The following articles are included: (1) "A History of Resilience," by Robert H. Woodroof; (2) "The Private Junior College in Higher Education's Future," by Nelson M. Hoffman, Jr.; (3) "A Professional Approach to Marketing the Private Junior College," by Peter T. Mitchell; (4) "Assessment, the Affordable Way," by John H.
