Tone, Pascal F.; And Others
Franklin College and Institute for European Studies is a small two-year liberal arts college in Switzerland dedicated to "the education of a new kind of international citizen for the last quarter of the 20th century." Accordingly, it is designed to spark interest in and concern for the contemporary scene in Europe so that American college age students, living and working with an international faculty, can make personal judgments on the political, social, economic, and cultural issues which affect them. Leading towards an Associate in Arts degree, courses are designed to meet transfer and admission requirements of U.S. colleges and universities. This self-evaluation report proposes to present an accurate account of the college, its philosophy, educational programs, and aspirations for the future. It provides descriptions of the academic program (curriculum, curriculum development, academic travel program, and co-curricular activities), students and student life (admissions, counseling, services, athletics and extra-curricular activities, and the student association), faculty and teaching, physical plant and facilities, college organization and administration, finances, and the continuing system of college and program evaluation.
