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 transi-
tion into the College and the community. It is not, however,
intended to be a substitute for the more personal and indi-
vidual help which can come from the human resources of
Mansfield. You are encouraged 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 knowledge-
able 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.
In 1857, the Mansfield Classical Seminary opened with a regis-
tration 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 Ele-
mentary 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 Edu-
cation, 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, 1960 authorized the title
Mansfield State College. To better fulfill the broadened concept for
professional 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 3 1 principal buildings attrac-
tively set in 150 acres, will continue to expand. In the process of
being completed is a maintenance building, recreation areas, roads,
and parking lots. Future campus development includes a Research
and Learning Center; Fine Arts Center; dormitories; alterations to
Straughn Auditorium; and other projects.

Mansfield State College endorses Residence Hall living. The
Professional 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 contributes to the students'
over-all social and emotional growth. Deviations from all-student
residence policy may occur when clarified through the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs, depending on age of student, marital status, individual
requirements 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
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.
Therefore, in compliance with the Pennsylvania Fair Education Prac-
tice 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 Fed-
eral Civil Rights Act, Title IV.
A two dollar campus damage fee is collected from all students
to cover bills reflecting malicious damages on campus. Money re-
maining at the end of each fiscal year is used for improvements in
various areas as approved by the Student Government Association.
A ten dollar deposit is collected from all residence hall students in
the form of a Residence Hall Damage Deposit. This fee is refund-
able, subject to possible damage claims.

ing to Room 106 of South Hall. A student may designate which
counselor he wishes to see; if there is no preference, he will be as-
signed 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 gaining 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 coun-
selor 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 re-
ceiving 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.
Counseling may be supplemented by means of tests which pro-
vide the student with more information about his interests, academic
abilities, personal characteristics, study skills, and special aptitudes.
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
effectively in class discussion, increase confidence and skill in taking
tests, and assure themselves the necessary environment and physical
health for efficient performance.
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 involving military service, marriage, religion, finances, living
conditions, relationships with family or friends, or just a need for
self-understanding and sense of direction. These are the typical prob-
lems of college life and early adulthood. The student should recog-
nize that it is very normal for him to be concerned about them and
to seek help in working them out.
The Vice-President for Student Affairs is available upon appoint-
ment to consult with students on any problem relating to student
CONFIDENTIALITY OF STUDENT RECORDS
Mansfield State College recognizes that higher education's cen-
tral role is to provide learning experiences that will afford oppor-
tunities for intellectual and personal growth of the student as well
as opportunities for research, and acknowledges that the student's
education and development is better served when confidential infor-
mation 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 provided that the purposes of such record keeping are to assist
m the development of the student or to provide research opportunities.
1. As the custodian of student records, Mansfield State College
assumes an implicit and justifiable trust. This trust involves
a recognition that student records, both academic and personal,
are confidential to the student and the institution. Accord-
ingly, the College should exercise extreme care and concern
in recording and disseminating information about students;
and student records should be released by the Vice President
for Student Affairs only to appropriate college authorities
within the institution, except where the student or graduate
has given his formal consent or where the safety of the stu-
dent and/or property is endangered. In instances where de-
mands for information as to a student's personal record, his
beliefs, or associations challenge the principle of confidenti-
ality, the College believes 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 College 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 follow 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^. a*-5taTed in the
NASPA resolution and resist to the fullest any demand for
such information, fif the CoUeg^ls not wiJMfe to exercise
legal, as well aS ethical, resistaiice to ou^i3e disclosures or
to the subpoena process, then it is strongly recommencka that
no recor^ indicating political beliefs or actionV^ be main-
tained^The following guides are meant to assure the confi-
dentiafity of student records:
I. The Student Placement Bureau is operated to fulfill the fol-
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 exist-
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.
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 rec-
ords should not be forwarded on transcripts unless the dis-
ciplinary action relates to the student's eligibility for re-enroll-
ment into the College.' Intra-institutional use should be
restricted to the professional student personnel administrator,
who may interpret the meaning of notations to other officials
in the institution when necessary to the discharge of their
' "Transcripts of academic records should contain only information about aca-
demic status" is to be interpreted to permit the recording of any institutional
action which affects a student's eligibiHty to reregister at the College (e.g., sus-
pension or expulsion for academic or disciplinary reasons).
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
student involved. Written reports for prospective employers
and educational institutions should be made only by a profes-
sional 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 nature 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.
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 agencj^ 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.
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
evaluate himself, assess employment opportunities, and select a vo-
cational area that can lead to personal growth and satisfaction.
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. Through-
out this process, the director of placement establishes and maintains
contact with potential employers in the areas of education, government,
business and industry; represents the College and its students in
relations with employing organizations; and maintains contact with
regional and national placement organizations.
In addition to career planning, available assistance includes:
1. The development and permanent maintenance of cumulative
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 recruit-
ers 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.
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.
The fine for overdue reserve books is 25^ per hour.
All overdue two-week books, pamphlets, pictures, and units carry
fines of lO^* 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.

Sunday 2 p.m. - 10 p.m.
For additional information on the Library and its resources, stu-
dents are encouraged to consult their Student Library Handbook.
STUDENT FINANCIAL AID
As a state college, Mansfield offers higher education at a cost
considerably 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 colleges which are heavily endowed. While remaining com-
mitted to offering financial aid to able students who can show evidence
of financial 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
assistance 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 Stu-
dent 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.
The College wishes to impress prospective students that the
location 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
Part-time State and Federal Works Study Program employment is
available at the college. For details see the Director of Student Fi-
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.
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
Education. Grants are awarded by the Music Department with the
approval 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 forth-
coming 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
college, some aid was made available to those presently enrolled in
college. Awards are made on the basis of financial need and
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 standing 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
Pennsylvania student. The student is selected by the Student Aid
Committee on the basis of scholarship, personality, and financial
need. Applications may be secured from, and returned to, the Office
of Student Financial Aid. Applications must be received before
NATIONAL DEFENSE STUDENT LOAN PROGRAM. The
National 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
maximum grant of $400 per semester although the maximum pro-
vided by federal legislation is $1,000 per year and $5,000 during
the borrower'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 indi-
cated 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-
Grants of $750, $1,000, $1,250 and $1,500 are awarded for the
Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior years respectively. Quali-
fication 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 Wash-
ington 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 ap-
plication, 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.
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.
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 spe-
cial hours as posted to aid students in purchasing textbooks, toilet
supplies, clothes, etc.

inistrators who are interested in the campus activities program.
board is responsible for planning and implementing programs
that revolve around Memorial Hall and the "old gym." Student
members of the board were appointed by the Student Government
ART ACQUISITION PROGRAM
An Art Acquisition Program has been in existence at Mansfield
fi)r the past ten years, the purpose being for the acquiring of significant
■riiMnal works of Art and the development of a worthwhile Art Col-
iiin for the College. Funds are allocated yearly by the Student
■rnment Association and is under the direction of a Student-Faculty
iiiittee. The collection now includes about ninety works; oil
jMUitings, 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,
watercolor, and oil paintings and sculptural works have been exhib-
ited. At least four exhibits per year are secured from the New York
City Galleries 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 Foundation, New York City. The program is under the super-
vision 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 partici-
pating 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 for the college community are scheduled on Tuesdays

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 think-
ing which accompanies the privilege of directing their own affairs.
riie 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 Gov-
ernment Association. Monthly meetings are held for airing problems
and for voting on major issues. During the monthly meetings, hear-
mgs and reports received by action of the Student Council are re-
ported 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 Asso-
ciation. It has a representation of a president, vice-president, treas-
urer, secretary, adviser and five delegates at large.

MANSFIELD STATE COLLEGE
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 aca-
demic training 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 de-
velopment of the whole person by adherence to the principle of
responsible student freedom: each student should have a high degree
of personal freedom, coupled with an acceptance of full responsibility
for his individual actions and their consequences. It is the Com-
mittee's conviction that self-development proceeds from the ability
to make real choices, and that maturity grows from the intelligent use
of freedom. 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.
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-
1. Men's- Women's Hearing Board (MWHB)
The Men's-Women's Hearing Board will be composed as follows:
4 male on campus members, 2 male off campus members, 4 female
on campus members, and 2 female off campus members as voting
members. There shall be a non-voting faculty member acting ex-
clusively as adviser to the MWHB. The student members shall be
elected by their peers;^ 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 Vice-President for Academic Affairs or his
designee, 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: five students appointed and ratified by Student
Senate and five faculty members appointed and ratified by Fac-
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 stu-
dent misconduct which adversely affect the College community's pur-
suit of its educational purposes; namely (1) the opportunity of all
members of the College community to attain their educational goals,
(2) the generation and maintenance of an intellectual and educational
atmosphere 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 furnishing
false information to the College.
(2) Forgery, alteration, or use of College documents, records, or in-
struments of identification with intent to defraud.
' 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 15
credit hours of academic work at Mansfield State College. Petitions may be
secured from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.
(3) Intentional obstruction or disruption of teaching, research, ad-
ministration, disciplinary proceedings or other College activities,
including public functions and other authorized activities on
(4) Physical abuse of any person on College premises or at Col-
lege-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
(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 reg-
ulations which may from time to time be enacted.
(8) Repeated violation of published rules governing College resi-
(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 viola-
tion of a College rule is established, sanctions need not in every case
be imposed. Matters of extenuation should always be taken into ac-
count, along with all circumstances, in determining sanctions. No
sanctions should be imposed more serious than are clearly appropri-
ate in the circumstances.
Men's and Women's and College-Wide Appeals Boards:
(1) Admonition. An oral statement to the student offender that he
has violated College rules.
(2) Censure. Written reprimand for violation of specified regula-
tion, including the possibility of more severe disciplinary sanction
in the event of conviction for the violation of any College regu-
lation within a period of time stated in the letter of reprimand.
(3) Disciplinary Probation. Exclusion from participation in privi-
leges 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 termina-
tion 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.

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
(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 com-
mittee 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 hear-
ing board involved shall decide whether evidence has been prop-
(7) A full report, or transcript, or tape recording of the hearing shall
be filed with the Vice-President for Student Affairs as confidential

STUDENT CONDUCT — Initiation of Judicial Proceedings
Any academic or administrative official of the College, any mem-
ber 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 Of-
fice of the Vice President for Student Affairs who shall recommend
that the charges be disposed of informally or disciplinary proceedings
be initiated. 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 Chairman of the hearing board will set the time
for the proceedings. In setting the time for the hearing the Chair-
man 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 relating only to the demonstrated danger to the safety and
well-being of students, faculty, or College property, the charged stu-
dent may be advised by the Vice President for Student Affairs, pend-
ing consideration of the case, that his removal from Campus would be
in his own best interest and/or the best interests of the College com-
munity. Such advice shall be made before witnesses and the charged
student's parents 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 recommenda-
tions, but they shall have no vote.

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 Ap-
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 modification, may accept the report subject to a specified
reduction in the sanction imposed, or dismiss one or more of the
The right to appeal to the President of the College is stated under

speech and lawful assembly. Freedom to experiment, to pre-
sent and to examine alternative data and theories; the freedom
to hear, to express and to debate various views; and the

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 Hmits of the public
order act. The College also affirms the right of others to
pursue their normal activities within the College and to be
protected 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,
recommending policies and procedures for improvement of
all channels of communcation, advising administrative officers
where appropriate, participating in evaluation and resolu-
tion of conflicts that may arise from incidents or disturb-

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

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.

visory Council; the administration members shall be nomi-

ing 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
(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.

mittee, varied to suit the several functions, consistent with

SCHOLASTIC STANDARDS AND REQUIREMENTS
Students are urged to make the fullest use possible of the aca-
demic counselling available to them through their respective advisors,
departmental 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 consid-
erable 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 divi-
Class standing is determined by the total number of semester
hours earned including acceptable credits transferred from other ac-
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)
lunior 64-95 semester hours of earned credit
>cnior 96 semester hours or more of earned credit
The student with 60 semester hours of earned credit while tech-
nically housed in the Upper Division is expected to make a formal
[)plication for acceptance into his division. Details regarding upper-
ii visional acceptance may be obtained from the Dean of Liberal Arts
r the Dean of Professional Studies.
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

20 3.00 or above
Marking and Point System
Mansfield State College employs the 4-point system in evaluating
Grade Interpretation Quality Points
A Excellent 4
B Above Average 3
C Good College Work 2
D Passing 1
Instructors may correlate percentage scores with letter grades.
For such correlations the following list of equivalents is presented:
80— 89 =B
70— 79 = C
60— 69 =D
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.
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 "D" grade.
An "I" (incomplete) grade is used to denote unfinished work
because of a death in the family, illness, accident or other serious
mitigating 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 miti-
gating 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
Reasons for granting "I" grades must be cleared through the
Office of Academic Affairs. If the "I" grade is not cleared for rea-
sons of mitigating 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 warrant-
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.
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 student
secures the appropriate form from the Data Processing Center, re-
ceives the signature of the instructor for the course involved and
returns 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.
Whenever any rule or regulation 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 aca-
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.
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
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 stu-
dent 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
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
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.

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
Following dismissal notification a student, upon his own initiative,

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
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

voting members of the A. S. R. B. will consider all necessary
records of the student. Next the student will be given t.he
opportunity 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
members will determine the decision on any specific case.

by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs shall be ac-
cepted by all faculty.

Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and official notification
tor excused absences will be issued to the faculty by this office.

reduce to a minimum opportunities for dishonesty in academic work.
Faculty should instruct the students as to the meaning of plagiarism
»o as to aid in solving the plagiarism problem. Where possible, the
faculty member is expected to assess offenses of academic dishonesty

marily between the student and instructor. Requests for special assist-
ance may be made to the Office of Academic Affairs.
