The findings of an on-going self-evaluation process conducted at Franklin College during 1975-1978 are presented in seven sections. Chapter I deals with the academic program in terms of the curriculum, academic travel, and co-curricular programs. Chapter II focuses on the students. It outlines trends in admission standards and selectivity, enrollment, grading, and degrees granted and considers counseling, extracurricular activities, student participation in governance, and housing problems. The third chapter profiles the faculty and discusses faculty turnover rates, responsibilities, and teaching loads. Chapter IV assesses library acquisitions, circulations statistics, inter-library loan services, and periodical holdings, and presents the results of a student survey of the helpfulness of the library. Chapter V details organizational and administrative changes during 1975-1978 and presents an organization and governance chart. Chapter VI discusses financial problems due to the devaluation of the dollar, efforts to increase income and improve fund-raising, and the difficulties involved in reporting finances to both Swiss and American authorities. Chapter VII discusses the alumni association, the results of an alumni survey, student transfer records, and attrition rates. (JP)
