RELEASED: May 1, 2001
President talks about enhancing the faculty's role in planning; "Dead Fred" returns; the vice-presidential debate
DANVILLE, KYCentre College has been featured in the latest issues of three national publications, Strategic Planning in Higher Education: Theory and Practice, The Supreme Court Historical Society Quarterly and Matrix magazine.
Centre president John Roush gives his ideas on how a college president plays a key role in increasing faculty participation in an institution's planning process in Strategic Planning in Higher Education. The book also takes an in-depth look at Centre's strategic plan.
In the book, Roush says that a president should be sure from the start that the strategic plan has not been written in advance without the faculty's input and their contributions to the planning process are essential.
A story about "Dead Fred" is featured in The Supreme Court Historical Society Quarterly. The publication takes a look at how the fraternity members of Phi Delta Theta escorted a portrait of fraternity brother and Centre alum Fred Vinson '09 to the vice-presidential debate held at the school last fall. The portrait of the late Supreme Court justice has been a regular visitor to Centre athletic events since Vinson's death in 1953. A second famous Centre alumnus is featured in the issue. The Civil War experiences of John Marshall Harlan are examined in an article. Harlan later went on to serve one of the longest terms on the Supreme Court.
Matrix magazine did a follow-up story from its previous coverage of the vice-presidential debate at Centre. This month's article focused on how the debate has boosted the popularity of the college most noticeable in the 16-percent increase in admission applications the school has received from this time last year.
