Continuing a Renaissance. Student Senate's Vision for the Future of the University. Submitted to President Russell G. Warren by the 1990-1991 Student Senate.
Northeast Missouri State Univ., Kirksville.
Developed through participation in an institution-wide process of developing a new long-term plan for Northeast Missouri State University (NMSU), this document presents a vision of the future of NMSU as developed by the Student Senate. The contents were shaped through a synthesis of the Student Senate's general work, open forums, research into past University documents and interaction with members of the University community on a daily basis. The first section contains a discussion of the academic program and in particular the Liberal Arts and Sciences Curriculum with serious concerns expressed about the effectiveness of the current Core curriculum in achieving the goal of a liberal arts and sciences education. A discussion of the classroom experience covers learning beyond the classroom as well. A section on faculty addresses instructional requirements, benefits, and advising and registration. Facilities are assessed in the following section. A section on student services treats student government, student organizations, student union, career planning and placement, student health services, and athletics. Residential living and student body composition have their own sections. The next section discusses fostering a continued "renaissance" in the community a a whole. A penultimate section offers concluding remarks, and recommendations are summarized in a final section. A 12-item bibliography is included. (JB)
