An Analysis of the Use of the Words Incompetency and Immorality in Southern Baptist Colleges and Universities.
Silver, Jane H.
The study was an attempt to determine whether the words incompetency and immorality or very similar ones were used for the purpose of reprimand or dismissal in Southern Baptist colleges and universities in the United States. A secondary purpose was to discover whether the words were defined in any official publication. Data were secured from 43 institutions. Thirty used either or both words in some faculty publication; three felt they accomplished the same result by statements of purpose or philosophy. The word incompetency was used more frequently than the word immorality. None of the reporting institutions had printed definitions of both words, although a few had attempted to define one or the other. (MSE)
