Abstract:

The Oregon Extension can be understood, then, as both a manifestation of, and as a form of resistance toward, the particular cultural milieu in which is was founded. As a residential community, the long-term residents at Lincoln forged enduring friendships and working relationships that neither negated individual difference nor dissolved all commitment to communal life. Drawing on examples from both the hippie counterculture and religious communities, the families at Lincoln sought a way of life that balanced the needs of individual members and families with the viability of the vocational community, as most obviously embodied in the continuation of the Oregon Extension program. As an educational program, the Oregon Extension was developed by faculty who were looking for a way to escape from the limitations of both fundamentalist, evangelical theology and the expectations of institutional education. By drawing on the work of contemporary cultural critics, the theories of psychologists in the human potential movement, and the dissident educators who drew on both of these bodies of literature to suggest new ways of teaching and learning, the OE faculty established a safe haven for themselves and for the students who sought them out as mentors.
