One of the challenges that must be met by the college is the national trend, illustrated by increased attention to the external degree, toward increasing credit for non-traditional educational experiences.... The addition of a number of vocational/technical programs has caused serious crowding, which in turn has created special difficulties for the vocational and technical programs, as well as the programs in other divisions of the college.... a substantial increase in the number of faculty and students, but the diversity of academic programs has increased considerably. During the past year there were over 60 professional faculty and staff members and the number will increase as the vocational/technical faculty and staff personnel are added.... The turnover in maintenance, custodial, and security personnel has been reduced from the previous year but still presents an expensive problem.... As a part.of the recruitment program, the Office of Student Affairs began last year (1970-71) administering the Comparative Guidance and Placement Test (CGP) to all prospective students. The CGP is now an institutional requirement for admission and has been found to be very effective in helping to place students in developmental, beginning credit, or in advanced placement for credit courses.... The faculty completed the Institutional Self-Study for reaffirmation of accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools during the Spring Quarter, 1971.
