PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 



To Our New Students: 

On behalf of the faculty and administration, I'm 
pleased to welcome you to Mansfield State College, 
and to wish you well as you begin your study this 
academic year. 

It is important for you to recognize that you were 
selected for admission because of your potential for 
success; but it is certainly just as important for us who 
have been at the College to remember that you chose 
Mansfield. That combination of selection and desire 
serves as the bedrock for individual success. 

The Password, our official handbook of information 
is one method by which the College tries to smooth 
your transition into the College and the community. 
It is not, however, intended to be a substitute for the 
more personal and individual help which can come 
from the human resources of Mansfield. You are en- 
couraged to seek out this personal help; we stand ready 
to aid you to the best of our ability. 

Let me personally encourage you to become knowl- 
edgeable about the social, educational and spiritual 
resources of the College and the community of which 
it is a part, so that they can be utilized in full measure. 

Sincerely yours, 

*£. 

Lawrence Park 
President

THE COLLEGE 

In 1857, the Mansfield Classical Seminary opened with a registra- 
tion of 105 students. Four months later, the original building burned 
and the first South Hall was then completed in 1859. 

In 1862, the Seminary was converted by the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania into the Normal School for the Fifth District. 

Student teaching began in 1871. In 1926, the Normal School was 
authorized to confer the degree of Bachelor of Science in Elementary 
and Secondary Education. A year later, the name of the institution was 
changed to Mansfield State Teachers College. 

Since the authorization of the College to grant the B.S. in Educa- 
tion, Mansfield has expanded its curriculum to include such special 
fields as Music Education, Home Economics Education, Library Sci- 
ence, Public School Nursing, Art Education, and Special Education. 

Indicating a broadened concept of professional preparation, the 
Pennsylvania Legislature on January 8, I960 authorized the title Mans- 
field State College. To better fulfill the broadened concept for profes- 
sional preparation, Mansfield was given the right to offer a Liberal 
Arts Program in January 1963. Graduate programs in Music Education, 
Elementary Education, Mathematics, History, and English were also 
added. 

The present campus, consisting of 27 principal buildings attrac- 
tively set in 150 acres, will continue to expand. In the process of being 
completed is an addition to the Administration and Library Building, 
new Student Center and new Gymnasium, which are scheduled for 
completion before the end of 1970. An addition to the Science Center 
is also under construction and will be completed in 1971. Scheduled to 
be under construction soon will be a maintenance building, recreation 
areas, roads, and parking lots; renovation of the Arts Building; altera- 
tions and modernization of the Boiler plant. Future capital program 
includes a Besearch and Learning Center; Fine Arts Center; dormi- 
tories; second addition to the Science Center; alterations to Strauglm 
Auditorium; and other projects.

RESIDENCE LIFE 



Mansfield State College endorses Residence Hall living. The Pro- 
fessional Personnel Staff working with student and faculty groups is 
continually striving to create a program that will result in a living- 
learning atmosphere in the residence halls. 

Experience in residence hall living contrihutes to the students' 
over-all social and emotional growth. Deviations from all-student resi- 
dence policy may occur when clarified through the Office of Student 
Affairs, depending on age of student, marital status, individual require- 
ments or other extenuating circumstances. 

All students who reside in campus housing facilities are expected 
to continue in residence for the entire academic year unless they with- 
draw from college, move to another community, or move to begin 
student teaching or other contingencies. Specific residence hall regu- 
lations applicable to individual halls will be available to each student 
upon request. The enforcement of residence hall regulations has been 
established through the respective men's and women's resident hall 
councils. 

All resident students are expected to participate in the campus 
dining program. Exceptions to this policy must have the approval of 
the Vice-President for Student Affairs. 

Mansfield State College wishes to have residents representing all 
creeds, races, and ethnic groups living in college resident halls. There- 
fore, in compliance with the Pennsylvania Fair Education Practice Act, 
all resident assignments are made without regard to race, religion, color 
or national origin. Having accepted the Pennsylvania Fair Education 
Act, we feel that a cross section of cultures provides a cosmopolitan 
community. The College also complies with the Federal Civil Rights 
Act, Title IV.

MAIL SERVICE

provided in each respective dorm. The mail usually arrives on campus 
at approximately 11:00 a. m. The Day Students have mailboxes in the 
Central Post Office. The Central Post Office, located in North Hall on 
the second floor, is also a mailing service center where students may 
deposit letters, purchase stamps, and pick up packages. To speed the

tions and for obeying same. 

ALCOHOL 

It shall be unlawful for a person less than twenty-one years of age 
to attempt to purchase, consume, possess, or transport any alcohol or 
malt or brewed beverages within the Commonwealth. 

The use or possession of alcoholic beverages on college property 
is prohibited. 

The State Liquor Control Board operates under state laws. Under 
these laws, it is a misdemeanor to unlawfully transfer a registration 
card for the purpose of falsifying age or to falsify age to secure MALT 
OR ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES. Also, it is a misdemeanor for any 
person to sell, furnish, or give to any minor under twenty-one years of 
age any malt or alcoholic liquor. 

POLICY RELATIVE TO THE ILLEGAL POSSESSION 
OR USE OF DRUGS 

Mansfield State College recognizes the seriousness that the illegal 
and indiscriminate use of drugs possess for the welfare of individuals 

15 



and society. "Drugs" include such things as heroin, amphetamines, 
harhituates, hallucinogens, etc. To combat this, the College utilizes the 
classroom, residence halls, health center, and the counseling center to 
provide information on drugs and the potential effect on the behavior 
and the health of the individual. Emphasis is placed on the role of 
education and counseling in developing attitudes and behavior patterns 
concerning drugs. 

Under the Laws of Pennsylvania it is a felony to possess, sell, dis- 
pense, or give away any narcotic drugs without authorization. It is a 
misdemeanor to use such narcotics unless they have been authorized 
by a licensed physician. 

GAMBLING 

Gambling is forbidden by the Laws of Pennsylvania. 

SOLICITING 

Students are not permitted to sell or advertise any commodity in 
residence halls, off-campus homes, or on the college campus without 
the written approval of the Vice President for Student Affairs. Food 
and soft drinks may be delivered only to the main lobby in the resi- 
dence halls. No deliveries are permitted after midnight. Salesmen, ped- 
dlers, and solicitors are not permitted anywhere on the college campus 
or college approved off-campus housing unless permission has been 
obtained from the Vice President for Student Affairs.

Hospital care is provided at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hos- 
pital in Wellsboro and the Blossburg State Hospital in Blossburg. 

The services of the health center are extended to all students of 
Mansfield State College. These services include a preventative health 
program which consists of tuberculin testing administered to all seniors 
to meet graduation requirements and to all personnel working with 
the food services associated with the college. Influenza immunization 
clinics are held in the fall in October and November. Allergy vaccine 
is administered to students if it has been prescribed by their physician. 

Members of the health staff work to furnish a thorough but 
friendly and individual service to which a student may come for help 
of any sort. You are urged to consult the Health Service at any time 
for purposes of diagnosing suspected contagious diseases or other 
illnesses. Since medical records and consultation are entirely confiden- 
tial, there is no possibility of embarrassment to the student and conse- 
quently no reason for avoiding diagnosis. 

Students who are ill are encouraged to report to the Health 
Center to be evaluated and treated by the nurses and the college phy- 
sician, and where condition indicates, admission to the infirmary is 
advocated. Medications and treatments are dispensed to the students 
free or at a very minimal charge depending on the type of medication 
prescribed. 

19 



Infirmary services are available twenty-four hours a day during 
the time the college is in session. 

EXCUSES 

If a student is ill anywhere other than the Infirmary and wishes 
an excuse from class due to that illness, it is the responsibility of the 
student to notify the infirmary at the time of his illness.

and to insure the proper amount of rest for the patients. 



STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE PLAN 

Mansfield State College offers its full-time students, through the 
Prudential Insurance Company of America, a comprehensive hospital, 
surgical, and medical insurance program which provides twelve-month 
protection against the cost of injury or illness. This policy covers the 
student not only while at school, but during school holidays, summer 
vacations and other times when the student is away from college. 

Full-time students will be covered under the plan effective Sep- 
tember 1 through the next August 31, provided they register, and pay 
the $27.00 insurance fee appearing in the student bill, by registration 
date. 

Students who do not register until the start of the second semester 
will be covered when the second semester begins through August 
31st at an insurance fee of $16.00. 

Coverage includes such areas as: hospital bills, surgical benefits, 
diagnostic X-ray and laboratory examinations, office visits to physi- 
cians, and numerous other coverage. For complete information ask 
for a brochure from the office of any personnel dean. 

COUNSELING AND TESTING SERVICES 

The Counseling Center assists students in making decisions re- 
lated to the immediate problems of college adjustment and to broader 
problems of effective living. Students are invited to make an appoint- 
ment for help in strengthening academic performance, developing 
career plans, solving situational problems, or improving personal 
relationships. 

With a professional counselor, the student may explore freely 
and in confidence any problems or feelings which are important to 
him. He can receive help which enables him to assess his individual 
make-up, to acquire increased self-understanding and sensitivity to 
others, and to grow in the direction of his choice. 

The college testing and counseling center is open Monday 

21 



through Friday from 8:30 to 4:30 p. m. The services of the center 
are available free of charge to all students enrolled at the college. 
Students are encouraged to avail themselves of these services whatever 
the nature or seriousness of the problem. 

Appointments may be made by calling Extension 208 or by coming 
to Room 106 of South Hall. A student may designate which counselor 
he wishes to see; if there is no preference, he will be assigned the 
earliest available time. The student will not be asked to give any 
details concerning his reason for requesting an interview. 



THE COUNSELING INTERVIEW 

The interview takes place in a private office and may last as long 
as one hour. Sometimes interviews are merely for the purpose of gain- 
ing information, in which case only one meeting is necessary. Often, 
however, the student and the counselor agree that further sessions may 
be helpful. Counseling usually begins with the counselor encouraging 
the student to talk freely about his concerns. The Counselor listens, 
tries to understand, attempts to clarify, and helps the student become 
objective about himself and make decisions with which he will be 
satisfied. Counseling is not simply a matter of receiving advice; it is 
a process of thinking through a situation with the professional help 
of another person. 

Again, no information disclosed in a counseling interview is given 
to anyone without the permission of the student. 



TESTING 

Counseling may be supplemented by means of tests which provide 
the student with more information about his interests, academic abili- 
ties, personal characteristics, study skills, and special aptitudes. 



EDUCATIONAL ADJUSTMENT 

The abrupt change from high school to the demand of college 
classwork is sometimes difficult to make. Counseling can help some 
students improve study methods and motivation, participate more ef- 
fectively in class discussion, increase confidence and skill in taking 
tests, and assure themselves the necessary environment and physical 
health for efficient performance. 

22 



PERSONAL COUNSELING 

Sometimes students find that personal concerns interfere with 
their academic work or in other ways make college life unsatisfying. 
Indications of this may include homesickness, difficulty in sleeping, 
inability to concentrate on lectures or tests, depressed feelings, lack of 
clear purpose, discomfort in social situations, or conflicts with others. 
Counseling has helped individuals with problems such as those involv- 
ing military service, marriage, religion, finances, living conditions, rela- 
tionships with family or friends, or just a need for self-understanding 
and sense of direction. These are the typical problems of college life 
and early adulthood. The student should recognize that it is very 
normal for him to be concerned about them and to seek help in work- 
ing them out. 

The Vice-President for Student Affairs is available upon appoint- 
ment to consult with students on any problem relating to student 
welfare. 



CONFIDENTIALITY OF STUDENT RECORDS 

Mansfield State College recognizes that higher education's cen- 
tral role is to provide learning experiences that will afford opportuni- 
ties for intellectual and personal growth of the student as well as 
opportunities for research, and acknowledges that the student's educa- 
tion and development is better served when confidential information 
about him is not made available to persons other than those who have a 
legitimate responsibility for his personal welfare, and recognizes that 
the maintenance of student records is sound educational practice pro- 
vided that the purposes of such record keeping are to assist in the 
development of the student or to provide research opportunities. 

1. As the custodian of student records, Mansfield State College as- 
sumes an implicit and justifiable trust. This trust involves a recog- 
nition that student records, both academic and personal, are con- 
fidential to the student and the institution. Accordingly, the 
College should exercise extreme care and concern in recording 
and disseminating information about students; and student rec- 
ords should be released by the Vice President for Student 
Affairs only to appropriate college authorities within the insti- 
tution, except where the student or graduate has given his 
formal consent or where the safety of the student and/or prop- 
erty is endangered. In instances where demands for informa- 
tion as to a student's personal record, his beliefs, or associa- 

23 



tions challenge the principle of confidentiality, the College be- 
lieves that the educational institution is obligated to prepare 
every legal basis for resistance. 

2. The College recognizes and supports the need for educational 
institutions to make available information about students for 
research purposes. In releasing original data for research the 
College will take due care to protect the identity of the student. 
Whenever the limits of confidentiality are in question the Col- 
lege should obtain the formal consent of the student prior to 
using information about him for research purposes. Before 
submitting information from student records to the researcher 
the College should be assured that the research agency will fol- 
low acceptable standards of confidentiality. 

3. It is further urged that if the College maintains membership 
lists for research or intra-institutional purposes, it should adopt 
the concept of confidentiality, based on the principles of free- 
dom of association and the rights of privacy, as stated in the 
NASPA resolution and resist to the fullest any demand for 
such information. If the College is not willing to exercise legal, 
as well as ethical, resistance to outside disclosures or to the 
subpoena process, then it is strongly recommended that no rec- 
ords indicating political beliefs or actions be maintained. The 
following guides are meant to assure the confidentiality of 
student records: 

I. The Student Placement Bureau is operated to fulfill the fol- 
lowing purposes: 

A. Assemble and keep a permanent record of the student's 
probable and actual employment potential and such other 
information as the student may wish to supply. This record 
will be distributed to prospective employers upon their request 
or by the direction of the student. 

B. Assist students in securing positions of employment. 

C. Assist employers in securing qualified people to fill existing 
vacancies. 

D. Assist College authorities in the gathering of information 
from graduates and employers relative to the strengths and the 
weaknesses of the College as part of the follow-up program. 

II. The Student's Placement Folder will contain: 
A. A personal data sheet. 

24 






B. Three or more faculty recommendations. 

C. An outside reference, one not affiliated with the College. 

D. Recommendations for student teaching or other work ex- 
perience gained as a part of the candidate's academic program. 

E. An unofficial transcript of the student's academic record. 

1. Disciplinary records are for intramural use and as such should 
not be made available to persons outside the institution except 
on formal request of the student involved. Disciplinary records 
should not be forwarded on transcripts unless the disciplinary 
action relates to the student's eligibility for re-enrollment into 
the College. 1 Intra-institutional use should be restricted to the 
professional student personnel administrator, who may inter- 
pret the meaning of notations to other officials in the institution 
when necessary to the discharge of their official duties. 

2. Information from student records should not be sent to pros- 
pective employers in the private or the public sector or other 
educational institutions without the formal consent of the stu- 
dent involved. Written reports for prospective employers and 
educational institutions should be made only by a professional 
staff member, and information of a derogatory nature should be 
handled with extreme care. (See Student Placement Bureau, 
Item 1, above.) 

3. The College has the responsibility to be responsive to bona fide 
governmental inquiries when national security or the safety 
of individuals is at issue. However, when requests of this na- 
ture are received and the student's consent cannot be obtained, 
the College should release only the information necessary to 
fulfill its legal obligation. 

4. Information relative to the academic achievement of students 
should be released to College intramural committees which 
are considering students for honors, awards, or scholarships. 

5. Certain information which appears in student directories and 
similar publications is usually available to the general public. 
Accordingly, such information may be released without formal 
consent of the student concerned. 



i "Transcripts of academic records should contain only information about academic 
status" is to be interpreted to permit the recording of any institutional action 
which affects a student's eligibility to reregister at the College (e. g., suspension 
or expulsion for academic or disciplinary reasons). 

25 



6. The College should make a periodic evaluation of information 
placed in student personnel records and only information re- 
lated to a specific purpose of the College should be collected 
and maintained. A time limit of 5 years is specified for the 
maintenance of records beyond a student's graduation or after 
a non-graduate withdraws from the College. In the interest of 
research, provisions may be made for the organization and 
classification of information in records that are to be destroyed. 

7. Where a request for confidential information concerning a 
student has been made and the student has formally consented 
to the release of that information, the college is obligated to 
respond to the inquiring agency. It is assumed that the College 
will respond accurately to such requests, and in a manner 
which is in keeping with the statements of this document. 

PLACEMENT SERVICES 

The Placement and Career Planning Division is maintained to 
advise students on career development and specifically to help students 
and alumni plan further academic work or secure professional posi- 
tions. Assistance is provided so that the individual may correctly evalu- 
ate himself, assess employment opportunities, and select a vocational 
area that can lead to personal growth and satisfaction. 

CAREER ADVISING 

Counseling is provided to help graduating seniors and alumni to 
(1) analyze their aptitudes, interests, educational preparation, short 
and long-range goals; (2) obtain information concerning appropriate 
areas of occupation; (3) investigate specific job opportunities; (4) pre- 
pare themselves to conduct job campaigns and to present themselves 
effectively as candidates; (5) evaluate job offers; and (6) choose the 
opportunity that will best satisfy their particular criteria. Throughout 
this process, the director of placement establishes and maintains con- 
tact with potential employers in the areas of education, government, 
business and industry; represents the College and its students in rela- 
tions with employing organizations; and maintains contact with region- 
al and national placement organizations. 

PLACEMENT SERVICES 

In addition to career planning, available assistance includes: 

1. The development and permanent maintenance of cumulative 

26 



professional credentials for each registrant, which are sent to 
prospective employers at the student's request. 

2. Information on certification and examination requirements. 

3. Posting notices of position vacancies. 

4. Scheduling of on-campus interviews with professional re- 
cruiters from many other states. 

An occupational library is maintained by the Placement Division. 
Students may examine information pertaining to careers in business, 
industrial, or educational settings during regularly scheduled hours. 

For those students anticipating study toward an advanced degree, 
general information regarding programs and admission requirements 
of graduate schools is available. Also, information pertaining to as- 
sistantships, fellowships, and scholarships will be posted periodically 
in the occupational library, Room 209, South Hall. 

LIBRARY REGULATIONS 

Materials circulating for two weeks include: books, pamphlets, 
pictures, and units. Non-circulating materials include: college catalogs, 
microforms, periodicals, reference books, and reserve books. Some 
reserve books may be charged out a half hour before the library closes 
but must be returned during the first half hour of service when the 
library is next open. 

OVERDUES 

The fine for overdue reserve books is 25c per hour. 

All overdue two-week books, pamphlets, pictures, and units carry 
fines of 10c per day. 

All students failing to return library materials or pay fines by the 
end of the exam period each semester are delayed in registration the 
following semester until they have cleared their library obligations. 
Graduating seniors and students who have withdrawn can not receive 
transcripts until they have cleared their library obligations.

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID 

As a state college, Mansfield offers higher education at a cost con- 
siderably below that of private and parochial colleges. For the same 
reason, financial assistance — both as to the number of grants made and 
the amounts awarded — is quite limited as compared with many col- 
leges which are heavily endowed. While remaining committed to 
offering financial aid to able students who can show evidence of finan- 
cial need, Mansfield State College must necessarily recognize that the 
financial costs of acquiring a higher education remain, at this time, 
the obligation of the student and his family. 

Matriculation at Mansfield State College is for a semester; the 
College, therefore, expects each entering student to be able to meet 
the expenses of the semester without the expectation of financial as- 
sistance unless such aid has been previously arranged and confirmed. 

The following points are emphasized: 

( 1 ) A new student (prospective Freshman or transfer) should not 
file application for aid before his admission has been con- 
firmed by the Director of Admissions and the Advance Regis- 
tration Deposit has been paid to the College and acknowl- 
edged. Inquiries should then be made to the Office of Student 
Financial Aid, Mansfield State College. 

(2) Any student requesting financial aid must have filed the 
parents confidential statement related to his personal and 
family finances with the College Scholarship Service, Prince- 
ton, New Jersey. That agency will then advise the college 
of its objective analysis as to the student's (or student's fam- 
ily) ability to finance his own education at Mansfield State 
College. The Student Aid Office utilizes this information 
when considering applications for all forms of student aid. 
Responsibility for filing the confidential statement rests with 
the student; help may be secured from high school principals 
and guidance counselors. The C. S. S. information sheet is 
NOT an application for aid. 

28 



OFF-CAMPUS EMPLOYMENT 

The College wishes to impress prospective students that the loca- 
tion of Mansfield State College in a rural, non-industrialized region of 
the state greatly reduces the opportunities for outside part-time em- 
ployment. Further, with increased emphasis being placed on scholastic 
attainment at this College, the number of hours in which a student 
may engage in employment has tended to drop sharply in recent years. 
The acquisition of off-campus employment is the responsibility of the 
individual student although the Financial Aid Office may be able to 
provide some limited job vacancy information. There has, however, 
been made available to qualified applicants, a small amount of part- 
time off-campus State and Federal Works Study Program employment. 
Additional information may be obtained in the Office of the Director 
of Student Financial Aid. 



PART-TIME CAMPUS EMPLOYMENT 

Part-time student employment at the College is available in the 
dining hall, library, dormitories, grounds and buildings, college union 
facilities, and offices. Such employment is normally awarded to stu- 
dents who have demonstrated ability to do satisfactory academic work 
and shown evidence of financial need. These positions are normally 
filled by upperclassmen, but a limited number of positions are open to 
freshmen. Requests for student employment are made after formal 
acceptance and payment of the Advance Registration Deposit. Appli- 
cations are available from and submitted to the Office of Student 
Financial Aid. 

Part-time State and Federal Works Study Program employment 
is available at the college. For details see the Director of Student 
Financial Aid. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

The following scholarships are awarded by various sponsors in 
cooperation with Mansfield State College. Applications are available 
from the office of Student Financial Aid, South Hall. 

H. W. COLEGROVE SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS. Annual awards 
of $100 each to two deserving young women residents of Tioga County, 
Pennsylvania, are made for the purpose of aiding the recipients on 
defraying college expenses. These scholarships are not customarily 
available to new students. 



29 



THEODORE PRESSER FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIP 
GRANT. The College receives annually a grant of $400 for financing 
grants to outstanding junior or senior students majoring in Music Edu- 
cation. Grants are awarded by the Music Department with the ap- 
proval of the President of the College. Applications for these grants 
should be made to the Chairman of the Music Education Department. 
Grants are made for undergraduate work for the forthcoming academic 
year. 

PENNSYLVANIA STATE SCHOLARSHIP. In 1965, the Penn- 
sylvania State Legislature appropriated monies to be granted in the 
form of scholarships. Although the primary purpose of the program 
was to assist capable high school seniors to gain financial aid for col- 
lege, some aid was made available to those presently enrolled in col- 
lege. Awards are made on the basis of financial need and academic 
performance. 

More detailed information can be obtained from the Office of 
Student Financial Aid. 

FEDERAL GRANTS. Beginning the 1st semester 1966-67, grants 
of up to $750.00 will be available as a result of the Higher Education 
Act of 1965. These awards known as Federal Educational Opportunity 
Grants, will be distributed to students who are in good academic stand- 
ing and have demonstrated financial need. 

More detailed information can be obtained from the Office of 
Student Financial Aid. 

HANNAH KENT SCHOFF MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP. The 

Pennsylvania Congress of Parents and Teachers each year in April 
awards two four-year scholarships of $150 per year to a worthy Penn- 
sylvania student. The student is selected by the Student Aid Commit- 
tee on the basis of scholarship, personality, and financial need. Appli- 
cations may be secured from, and returned to, the Office of Student 
Financial Aid. Applications must be received before March 1. 

LOANS 

NATIONAL DEFENSE STUDENT LOAN PROGRAM. The Na- 
tional Defense Act of 1958, as amended, makes available to full-time 
students showing evidence of financial need and maintaining good 
academic standing, loans for college expenses. 

Evidence of need will normally be on a yearly basis as evaluated 
by the College Scholarship Service. Currently the College makes a 

30 



maximum grant of $400 per semester although the maximum provided 
by federal legislation is $1,000 per year and $5,000 during the borrow- 
er's enrollment. A portion of the College's N. D. E. A. Loan Fund is 
reserved for entering Freshmen. These awards are made on the basis 
of financial need and academic promise as indicated by the SAT scores 
of the College Board Exams. 

Applications for N. D. E. A. loans may be received from, and 
returned to, the Office of Student Financial Aid. Application should 
not be made before notice of acceptance has been received and the 
Advance Registration Deposit paid to the College. 



STATE HIGHER EDUCATION LOANS 

Most states have state agencies which guarantee a college stu- 
dent's loan with a banking institute. All Pennsylvania residents are 
eligible, including freshmen, to apply for a state higher education loan. 
Pennsylvania grants $1,000 per academic year (as determined by 
semester hours completed). Loan applications are available from 
cooperating banks in the student's home area or directly from the 
Pennsylvania Higher Education Agency, Education Building, Harris- 
burg, Pennsylvania (17126). New York residents are eligible upon 
acceptance by this college and thereafter by maintaining a 2.0 cumu- 
lative average. 

Grants of $750, $1,000, $1,250 and $1,500 are awarded for the 
Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior years respectively. Qualifi- 
cation is governed by class standing as determined by semester hours 
completed, not by semesters of attendance. Applications are available 
from cooperating banks in the student's home or directly from New 
York Higher Education Assistance Cooperation, 111 Washington 
Avenue, Albany, New York (12224). The New Jersey plan is similar 
to the New York and Pennsylvania plans: applications may be secured 
from the lending institution or directly from the New Jersey Higher 
Education Assistance Authority, 225 West State Street, Trenton 25, 
New Jersey. 

The following procedure has been established for processing 
higher education loans at Mansfield State College: 

All copies of the application should be submitted to the Office 
of Student Financial Aid, South Hall, Mansfield State College. 

The Office of Student Financial Aid will certify your loan appli- 
cation, attach all necessary supporting documents, and mail your loan 
request to the proper agency. Notification as to award or denial will 
be received directly from the respective state agency. 

31 



Application for a state higher education loan should be made as 
soon as the student has accumulated sufficient credits to qualify for 
the higher class standing. Students are NOT to wait until the opening 
of the new school year. 

BOOKSTORE 

The Campus Bookstore is operated by College Student Services. 
Any profit accrues to College Student Services for the furtherance of 
student life. The store is open from 8:30 a. m. to 4:30 p. m., Monday 
through Friday. During registration week the store will be open special 
hours as posted to aid students in purchasing textbooks, toilet supplies, 
clothes, etc. 

THE MAIN BULLETIN BOARD 

The main bulletin board is located in front of the entrance to the 
library. It contains a list of events for each day as well as important 
announcements. 

All announcements which are to be placed on the main bulletin 
board should be sent to the Office of the Vice President for Student 
Affairs where they will be picked up by the Student Manager of the 
bulletin board or placed in the hands of the student manager prior 
to 4 p. m. before the day of posting. 

Due to lack of space, oversize (over 12" x 12") posters may en- 
counter difficulty in being placed in this area. 

Bulletin boards are also maintained for student use in the College 
Union and in Manser Hall.

STUDENT ACTIVITIES 



ACTIVITIES FEE 

An activity fee of $30 per semester, payable at time of registration, 
is required of all regularly enrolled students. This money is distributed 
by the budget committee to support the many student activities on 
campus. 

In order for an activity or organization to qualify for this type of 
support it must be open to all students, or offer free educational, athletic 
or entertaining activities to all students. 

MEMORIAL HALL — THE COLLEGE UNION 

September 1970 is the "target" date for the opening of The College 
Union. The building contains recreation areas, lounge areas, conference 
and project rooms and office facilities. 

It is anticipated that the "Union" will become the focal point of the 
campus activities program. A temporary "Union Board" has been or- 
ganized. It consists of students and faculty who are interested in the 
development of an improved "all campus" activities program. As the 
Union becomes better established, a permanent Board will provide the 
leadership for the development of the College Union. 

THE HUT 

The Hut is, in effect, an extension of the College Union and serves 
as a snack bar and casual gathering place for all members of the college 
community. It serves breakfast, complete lunches, and short order items 
at all times. 

35 



ART ACQUISITION PROGRAM 

An Art Acquisition Program has been in existence at Mansfield 
for the past ten years, the purpose being for the acquiring of significant 
original works of Art and the development of a worthwhile Art Collec- 
tion for the College. Funds are allocated yearly by the Student Govern- 
ment Association and is under the direction of a Student-Faculty Com- 
mittee. The collection now includes about ninety works; oil paintings, 
watercolors, intaglios, etchings, woodcuts, lithographs, sculpture and 
ceramics. Most of the paintings are displayed in the student and faculty 
dining rooms of Manser Hall. 

ART EXHIBITION SERIES 

With the completion of the Library-Administration Building in 
September, 1960, a monthly art exhibition series was inaugurated on 
the Mansfield campus for the cultural and esthetic development of the 
student body as well as for the community. Drawings, prints, water- 
color, and oil paintings and sculptural works have been exhibited. At 
least four exhibits per year are secured from the New York City Gal- 
leries such as Babcock, Associated American Artists, Grand Central 
Moderns, ACA and Bodley. Exhibits have also been on loan from the 
Butler Institute of Art, Youngstown, Ohio and the Living Arts Founda- 
tion, New York City. The program is under the supervision of the Art 
Department and funds for its operation are allocated by the Student 
Government Association. In conjunction with the Fine Arts Festival, 
a guest artist visits the campus, giving lectures to both assembly groups 
and informal groups. The artist's work is also on display at that time 
as part of the exhibition series. Artists participating in this program 
have been Sol Wilson, Richard Florsheim, Ralph Delia Volpe, Margit 
Beck, Everett Sturgeon, John Fell, and Klaus Ihlenfeld. Works by 
Lamar Dodd, Stanley Hayter, Sabina Teichman, and Anne Brigadier 
have also been exhibited at Mansfield. 

ASSEMBLIES 

Assemblies for the college community are scheduled on Tuesdays 
and Thursdays at 1:00 p. m. in Straughn Auditorium. Their primary 
purpose is to supplement the work of the classroom and to vary student 
activities. 

February 16, 1971 — Mackinlay Kantor 

March 2, 1971— Ralph Nader 

Others to be announced. 

36 



CONCERTS 



Various music groups such as the College Community Orchestra, 
Concert Wind Ensemble, Phi Mu Alpha, Sigma Alpha Iota and others 
present Sunday evening concerts in Straughn Auditorium. These con- 
certs which are open to the students, faculty, and public, enhance the 
cultural entertainment held on the campus. 



FEATURE SERIES 

The Mansfield Feature Series brings to the campus some of the 
world's greatest artists in the performing arts. Recently the college has 
presented such names as Marilyn Home, Evelyn Lear, Theodor Upman, 
The Guarneri String Quartet, The Pennsylvania Ballet, Don Shirley and 
others of comparable stature. Admission to these programs is covered 
by the student activities fee.

STUDENT GOVERNANCE AND 
COLLEGE JUDICIAL SYSTEM 

STUDENT GOVERNANCE AND COLLEGE JUDICIAL SYSTEM 

Greater student participation in direction of their own affairs has 
been one of the most important developments recently at Mansfield 
State College. Greater student participation means that each student 
assumes more responsibility for his proper action, conduct and thinking 
which accompanies the privilege of directing their own affairs. The 
broad basis for the student government program at Mansfield State 
College is based on the Student Government Association. All Mansfield 
students are automatically members of the Student Government Asso- 
ciation. Monthly meetings are held for airing problems and for voting 
on major issues. During the monthly meetings, hearings and reports 
received by action of the Student Council are reported to the Student 
Government Association. 

Through the Student Government Association a Student Council 
is elected to represent the Student Government Association at all col- 
lege affairs. This organization meets on a bimonthly arrangement and 
conducts the normal business for the Student Government Association. 
It has a representation of a president, vice-president, treasurer, secre- 
tary, adviser and five delegates at large.

MANSFIELD STATE COLLEGE 
JUDICIAL SYSTEM 

Preface 

These are times of student challenge in colleges and universities 
across the nation. More and more of today's students are pressing for 
greater freedom to direct their own lives on and off campus, to shape 
college and university policy and to engage themselves in the critical 
affairs of society. These desires are pursued with vigor and a variety 
of tactics, promising Mansfield State College much spirited disagree- 
ment and conflict in the foreseeable future. Whether one supports or 
opposes these student goals, it seems clear that the sensible resolution 
of disagreement rests heavily on the ground rules governing college 
and student interaction being as full, clear, persuasive and equitable 
as possible. 

The following is suggested as a rationale for the basis of a position 
on responsible student freedom and maturity in an educational or 
academic community. 

The College's educational purposes make necessary, not merely 
permissible, its concern with the quality of student conduct and. extra- 
curricular life. Even a narrow view of education must concede that a 
student's activities outside the classroom directly affect his academic 
capacities and learning, and that the intellectual tone of a campus is 
set by the character of extracurricular life. If one views education more 
broadly, then it must involve the goal of developing the whole person 
and not just his intellect and training skills. The College thus pursues 
two broad aims for its students: sound intellectual and academic train- 
ing and the development of mature, ethical and responsible persons 
sensitive to the humanity of others. 

The College can best implement its proper concern for the devel- 
opment of the whole person by adherence to the principle of responsi- 
ble student freedom: each student should have a high degree of per- 
sonal freedom, coupled with an acceptance of full responsibility for 
his individual actions and their consequences. It is the Committee's 
conviction that self-development proceeds from the ability to make 
real choices, and that maturity grows from the intelligent use of free- 
dom. This means, for example, that rules of conduct, sanctions and the 
exercise of police power should be kept to a minimum. It also means 
the shared assumption that each member of the College community 
will respect the right and integrity of others. 

42 



STUDENT CONDUCT — Judicial Structure 

The Judiciary System 

The following system of hearing boards is instituted to deal with 
the stated proscriptions which adversely affect the College's educa- 
tional interests. 

1. Men's-Women's Hearing Board ( MWHB ) 

The Men's-Women's Hearing Board will be composed as follows: 
2 male dormitory members, 2 male off-campus members, 1 male day 
member; 4 female dormitory members, 2 female day members as 
voting members. There shall be a non-voting faculty member acting 
exclusively as adviser to the MWHB. The student members shall be 
elected by their peers; 1 the faculty member shall be appointed by 
the President of the Faculty Assembly to serve a three-year term. 

2. Academic Integrity Board 

The Academic Integrity Board will be composed of the following 
voting members: the Assistant Dean of Academic Affairs, 2 faculty 
members appointed for one-year terms by the President of the 
Faculty Assembly, 2 student members appointed by the Student 
Council for a one-year term. A student member may be re-appointed. 

3. College-Wide Appeals Board 

The College- Wide Appeals Board will be composed of the following 
voting members: The Vice-President for Student Affairs, the Vice 
President for Academic Affairs, the President of the Student Council, 
2 faculty members appointed to serve one-year terms by the Presi- 
dent of the Faculty Assembly. 

STUDENT CONDUCT — Rationale for Discipline 

The educational goals of the College include a concern for non- 
academic student conduct. This, we believe, can best be implemented 
by promoting responsible student freedom and maturity and by not 
confusing the College's disciplinary authority with civil law enforce- 
ment. Thus, College discipline should be limited to instances of student 
misconduct which adversely affect the College community's pursuit of 
its educational purposes; namely, ( 1 ) the opportunity of all members 

1 All student members of the MWHB shall be selected by means of an election 
held by the Student Council. To be eligible a student shall have completed LB 
credit hours of academic work at Mansfield State College. Petitions may he- 
secured from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs. 

43 



of the College community to attain their educational goals, (2) the 
generation and maintenance of an intellectual and educational atmo- 
sphere throughout the College community, ( 3 ) the protection of health, 
safety, welfare and property of all members of the College community 
and of the College itself. Further, we believe that the College should 
make its sanctioning powers over students serve its educational goals 
for students, rather than promoting general police functions well 
represented in general law. 

Specific proscriptions or student conduct which adversely affects 
distinct College interests or educational purposes are the following: 

(1) Dishonesty, such as cheating, plagiarism, or knowingly furnish 
false information to the College. 

(2) Forgery, alteration, or use of College documents, records, or in- 
struments of identification with intent to defraud. 

(3) Intentional obstruction or disruption of teaching, research, ad- 
ministration, disciplinary proceedings or other College activities, 
including public functions and other authorized activities on 
College premises. 

(4) Physical abuse of any person on College premises or at College- 
sponsored or College-supervised functions or conduct which 
threatens or endangers the health or safety of any such person. 

(5) Theft from or damage to College premises or theft of or damage 
to property of a member of the College community on College 
premises. 

(6) Failure to comply with directions of College officials acting in 
performance of their prescribed duty. 

( 7 ) Violation of published College Regulations, including regulations 
relating to entry and use of College facilities, and any other 
regulations which may from time to time be enacted. 

(8) Repeated violation of published rules governing College resi- 
dence halls. 

( 9 ) Violation of civil law on College premises or in College residence 
halls in a way that adversely affects the College community's 
pursuit of its proper educational purposes, as enumerated above. 

(10) Violation of published rules of the Traffic Code. 

STUDENT CONDUCT — Sanctions Defined 

A preliminary observation should be made. Even where violation 
of a College rule is established, sanctions need not in every case be 

44 



imposed. Matters of extenuation should always be taken into account, 
along with all circumstances, in determining sanctions. No sanctions 
should be imposed more serious than are clearly appropriate in the 
circumstances. 

Men's and Women's and College-Wide Appeals Boards: 
Sanctions: 

(1) Admonition. An oral statement to the student offender that he 
has violated College rules. 

( 2 ) Censure. Written reprimand for violation of specified regulation, 
including the possibility of more severe disciplinary sanction in 
the event of conviction for the violation of any College regulation 
within a period of time stated in the letter of reprimand. 

( 3 ) Disciplinary Probation. Exclusion from participation in privileges 
or extracurricular College activities as set forth in the notice of 
disciplinary probation for a specified period of time. 

(4) Restitution. Reimbursement for damage to or misappropriation 
of property. Reimbursement may take the form of appropriate 
service to repair or otherwise compensate for damages. 

(5) Suspension. Exclusion from classes and other privileges or activi- 
ties as set forth in the notice of suspension for a definite period of 
time. The student may re-enroll in the College at the termination 
of his period of suspension without readmission. 

(6) Dismissal. Termination of student status for an indefinite period. 
The conditions of readmission, if any is permitted, shall be stated 
in the order of dismissal. 

Academic Integrity Board: 

Sanctions for dishonesty in academic work may range from Ad- 
monition to Dismissal from the College. 

STUDENT CONDUCT — Judicial Proceedings 

The goal of judicial proceedings should be to develop procedural 
minima assuring fairness, rather than a formal replication of what 
obtains in civil society. When a student is brought before a hearing 
committee, the following requirements of procedural due process shall 
be observed. 

( 1 ) No member of a hearing committee who is otherwise interested 
in the particular case shall sit in judgment during the proceeding. 

45 



(2) The student shall be informed in writing of the reasons for the 
proposed disciplinary action with particularity, and in sufficient 
time, to insure opportunity to prepare for the hearing. 

(3) The student appearing before a College hearing board shall have 
the right to be assisted in his defense by an adviser of his choice. 

(4) The burden of proof shall rest upon the officials bringing the 
charge. 

(5) The student shall be given the opportunity to testify and to pre- 
sent evidence and witnesses. He shall have an opportunity to hear 
and question adverse witnesses. In no case shall the committee 
consider statements against him unless he has been advised of 
their content and of the names of those who made them, and 
unless he has been given an opportunity to rebut unfavorable 
inferences which might otherwise be drawn. 

(6) All matters upon which the decision may be based must be in- 
troduced into evidence at the proceeding before the hearing com- 
mittee. The decision shall be based solely upon such matters. 
Improperly acquired evidence shall not be admitted. The hearing 
board involved shall decide whether evidence has been properly 
acquired. 

( 7 ) A full report, or transcript, or tape recording of the hearing shall 
be filed with the Vice-President for Student Affairs as confidential 
material and shall be periodically disposed of. 

( 8 ) The decision of the hearing committee shall be final, subject only 
to the student's right of appeal to the College- Wide Appeals 
Board, or the President of the College. 

STUDENT CONDUCT — Initiation of Judicial Proceedings 

Any academic or administrative official of the College, any member 
of the faculty, or any student of the College may file charge against any 
student of the college for violation of all-College proscriptions. (See 
outlined Proscriptions.) The charges shall be filed with the Office of 
the Vice President for Student Affairs who shall recommend that the 
charges be disposed of informally or disciplinary proceedings be ini- 
tiated. If all parties involved are not satisfied with informal resolution, 
the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs shall send to the 
student charged a copy of the charge together with notice of applicable 
procedures that the student should be aware of. A copy of the charges 
shall be sent to the Chairman of the appropriate hearing board. The 

46 



Chairman of the hearing board will set the time for the proceedings. In 
setting the time for the hearing the Chairman should consider whether 
the charged student has had sufficient time to prepare for the hearing. 

Pending action on the charges, the status of the student or his right 
to be present on the campus and to attend classes shall not be altered. 
Exceptionally, for reasons relating only to the demonstrated danger to 
the safety and well-being of the charged student, or for reasons relat- 
ing only to the demonstrated danger to the safety and well-being of 
students, faculty, or College property, the charged student may be 
advised by the Vice President for Student Affairs, pending considera- 
tion of the case, that his removal from Campus would be in his own 
best interest and/or the best interests of the College community. Such 
advice shall be made before witnesses and the charged student's par- 
ents shall be informed of the advice given. 

When a student is charged with misconduct regarding cheating as 
outlined in the stated proscriptions, the faculty member involved shall 
have the option of disposing of the charge informally or of initiating 
Academic Integrity Board proceedings. The procedure for the latter 
shall be as follows: the charges shall be filed with the Vice President 
for Student Affairs and the Vice President for Academic Affairs by 
the faculty member concerned after consulting with his department 
chairman. Both the faculty member and the department chairman shall 
appear at the hearing and may make recommendations, but they shall 
have no vote. 

STUDENT CONDUCT— Appeals 

A student found guilty of misconduct by either the MWHB, or 
the AIB may file an appeal from the decision of the hearing board 
within twenty-four hours to the Chairman of the College-wide Appeals 
Board. 

The appeal shall be limited to a review of the full report of the 
hearing board for the purpose of determining whether the board acted 
fairly in light of the charges and evidence presented at the hearing. 
The College-wide Appeals Board may accept the report without modi- 
fication, may accept the report subject to a specified reduction in the 
sanction imposed, or dismiss one or more of the charges entirely. 

The right to appeal to the President of the College is stated under 
the heading "Judicial Proceedings." 

Further, a student may petition the original hearing board for a 
new hearing upon discovery of new evidence. 

47

48 



Article II 

Section 200 Commencement of an Action 

All action, excluding appeals, shall be heard by the hearing

I. In any hearing before the hearing boards, where the charge is 
a violation of college rules, the party complained of shall have all the 
protections guaranteed in the Bill of Rights of the Constitution of the 
United States. 

II. The burden of Proof in any hearing or proceeding before the 
hearing boards, lies with those instituting the complaint. In any case

tional fact or aid the court in any proper manner. The hearing boards 
may take such notice of any decisions of its courts, the hearing boards,

boards to accept some facts without proof. For example, it is generally 
known that stop signs are red in color and octagonal. ) 

V. The hearing boards may rule on objections and motions at the 
time they are made. However, they may reserve decision on an objec- 
tion or motion, require it be reduced to writing, and order the pro- 

49 



ceeding to continue. (Example: At the outset of a hearing, the defense 
may move to adjourn the hearing, claiming lack of evidence, etc. The 
hearing board would ask to reserve judgment on the motion until they 
had additional information. ) 

VI. In all cases the party complained of shall have the right to be 
confronted by his accusers. In traffic violation cases, the party com- 
plained of shall only have this right, when the testimony of the 
Security Office is necessary, in the opinion of the court, to the decision 
of the case.

its evidence. The party complained of shall then have an 
opportunity to question the evidence presented and to present 
his evidence. 

V. After hearing all the evidence, the court shall make a finding 
of guilt or innocence solely upon the evidence presented. 

VI. A member of the hearing boards must at any time withdraw 
from any procedure if he deems himself disqualified for personal bias 
or otherwise. After showing just cause, either party to the dispute

VII. The hearing board shall have the power to request for testi- 
mony such persons or papers essential to the finding of a fair and just 
decision. 

50 



VIII. The chairman of the hearing board shall be responsible for

involved in the case under consideration, shall be attired in a proper 
manner, while in the hearing room. 

X. Any person who commits an action in the presence of the hear- 
ing board, which interrupts the proceedings of the board, and any 
person who refuses to comply with a reasonable order of the board, 
can, at the request of the chairman, be removed from the hearing room. 

XI. Meetings of the hearing boards shall be open. However,

I. After the presentation of all the evidence, the members of the 
hearing boards shall request the withdrawal of all parties, at which 
time the hearing boards shall make its decision. 

II. In all cases before the hearing boards, a vote of the majority

plaint charged. The hearing boards must convene and act with a 
quorum of two-thirds of its members present. 

III. After a decision is reached, it shall be read to the party com- 
plained of. In cases of student conduct in violation of the rules of the 
college, the parties shall be informed of their right of appeal to the 
next higher hearing board. A written copy of the decision shall be 
sent to all parties. 

IV. Any member of the hearing board who wishes to submit a 
signed dissent in writing to any decision of the court, may do so. Such 
dissent shall accompany the decision and shall likewise be sent to all 
parties. 

Section 303 Sentence

object within the time required, he will be understood to have waived 
his objection. 

II. Except as provided in paragraph I of this section, the hearing

vant, immaterial or unduly repetitious evidence. (Probative effect 
refers to facts that tend to prove. )

any matter in any record. 

VI. All records shall be retained for a reasonable period of time, 
not to exceed four years.

campus or facility or other property of the institution and 
direct him to leave such premises. In the event of his failure 
or refusal to do so, such officer shall cause his ejection from

as prescribed in the penal law of the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania.

priate hearings, to dismissal or such lesser disciplinary action 
including suspension, probation, loss of privileges, fine, resti- 
tution, reprimand or warning as the facts of the case may

Sec. 7. Enforcement Program. The President shall be responsible 
for the enforcement of these rules and other administrative officers 
shall be herein authorized to take action in accordance with these rules 
when required or appropriate to carry them into effect. 

It is not intended by any provision herein to curtail the right of 
students, faculty or staff to be heard upon any manner affecting them 
in their relations with the institution. In the case of any prima facie 
violations of these rules by such persons, which in the judgment of the 
President, or the appropriate administrative officer, and the violation 
does not pose any immediate threat of injury to person or property, 
such officer shall make reasonable effort to learn the cause of the con- 
duct in question and to persuade those engaged therein to cease and 
desist and to resort to reasonable and lawful methods for the resolution 
of any issues which may be presented. In doing so, such officer shall 
warn such persons of the consequences of persistence in the prohibited 

60 



conduct, with consequences and they include ejection from any prem- 
ises of the institution where their continued presence and conduct is 
in violation of these rules. 

In any case where violation of these rules does not cease after 
such warning and in other cases of wilful violation of these rules, the 
President or the appropriate administrative officer shall cause the ejec- 
tion of the violator from any premises which he occupies in violation 
of these rules and shall initiate disciplinary action as hereinbefore 
provided. 

The President or the appropriate administrative officer may apply 
to the public authorities for any aid which he deems necessary in caus- 
ing the ejection of any violator of these rules and he may request the 
legal counsel of Mansfield State College to apply to any court of appro- 
priate jurisdiction for an injunction to restrain the violation or threat- 
ened violation of these rules. 

Sec. 8. Appropriate Administration Officers: Designees of the Presi- 
dent. Individuals who shall be deemed to constitute appropriate admin- 
istrative officers and who are deemed to be designees of the President

other than those persons named above to invoke the provisions of 
this act. 

Sec. 9. This act shall be known as "The Rules and Regulations to 
Maintain Public Order, Mansfield State College" and may be cited as 
"Public Order Act, M. S. C." 



Title II 
Sec. 1. Principles. 

(a) Mansfield State College, as a community of scholars, affirms, 
supports, and cherishes the concepts of freedom of thought, 
speech and lawful assembly. Freedom to experiment, to 
present and to examine alternative data and theories; the 
freedom to hear, to express and to debate various views; and 
the freedom to voice criticism of existing practices and values 

61 



are fundamental rights which must be upheld and practiced 
by the College in a free society. 

( b ) Recognizing that the education processes can include demon- 
stration and other forms of collected expression, the College 
affirms the right of individuals and groups to assemble and to 
demonstrate on campus within the limits of the public order 
act. The College also affirms the right of others to pursue 
their normal activities within the College and to be pro- 
tected from physical injury or property damage. 

( c ) The College should be vigilant to insure the continuing open- 
ness and effectiveness of channels of communication among 
members of the College on questions of common interest. To 
further this purpose, a Committee on Open Expression is 
hereby established as a standing committee by the Office of 
the President. The Committee on Open Expression has as 
its major tasks, monitoring the communication processes rec- 
ommending policies and procedures for improvement of all 
channels of communication, advising administrative officers 
where appropriate, participating in evaluation and resolution 
of conflicts that may arise from incidents or disturbances on 
campus. 

Sec. 2. Committee on Open Expression. 

(a) The Committee on Open Expression consists of twelve mem- 
bers: five students, four faculty members, one non-instruc- 
tional staff member and two representatives of the adminis- 
tration. Administrative officers as defined in Sec. 8 of Title I, 
may not be members of the Committee on Open Expression. 

( b ) Members of the Committee are appointed by the President in 
the following manner: 

a) student members shall be nominated from undergraduate 
and graduate students by a means arrived at by legally rec- 
ognized representative student groups. If the students are 
unable to agree upon such a procedure, and instead propose 
several different procedures, the President shall make an 
interim choice between the student proposals. Students se- 
lected by an interim process shall serve only until their peers 
have established a permanent selection process. 

b) faculty members shall be nominated by the Faculty Ad- 
visory Council; the administration members shall be nomi- 

62 



nated by the President; the non-instructional staff member 
shall be nominated by the Non-Instructional Council. 

c) each member shall be selected for one year. Any indi- 
vidual may not serve for more than two consecutive terms. 

d) the chairman of the Committee shall be selected by and 
from the members of the Committee on Open Expression. 

Sec. 3. Jurisdiction. The Committee shall have competence to con- 
sider all issues and controversies involving open expression under the 
public order act. The Committee functions include, but are not limited 
to, the following: 

(a) Reviewing administrative decisions regarding invocation of 
the public order act taken with prior Committee consultation. 

(b) Recommending to the Board of Trustees and other legally 
recognized bodies any proposals to amend or repeal the 
public order act. The affirmative vote of seven members is 
required to make such recommendation. 

( c ) Advising administrative officials with responsibilities affecting 
freedom of expression and communication, including par- 
ticularly the use of College facilities for meetings and the 
utilization of force to terminate a demonstration. 

(d) Mediating where possible in situations that threaten to give 
rise to incidents that may possibly violate the public order 
act. 

(e) Evaluating and characterizing incidents that have occurred 
both to determine whether the conduct considered as a 
whole, of any group, has violated the public order act, and 
to attempt to discover or remedy any intentional and inad- 
vertent failures in communications that may have caused or 
contributed to the incident. The Committee will not act as a 
disciplinary body to try charges against individual persons 
and impose punishment, however, its interpretation of the 
public order act may be probative in any disciplinary pro- 
ceedings that may ensue. 

(f) Adopting procedures and rules for the functioning of the 
Committee, varied to suit the several functions, consistent 
with the public order act. 

63 






Sec. 4. Procedures. 

1. Seven members of a Committee constitute a quorum. No mem- 
ber may participate in the consideration or decision of an issue 
in which he is or may become involved. 

2. The Committee can authorize subcommittees, selected from its 
own members, to act for the Committee in any matter except 
the issuance of opinions interpreting the public order act, or 
the making of a recommendation to amend or repeal the public 
order act.

Section V 



ACADEMIC POLICIES 

SCHOLASTIC STANDARDS AND REQUIREMENTS 
Academic Counsel 

Students are urged to make the fullest use possible of the academic 
counselling available to them through their respective advisors, depart- 
mental chairmen, instructors and deans. Faculty are expected to post 
and keep regular office hours for this purpose. 

The student should make a choice of major only after considerable 
thought and deliberation. Current information regarding the various 
fields of study offered at M. S. C. may be obtained from the Assistant 
to the Vice President for Academic Affairs or divisional deans. 

Class Standing 

Class standing is determined by the total number of semester 
hours earned including acceptable credits transferred from other 
accredited colleges. 

Lower Division ( General Education ) 

Freshman 0-31 semester hours of earned credit 

Sophomore 32-63 semester hours of earned credit 

Upper Division ( Liberal Arts or Teacher Education ) 

Junior 64-95 semester hours of earned credit 

Senior 96 semester hours or more of earned credit 

The student with 60 semester hours of earned credit while techni- 
cally housed in the Upper Division is expected to make a formal appU 
cation for acceptance into his division. Details regarding upper-divi 

67 



sional acceptance may be obtained from the Dean of Liberal Arts or 
the Dean of Professional Studies. 

Semester 

A semester's work is defined as a minimum of 12 semester hours 
of work attempted. To be considered a full-time student a minimum of 
12 semester hours of work must be carried. 12 to 18 semester hours 
constitutes a normal student class schedule. A student desiring to 
carry more than 18 semester hours must obtain permission from his 
department chairman and meet the following: 

Credits Quality Point Average 

19 2.60 or above 

20 3.00 or above 

Marking and Point System 

Mansfield State College employs the 4-point system in evaluating 
academic performance: 

Grade Interpretation Quality Points 

A Excellent 4 

B Above Average 3 

C Good College Work 2 

D Passing 1 

F Failure 

I Incomplete 

Instructors may correlate percentage scores with letter grades. 
For such correlations the following list of equivalents is presented: 

90— 100=A 
80— 89=B 
70— 79=C 
60— 69=D 
0— 59=F 

The quality point average (Q. P. A.) is determined by dividing 
the total number of quality points earned by the total number of 
semester hours of work attempted. It should be noted that semester 
hours and credit hours are one and the same. The Q. P. A. is the 
index by which a student's academic standing is judged. 

68 






An "F" grade in a required course must be cleared by repeating 
the course. It is not to the student's advantage, however, to repeat a 
I >" grade. 

An "I" (incomplete) grade is used to denote unfinished work be- 
i uise of a death in the family, illness, accident or other serious miti- 
gating circumstance. The student is responsible for the removal of an 
I" grade within a period of three weeks following the semester in 
which the "I" grade was given except in cases where further mitigating 
situations prevail. It is expected that "I" grades given at the end of a 
spring semester be made up during the first three weeks of summer 
school. 

Reasons for granting "I" grades must be cleared through the Office 
of Academic Affairs. If the "I" grade is not cleared for reasons of mi- 
tigating circumstances, the Registrar shall record a final grade of "F". 

In addition to letter grades, the following designations (none of 
which is figured in the Q. P. A.) are used in situations warranting 
them: 

S — Satisfactory 
U — Unsatisfactory 
EX — Credit by examination 

WP — Withdrawal passing from the course after the drop-add 
period with the approval of the instructor and the Office of 
Academic Affairs. 
WF — Withdrawal failing from the course after the drop-add 
period with the approval of the instructor and the Office 
of Academic Affairs. 
AUD— Audited. 

Withdrawal From or Addition of a Course 

Withdrawal from a course after the designated drop-add period is 
permitted only for justifiable reasons, and with the approval of the 
Assistant to the Vice President for Academic Affairs, instructor of the 
course and the student's departmental chairman. When such approval 
is given the student receives either a WP or WF depending on his 
status at the time of his withdrawal. No notation of a course dropped 
will appear on the student's permanent record if he withdraws during 
the designated drop-add period. 

A student will receive an "F" in any course from which he with- 
draws without approval. 

To drop or add a course during the drop-add period the studenl 

69 



secures the appropriate form from the Data Processing Center, re- 
ceives the signature of the instructor for the course involved and re- 
turns the form to the Data Processing Center. 

Change of Major or Division 

Requests to change major or division must be initiated in the 
Office of Academic Affairs. Such requests must be initiated during 
the specified period well in advance of the next term in order that 
the application may be acted upon before the new term begins. Spe- 
cific forms will be provided. 

Petition 

Whenever any rule or regulations of the College causes an unfair 
hardship, the student is entitled to petition for an exception by filling 
out a petition form obtainable from his appropriate divisional head. 
Advisors will be glad to assist in the preparation of a petition. Com- 
pleted forms should have the necessary signatures prior to submission 
to the Office for Academic Affairs. 

Continuance in College 

To remain in satisfactory standing a student must maintain a 
cumulative point average of 2.0 or better. A student whose quality 
point average ( Q. P. A. ) falls below 2.0 will automatically be placed 
on academic probation. Except for the grade report issued at the close 
of each semester reflecting the student's Q. P. A. the student will not 
receive special notification that he has been placed on academic- 
probation. 

The So-Called "Old Policy" for Academic Continuance 

Students who entered M. S. C. prior to September 1969 are per- 
mitted continued matriculation governed by credits earned and the 
corresponding minimum Q. P. A. as required by the following outline: 

0-18 credits earned 1.40 or better to continue 

19-31 credits earned 1.70 or better to continue 

32-47 credits earned 1.80 or better to continue 

48-63 credits earned 1.90 or better to continue 

64 — beyond 2.00 or better to continue 

Any student whose quality point average remains below the re- 
quired Q. P. A. as outlined above will be dismissed from the College. 

70 



A one-year interval must elapse before a student may re-apply to the 
College for re-admission. Any student twice dismissed for academic 
reasons automatically terminates his association with Mansfield State 
College. 

The So-Called "New Policy" for Academic Continuance 

Students entering Mansfield State College in September 1969 or 
thereafter are subject to the scholastic requirements as follows: 

A freshman student (0-31 earned semester hours), who does not 
attain a 2.0 quality point average (Q. P. A.) at the close of his first 
semester (12-18 semester hours attempted) will automatically be 
placed on academic probation. If at the end of his second semester the 
student has not removed himself from academic probation he will be 
placed on academic probation for a third semester. At the end of his 
third semester if his Q. P. A. is not a 2.0 or better, the student will 
be dismissed from the college. 

Students transferring to Mansfield State College with freshman 
status (0-31 semester hours) will be accorded the same consideration 
as the regular Mansfield State College freshman. A transfer student 
with 32 semester hours of transferable work who does not achieve a 
2.0 Q. P. A. at the end of his first semester will automatically be on 
probation for one semester. If at the end of his second semester the 
student has failed to achieve a 2.0 Q. P. A. he will be dismissed from 
the College. 

Any student with a Q. P. A. of a .99 or below at the close of a 
semester will be dismissed from the College. 

If a student, after completing two or more semesters of academic 
work, attains less than a 2.0 Q. P. A. he will be placed on academic 
probation for one semester. If at the end of this semester on academic 
probation his Q. P. A. is still below a 2.0, he will be dismissed from 
the College. 

One calendar year must elapse before a student who has been 
dismissed for academic deficiency may reapply for re-admission to 
the College. Any student twice dismissed for academic reasons auto- 
matically terminates his association with Mansfield State College. 

Academic Standard's Review Board 

Recommended Procedures for the Academic Standards Review 
Board As Set Forth by the Academic Standard's Committee of the 
Faculty. 

Students who have not achieved the minimum required grade 

71 




point average to permit them continued matriculation are subject to 
dismissal from the College. The academic standard to be followed in 
the case of each student will be that academic standard's policy which 
was in effect at the time of the student's initial matriculation or re- 
admission. 

Following dismissal notification a student, upon his own initiative, 
has recourse to the Academic Standard's Review Board if in his opinion 
there would be sufficient reason upon which to appeal his dismissal. 
Should the student desire a review of his case, he should state this to 
the administrative officer informing him of his dismissal. 

I. Composition of the Review Board: 

A. The Vice President for Academic Affairs or his designee 
shall serve as Chairman of the Board. 

B. Three members of the Academic Standard's Committee 
as elected by that committee shall serve as voting members 
of the Board for a term of one year. Those individuals for 
June 1, 1970 through June 1, 1971 are: 

Teacher Education Delegate: Dr. Verne Jeffers 

( Alternate ) : Prof. Janet McMullen 

Arts & Sciences Delegate: Dr. Charles Weed 

Prof. Richard Mason 

Delegate-at-Large: Prof. William Wetherbee 

( Alternate ) : Dr. Emery Breniman 

C. The Chairman of the student's department shall have one 
vote. 

D. One faculty member of the student's choice shall have a 
vote. 

II. Procedures: 

A. The Assistant to the Vice President for Academic Affairs 
shall establish the dates of the Review Board and notify the 
student of the designated time and place. The Chairman of 
the Board will not have a vote unless there is a split decision. 

B. After having been notified of the time for the hearing the 
student is expected to address to the Chairman of the Review 
Board a written appeal stating his case. This written appeal 
may be mailed to the Chairman or brought in person by the 
student to the hearing. In no case, however, will the Board 

72 



be obligated to decide an appeal if the student has failed to 
provide the Board with a written statement of his appeal. 

C. After receiving information with regard to the appointed 
time and place for his hearing, the student is expected to 
request his departmental chairman and the faculty member 
of his choice to appear before the Board at the appropriate 
time. 

D. Before the student discusses his case with the Board, the 
student's written review will be read by the Board. The five 
voting members of the A. S. B. B. will consider all necessary 
records of the student. Next the student will be given the op- 
portunity to speak to the A. S. R. B. (if he so desires). 

E. Following the presentation of his appeal the five Board 
members for the case will vote by secret ballot (example: 
John Doe — granted or denied) and the student will be noti- 
fied immediately of the Board's decision. 

F. Failure to appear on the part of the student may constitute 
waiver of the appeal and may result in a finalization of the 
dismissal. Should the student's chairman or the faculty mem- 
ber of his choice fail to appear, the remaining voting members 
will have the determining votes. A majority vote of the mem- 
bers will determine the decision on any specific case. 

G. The recommendation of the A. S. R. B. to the President 
will be considered final unless the student petitioner has new 
information to present in a direct appeal to the President. 

Withdrawal from the College 

Students wishing to withdraw from the College must initiate the 
process in the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs. After 
proper completion of all withdrawal papers the student is cleared for 
formal withdrawal. 

Withdrawal without proper notification and approval may preju- 
dice the student's record and his chance for readmission. The college 
reserves the right to record "F" grades for courses not completed dur- 
ing the semester in which the student has improperly withdrawn. 

Absence Policy 

Student evaluation expressed as grades will be determined on tin- 
basis of academic performance. Professors will outline their criteria 
for academic evaluation prior to the end of the first week of class. 

73 



Bona fide absences because of illness, serious mitigating circum- 
stances, or absences because of official College representation approved 
by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs shall be accepted 
by all faculty. 

Requests for absence from the College must be initiated in the 
Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and official notification 
for excused absences will be issued to the faculty by this office. 

Faculty members are expected to take reasonable precautions 
to reduce to a minimum opportunities for dishonesty in academic work. 
Faculty should instruct the students as to the meaning of plagiarism 
so as to aid in solving the plagiarism problem. Where possible, the 
faculty member is expected to assess offenses of academic dishonesty in 
the interests of acceptable high standards. This is a matter primarily 
between the student and instructor. Requests for special assistance may 
be made to the Office of Academic Affairs.

V. MOTOR VEHICLE REGULATIONS 
General 



Parking vehicles on campus is a privilege granted by the College 
to all individuals who can observe restraint and display maturity in 
the operation of their vehicle and the use of parking facilities. 

Motor vehicle control is administered by the Mansfield State Col- 
lege Traffic Policy Committee. The Committee is authorized to estab- 
lish and enforce through the Traffic Court such rules and regulations 
as are deemed necessary and proper for the operation of motor vehi- 
cles and for the safety of pedestrians, property, and other vehicle 
operators. 

Mansfield State College Traffic Regulations are supplemental to 

I the Vehicle Code of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. 
All College employees, faculty and students who operate any 
type of motor vehicle are presumed to have read the following rules 
and regulations following registration of their vehicle. Failure to read 
and be familiar with the regulations shall not be accepted as an 
excuse for violations. 
Questions or problems relating to the operation of motor vehicles 
should be directed to either the Chief Security Officer or the Chairman 
of the Traffic Policy Committee. 
These regulations, or any part thereof, may be revised at any time 
but shall be reviewed each spring semester.

property, and/or used by students, College employees, or fac- 
ulty at any time while in class attendance or during employ- 
ment, must be registered with the Chief Security Officer. Com-

lege will not be required to have a permit. Permits may be ob- 
tained from the Security Officer during semester registration

105

mit for the year or any part thereof is charged. Registration of a vehicle

officers and faculty.

vision or two years of college attendance.

student. 

2. The decal is to be placed on the left rear bumper of the vehicle.

5. The permit of a motor vehicle which is sold, transferred, junked 
or otherwise disposed of must be returned to the security offi-

allow another student who has less than 2 years attendance in 
college, i. e., a junior, to operate his vehicle. ($25.)
