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. 

Sincerely yours. 

Lawrence Park 




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.

monly referred to as a demerit system. Those who violate residence 
hall policy are issued written notices called demerit slips; these are 
reviewed and action is taken.

(Doane Heallh Center) 

The College Health Service operates in a modern fully equipped 
facility which provides every convenience necessary for the health 
needs of students, who are served by a physician and registered 
nurses. Hospital care is provided at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial 
Hospital 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 confi- 
dential, there is no possibility of embarrassment to the student and 
consequently 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 
physician, and where condition indicates, admission to the infirmary 
IN advocated. Medications and treatments are dispensed to the stu- 
'Icnis free or at a very minimal charge depending on the type of 
Medication prescribed. 

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



If a student is ill anywhere other than the Infirmary and wishes

Mansfield State College offers its full-time students, through 
Higham, Neilson, Whitridge & Reid, Inc., 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 $40.00 insurance fee appearing in the student bill, by regis- 
tration 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 $20.50. 

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


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 ap- 
pointment for help in strengthening academic performance, develop- 
ing career plans, solving situational problems, or improving personal 

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

Appointments may be made by calling Extension 441 or by com- 
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 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 


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- 
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 exist- 
ing 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. 

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 
official duties. 

' "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. 


(subject to change) 

Monday - Thursday 8 a.m. - 10 p.m. 

Friday 8 a.m.- 9 p.m. 

Saturday 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. 

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. 


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 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 Fi- 
nancial Aid. 


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. 

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. 

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. 

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 
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 standing and have demonstrated financial need. 

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


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 
March 1. 



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. 


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. 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. 


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 im- 
portant 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 Col- 
lege Union and in Manser Hall.

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. 


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 
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.

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. 




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 pro- 
grams is covered by the student activities fee.

bulletin boards. Admission is covered by the student activities fee. 



The Planning Committee for Student Recreation is a combined 
faculty-student committee working to improve the recreational facili- 
ties on the campus. This committee meets regularly to set policies 
and to organize social activities such as roller skating and bowling 
parties, winter weekends, dance classes, and cultural trips. 

In addition to the social activities, the following recreational 

[opportunities are available: bicycling, bowling, croquet, basketball, 

volleyball, picnic equipment, skiing, and sledding. This equipment 

can be signed out by contacting the Dean of Student Activities in 

.South Hall. 


The three main types of recreation or entertainment in the town 
for students to enjoy are the Twain Theater, the bowling lanes, and 
Ihc roller skating rink. The theater is located on Main Street; the 
bowling lanes and the skating rink are on South Main Street. On 
Wednesday and Thursday evenings, the theater offers special rates 
to college students. 





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.

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- 
tional interests. 

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- 
ulty Council. 

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 
College premises. 

(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- 
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 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. 

(7) Compensation in form of work or other duties as outlined in 
description of sanction presented to the student. 

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. 

(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 

(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- 
erly 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 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- 
peals 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 modification, 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. 

Any person who is being charged, or who has had concluded de- 
cisions at hearing boards, administered as a result of charges being 
acted upon, and who willfully and with intent to physically, verbally, 
or in any other manner create actions detrimental to the physical and 
mental well-being of those involved directly in a case, shall, upon 
charges being brought by those judicial members or defendants being 
subjected to such actions, appear before the Vice-President for Stu- 
dent Affairs and proper actions and decisions be rendered to rectify 
said situation. 


Article I 

Section 100 Notice 

In any action or proceeding before the hearing boards, notice 
must be given to the party against whom such action or proceeding 
is brought. 

I. Notice must be given in the form of a written complaint, signed 
by the complaining party, which shall specify in complete form: 

1. The approximate time, place, date, and identification of the 
conduct or violation of the college rules complained of. 

2. All the facts necessary and relevant to enable the party com- 
plained of to be informed of the charge against him. 

3. Notice must be given of the rights of any party before the 
hearing boards. 


II. Written notice of the time, date, and location of the hearing 
to be held on any complaint shall be given concurrently with the notice 
required by paragraph I of this section on either a separate form or 
upon the face of the complaint. Such notice shall also contain notice 
that failure to appear without excuse deemed sufficient by the hearing 
board may result in recommended suspension pending appearance. 

III. Traffic Offenses. In any traffic offense, the ticket shall func- 
tion as the complaint required by paragraph I, and shall conform to 
all its requirements. 

Section 101 Service 

In any action or proceeding before the hearing boards, service of 
notice shall be affected by registered mail, (with return receipt re- 
quested) or upon the person directly. 

Section 102 Time 

Commencing from the date of service, the party upon whom such 
notice is served shall be afforded five (5) days before the commence- 
ment of any action or proceeding before the hearing boards. The 
time required by this section may be waived by either party upon 
submission of written request for an earlier or later hearing. Notice 
of new time and place of hearing shall be sent to the party complained 
of as provided in section 100. 

Article II 

Section 200 Commencement of an Action 

All action, excluding appeals, shall be heard by the hearing 
boards by way of a signed complaint. An action shall be commenced 
by filing such complaint with the Office of the Vice President Tor 
Student Affairs, which shall be responsible for complying with the 
sections governing service and time. 

A. In all cases where the hearing boards have original juris- 
diction, the complaint shall be filed with the appropriate 
hearing board. The student appearing before a College 
hearing board shall have the right to be assisted in his de- 
fense by an advisor of his choice. Legal counsel is permis-

ArHcle III 

Section 300 Hearings 

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 
wherein the charge is a violation of a regulation of student conduct, 
the charge must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt. In the case 
of a violation of traffic regulations, the violations must be proven by 
substantial evidence. 

III. Both parties to any action or proceeding before the hearing 
boards shall have the right of cross examination of witnesses who 
testify, and shall have the right to submit evidence in rebuttal. The 
court shall have the right to question witnesses. 

IV. The hearing boards may take note of facts which are not 
reasonably disputable. However, when the hearing boards take such 
notice, it shall notify both parties and allow them to supply any addi- 
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, 
or any other court within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. (This 
procedure, known as judicial notice, makes it possible for the hearing 
boards to accept some facts without proof. For example, it is gener- 
ally 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 ob- 
jection or motion, require it be reduced to writing, and order the pro- 
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 Se- 
curity Office is necessary, in the opinion of the board, to the decision 
of the case.

its evidence. The party complained of shall then have an 
opportunity to question the evidence presented and to pre- 
sent 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

mony such persons or papers essential to the finding of a fair and 
just decision.

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 boards shall request the withdrawal of all parties, at which 
time the hearing board shall make its decision.

of the members present shall be required to find for guilt of the 
complaint 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 

After reaching a decision of guilty, the hearing board shall call 
the accused before it and listen to any arguments relevant to deter- 
mination of the penalty. It shall also, at this time, examine the rec- 
ord of the party and require testimony of him as to any other college 
offenses of which he has been found guilty. The hearing board shall

as justice may require.

I. All matters upon which the decision may be based must be 
introduced into evidence at the proceeding before the hearing board. 
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. 

II. Except as provided in paragraph I of this section, the hearing 
board may admit and give probative effect to evidence which is 
deemed by them to be relevant. It may exclude incompetent, irrele- 
vant, immaterial or unduly repetitious evidence. (Probative effect 
refers to facts that tend to prove.)

shall be observed. (Example: counselor-student communication; physi- 
cian-student communication; minister-student communication.) Such 
communication shall not be used as evidence in the court.

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

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 viola- 
tion does not pose any immediate threat of injury to person or prop- 
erty, such officer shall make reasonable effort to learn the cause of 
the conduct 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,

President or the appropriate administrative officer shall cause the 
ejection of the violator from any premises which he occupies in vio- 
lation of these rules and shall initiate disciplinary action as herein- 
before provided.

to the public authorities for any aid which he deems necessary in 
causing 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 
appropriate jurisdiction for an injunction to restrain the violation or 
threatened violation of these rules.

this act. In an extreme emergency, the President may designate a 
person other than those persons named above to invoke the provi- 
sions of this act. 

Section 9. This act shall be known as "The Rules and Regula- 
tions to Maintain Public Order, Mansfield State College" and may be 

cited as "Public Order Act, M.S.C." 

Section 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 pre- 
sent 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 
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 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- 
ances on campus. 

Section 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 Section 8 of 
Title I, may not be members of the Committee on Open 

(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- 
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. 

Section 3. Jurisdiction. The Committee shall have competence to 
consider 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 affect- 
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. 

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

Section 4. Procedures. 

1. Seven members of a Committee constitute a quorum. 


member 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 Counsel 

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- 
sional deans. 

Class Standing 

Class standing is determined by the total number of semester 
hours earned including acceptable credits transferred from other ac- 
redited 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) 

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 
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. 

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 
summer school. 

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- 
ing 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 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- 
demic 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. 
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 
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 Standard's Review 
Board As Set Forth by the Academic Standard's Committee of the 

Students who have not achieved the minimum required grade 
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, 
has recourse to the Academic Standard's Review Board if in his opin- 
ion there would be sufficient reason upon which to appeal his dis- 
missal. 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, 1971 through June 1, 1972 are: 

Teacher Education Delegate: Miss Catherine Kuster 
(Alternate) : Mr. Robert Putt 

Arts & Sciences Delegate: Dr. Hilda Wagner 

Dr. George Mullen 

Delegate-at-Large: Dr. John Saveson 

(Alternate) : Mr. Michael Leiboff 

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

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 
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 

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. 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. 

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 

i)roper completion of all withdrawal papers the student is cleared for 
ormal withdrawal. 

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

Absence Policy 

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

Bona fide absences because of illness, serious mitigating circum- 
Itances, or absences because of official College representation approved 
by the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs shall be ac- 
cepted 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 
tor 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 
»o 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 pri- 
marily between the student and instructor. Requests for special assist- 
ance may be made to the Office of Academic Affairs.

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 vehicles and the use of parking facilities. 

Motor vehicle control is administered by the Mansfield State 
College Traffic Policy Committee. The Committee is authorized to 
establish and enforce through the Traffic Court such rules and regu- 
lations as are deemed necessary and proper for the operation of 
motor vehicles and for the safety of pedestrians, property, and other 
vehicle operators. 

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 ex- 
cuse for violations. 

Questions or problems relating to the operation of motor vehicles 
^should be directed to the Chief Security Officer. 

These regulations, or any part thereof, may be revised at any 

I A. Registration: 

1. Each motor vehicle driven or parked on Mansfield State Col- 
lege property, and/or used by students. College employees, or 
faculty at any time while in class attendance or during em- 
ployment, must be registered with the Chief Security Officer. 
Commercial vehicles delivering or performing services to the 
College will not be required to have a permit. All vehicles 
must be registered within 24 hours after arrival on campus. 

2. Proof of ownership (registration) and driver's license of the 
person registering the vehicle must be shown to the college 
security officer at the time of application for a permit and 
at any time when requested by a college security officer. 

B. Fees: There is no charge for parking, but a permit fee of $1.00 
per permit for the year or any part thereof is charged. Reg- 
istration of a vehicle does not insure a place to park on campus. 


C. Eligibility for Parking Permits: Permits to park motor vehicles 

on campus shall be issued in the following priority: 

1. Permits with prefix number 11 issued only to administrative 
officers and faculty. 

2. Permits with prefix number 33 issued only to non-instructional 

3. Permits with prefix number 66 issued only to non-resident 
students. From 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. may park in desig- 
nated lot only. May park in any lot or stall from 5:00 p.m. 
until dorm closing. May not park in any lot from dorm 
closing until 7:00 a.m. 

4. Permits with prefix number 1 issued only to freshmen and 
sophomores. May park only in designated lot. 

5. Permits with prefix number 99 issued only to resident stu- 
dents. Resident students defined as those living in college 
owned or leased property who are juniors or seniors or other 
resident students over age 21 or married. 

6. Graduate students or graduate assistants are considered stu- 
dents and not faculty. 

D. Permits: 

1. A permit is issued for a specific motor vehicle. No permit 
may be transferred from one vehicle to another. The person 
to whom the permit is issued is responsible for any violation 
incurred. Students are held responsible for vehicles of visitors 
and parents and any violation incurred will be charged to 
the student. 

2. The decal is to be placed on the left rear bumper of the 
vehicle. All old decals are to be removed or obliterated. 

3. Tampering in any way with the permits or decals shall be a 
violation of these regulations and shall be cause for discipli- 
nary action. 

4. The permit will become void when the decal identification is 
no longer distinguishable. 

5. The permit of a motor vehicle which is sold, transferred, junked 
or otherwise disposed of must be returned to the security 
officer within 48 hours of the time of such disposal or proof 
of destruction of the permit must be shown. Any change of 
status of a motor vehicle or the person to whom the permit 
is issued must be reported to the security officer within 24 
hours of such change. 


6. The operation of a motor vehicle or parking on college prop- 
erty is at the sole risk of the operator. The College assumes 
no responsibility for any loss, damage or injury to any per- 
son or property which occurs on College property. 



1. Motor vehicles must be driven only upon regularly constructed 
roads and must be parked only in designated parking areas. 

2. Vehicles must be parked within parking lines. 

3. All Traffic Signs and signals must be obeyed. No one, re- 
gardless of type of permit, may park in any zone marked, "no 
parking." A vehicle shall be considered parked if it is stopped 
or standing in a "no parking" zone. 

4. The speed limit on College property is 15 miles per hour. 

5. College traffic regulations shall be in force tlireughout the 
entire calendar year. 

6. State registration of the vehicle and driver's license of the 
operator must be in the vehicle or on the person of the oper- 
ator when the vehicle is in use and must be produced immedi- 
ately on request of any college security officer. 

Where To Park: All vehicles must park in areas posted as per 
prefix on decal. 


A. Failure to register or display decal within 24 hours after arrival 
on campus — $10.00 fine. 

_B. Speeding in excess of 15 M.P.H. — $10.00 fine. (First offense. 
Second offense loss of driving privilege for the remainder of 
the school year.) 

Tickets for the school year, fall registration to fall registration, 
are cumulative during the academic year. 

1. First ticket: for a violation other than failure to register or 
display decal, may be a warning ticket. 

To be a warning ticket, it must be cleared in person 
at Traffic Control Center within 48 hours, or the vio- 
lator will be subject to a $2.00 fine. 

2. Second ticket, minimum $2.00 fine. 

3. Third ticket, minimum $5.00 fine. 

4. Reception of four or more tickets, mandatory appearance be- 
fore Traffic Court. 


D. All tickets including warning tickets must be cleared within 48 

hours or an additional $1.00 per scheduled school day pen- 
alty up to a maximum of $10.00 additional penalty may be 
assessed. Those whose penalty fine is allowed to exceed the 
$10.00 maximum will be required to appear before the Traf- 
fic Court. 

Those who are summoned by registered mail will pay for 
the letter. 

E. Repeated violations may lead to a recorded account of violator's 

behavior and/or loss of driving privileges. The College re- 
serves the right to cancel, or suspend at any time the vehicle 
privileges of flagrant violators of the college traffic and park- 
ing regulations. Flagrant violators may also be subject to 
disciplinary action resulting in suspension from College. 

F. Procedure for paying fines: Checks are to be made payable to 

the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. You must pay your fine 
directly to the security officer in the Traffic Control Center 
between 9-12 A.M. and 1-4 P.M. Monday through Friday. 

G. Unpaid penalties at the end of any school term or termination of 

employment are considered outstanding debts to the College. 


The College Traffic Court will sit periodically to hear appeals of 
violations. The request for a hearing must be filed in writing at the 
time the violation is cleared. Any fine will be returned if the court 
upholds the appeal. Decisions of the Traffic Court are final. 


Police and emergency vehicles are not governed by these regu-
