Clayton, Laura B.
This is a report of a survey of 48 Lutheran colleges and universities, 11 Lutheran seminaries, 20 Piedmont University Colleges, and 17 other colleges and universities. The Piedmont University College System is made up of several small institutions in North and South Carolina. The bulk of the report contains tabulated responses of each institution to 4 main items of a questionnaire: 1) Arrangement, advantages and disadvantages of Saturday classes, if they are held (approximately 70% of the institutions did not hold Saturday classes); 2) Academic term arrangement (approximately 60% of the institutions were on the semester, 15% on the quarter, and 20% on the 4-1-4 system); 3) Availability of and various policies concerning summer employment for faculty (approximately 80% of the institutions had employment available if desired); and 4) Sabbatical leave program (approximately 65% of the institutions reported programs). There is no discussion of the responses. In addition to the survey data, there is a listing of 142 institutions on the 4-1-4 calendar system, 48 considering its adoption, and 3 that were formerly on the system but discontinued it. (DS)
