to aid in this effort. With a new intellectual foundation, and the future firmly in mind, then and only then should a new national organization be instituted.
