program of pre-service professional education for
prospective elementary and secondary school teachers.
They provide courses for these teachers and plan
programs which will meet the professional needs of
pre-service elementary and secondary school teachers.
The School also provides opportunities for the profes-
sional growth of in-service teachers in such special
areas as Adult, Audio Visual, Driver Safety, and

Graduate School


The purpose of the Graduate School is to offer
advanced instruction and opportunities for re-
rearch to as many qualified students as possible,
and to provide leadership in the advancement
of human knowledge. The program is designed
especially to meet the needs of elementary and
secondary school teachers, school administrators
and guidance counselors. It affords to such in-
dividuals an opportunity to: (1) develop a high
level of skill in the art of teaching, (2) admin-
ister a school program, necessary in providing

leadership.

College of Law


The primary purpose of the College of Law is
to train men and women for the legal profession
in all its aspects. The institution is designed to
enable the students to practice law wherever the
Anglo-American system of law prevails. It is
based upon the idea that law should be looked
upon as consisting of a series of related and
integrated parts, rather than a number of de-
tached units. It is the belief of the Cological
unity. Consideration is given to changing eco-
nomic and social forces with their resultant effect
upon law.

School of Pharmacy


The School of Pharmacy recognizes its re-
sponsibility to prepare students for the profes-
sional and business aspects of retail pharmacy
and to provide a fundamental background for
further study in other areas of the profession.
The curriculum is designed to equip the student
for citizenship in the world of intellectual and
moral responsibilities based on a thorough
knowledge of his own profession.

The School of Nursing


Eunice Burgess, Dean of the School of Nursing


Filing accurate and complete reports is a must
for the nurse.


School of Nursing

The School of Nursing believes in a philosophy
of education which recognizes the need for the
total development of the individual and provides
opportunities for personal growth, thereby help-
ing the learner gain a keener insight into himself,
the nature of man, and society. Such a philos-
ophy seeks to promote the belief in the worth
of all individuals and to provide learning to
think creatively in meeting present and future
situations.


"They also serve who only stand and wait", but the many duties of the
nurse allows no idleness.

Vocational -Technical Institute
With the rapid expansion of industry in the
state as well as throughout the country, new
occupations in the technological fields have
evolved. Extensive research, resulting in an ac-
celerated use of electrical and mechanical power
on the part of industry, has developed an in-
creasing demand for men and women with the
proper combination of technical and formal edu-
cation to fill many new positions as technicians,
which occupy an area between the skilled crafts
and the highly scientific professions. This pro-
gram provides those offerings that are necessary
to fulfill the training needs of a well-balanced
program of technical and general education as
recommended by leaders in the fields of Indus-
trial and Engineering Education.
