Starnes, William M.
The annual report for 1977-78 to the Board of Trustees of Martin College, a church-affiliated junior college, contains individual reports of the college president, vice-president, academic dean, dean of admissions and records, financial aid office, admissions office, dean of student affairs, library director, business manager, college-church relations office, athletic director, and alumni office. During 1977-78, Martin College employed 22.3 full-time equivalent instructional personnel, including two full-time librarians and four administrators who also served as part-time instructors. The college offered approximately 60 university-parallel programs of study to 240 enrolled students (a decrease of 13.5% from the previous year), 221 of whom were full-time (131 first-time and 90 continuing), 15 part-time, and four special students. In addition, the college offered some one- and two-year terminal programs to prepare students for particular vocations. Curriculum changes for 1977-78 included reducing English offerings at the sophomore level from six to two, removing six mathematics courses believed to be upper division level, and adding an introductory math course to meet needs of incoming freshmen who lacked competency in college algebra. Information on student characteristics, finance, student government and services, library use, and athletic programs is included. (TR)
