Title

Report of the University College Department of Literature

Description

Welford D. Taylor, Chairman of the Literature Department at University College, submitted this report to President Modlin to update him about the affairs of his department in 1971. He claimed that the most notable improvements were the new course offerings like that of Shakespeare and American Literature. Also, the faculty offered a one-semester course on the literature of the South. The department hopes to get a reading laboratory to help students with special reading challenges. Despite the success of the department, Chairman Taylor did want to express to the President his, and other faculty members' feelings that both their reputation and that of University College were not valued as much as Richmond College and Westhampton College because they teach students with "inferior credentials". In sum, they were worried about the future of their programs and the University College.
