Abstract/ Summary

A scanned version of a report presented by an Ad hoc Academic Planning Committee on Student Life. The introduction notes, "Early in 1979, Francis Brown, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, proposed a major study of student life to 'examine the role of and review the services provided to students a the University of Maine.' During the Spring, while Trustees considered the scope of such a study, Chancellor Patrick McCarthy asked the staff to research the past five years of national studies, monographs, texts and periodicals affecting student affairs. McCarthy stated that the quality of academic life on each campus is directly tied to such vital concerns as degree program balance, support services, tuition and fees, transferability and campus environment."
