Thesummer enrollment for 1970 was 109; 1971,216; and 1972, 384.Dr. James Reaves, Dean of the GraduateSchool, contributes the growth of theGraduate School to several factors. Themost important reason for the growth of theschool is the conscious and 1aIInedeffort ofthe administrators on this campus to gatherfeedback from offcampus by questionnaires and visiting other schools,superintendents and other educationalsupervisors to determine what coursesshould be provided.Other reasons for the increase are recentrulings by the State Board of Educationwhich strongly recommends public schoolteachers to work towards their advanceddegrees; use of extension centers, expansion of old programs and innovation ofnew programs for offcampus groups ofteachers arid Saturday workshops whichmeet only on Saturday.In Graduate school programs, Dr. Reavessaid, "There is a national trend in simplifying and modifying Graduate school.entrance requirements." "The shift is fromomission to retention." Dr. Reaves furtherstated. "At JSU anyone will be admitted tothe Graduate program who has a degree andthe proper background."Dr. Reaves is a former JSU student andSGA president. He received his MS in SchoolAdministration a t JSU and his Ph.D a t theUniversity of Alabama with post-Doctoratework a t the University of Florida. Hebecame the Dean of the Graduate School in1966.The Graduate program a t JSU began in1957. The first degree given was MS inEducation. The other degrees were added in1968. Master degrees are now given in thefields of Education in 13 different areas: M.A.'s in 4 different programs; Master ofBusiness Administration; and Master of. Science in 5 different areas, excludingEducation.According to Dr. Reaves, two new degreeswill be added this fall. A Master of Arts inGeneral Studies and a Master's in PublicAdministration will be offered.By VERONICA PIKEAssistant EditorJacksonville State Universitj ? u sjoined agroup action suit seeking to ramove col!egea d university faculties a1-d administraticr:sfrom the jurisdiction c;f the corltroversialethics laws.Dr. Mary Martlla Thomas. president ofJSU's faculty senate, is reprr-,e.i?ili;; i!ieuniversity in the suit,ir,c:li.iL-:,i t bUniversity of '\labam. kub::"r! ?.,f!?j.v rb! ,a e University of MontevaUs, ' T , : I StatdUniversity and 'the State Technjca: !il-ctitui and Colleges Association n d ? r tkt? i;[email protected] lof Kufsls Behel, University of 'lab rl a'sattorney.'The suit contests the ruling of the StateEthics Commission that faculty membersand administrative officials whc make morethan 12,000 annually disclose their finanolalinterests.
