The Ferris Educational Mission Obligations and Directions.
Griffin, Edward M.
In September 1971, the members of the Educational Planning Committee of Ferris State College held a seminar to determine Ferris priorities for the 1971-72 academic year. This document takes into consideration the first of these priorities--the educational responsibilities and missions of Ferris State College. To this end, the document is divided into 6 major sections. The first contains the Ferris role statement and discusses some implications for the future of the college. The second section deals with the disadvantaged student at Ferris and his academic needs, and the third discusses the advanced student and a possible 3-year degree program. The fourth section describes educational programs for those with leisure time, the fifth describes programs for career change, and the final section describes the Common Learning Model which is a common core of learning basic to all Ferris disciplines. Other documents planned by the Educational Planning Committee will pertain to the role of student-faculty morale in the Ferris educational program and ways of enhancing or strengthening program planning.
