studies to the instructional staff, student enrollment, and
income, the committee assembled the following data:

records in the registrar's office the student enrollment ‘
and size of instructional staff by college and department g
for every other school year since lQZlaZZ, and for the 5" .51

Minutes of the University Senate — March 13, 1953




The data show clearly that the decade from 1921~1931 was one
of rapid expansion at the University of Kentucky. This expane
sion took place in the instructional staff and courses offered
at a rate approaching that of the University‘s enrollment and
income. The growth in number of courses and increase in size
of staff has been more marked in some colleges than in others,
and in some departments than others in the same college. For
example, in only three departments of the Ccfllege of Arts and
Sciences has there been no increase in staff or courses since
1921, while in others the increase has been as great as

There has been a sharp decline both in income and enrollment, ‘
however, during the year 1932~33, While at the same time the

staff has dropped off slightly and the number of courses has

actually increased. In the opinion of the committee the

expansion, particularly in courses offered; is out of pro«

portion to the present enrollment and income of the University

and has resulted in the following conditions:

A0 The offering of many small and therefore expensive coursese
While these courses, in the main, have been on the senior T1
college and graduate levels, they nevertheless appear to C‘
be excessive« Several departments have offered twenty or
more advanced courses where the enrollment has averaged
fewer than ten students each.

B. ‘The overspecialization of courses within departments» if
C The attempt of instructors to offer too many different Pk
‘ COH‘SeSa Within a fivenyear period, some instructors have

offered twenty or more different courses, while the offering SE

of eight or ten courses has been Very common” Th

D» The overlapping and dunlication of courses within departments f0

and between departmentSa It appears that the duplication
within departments is as preValent as it is between departments
in the same or in different collegesu


The committee regards itself as primarily a factwfinding bodye
It does, however, make the following general recommendations:



Minutes of the University Senate v March 13, 1933

A. That the data assembled by the committee be placed at the
diSPOSal of the president of the University.

B. That the Senate Committee on DupliCation of Courses be
instructed to make a thorough investigation of courses

already authorized,

as well as of proposed new courses for

the purpose of determining the amount of dupliCation and
of suggesting Ways for its re uction or elimination.

The University Senate met in the Lecture Room of McVey Hall, Monday,
April 17, with President McVey presidinge

The minutes of March 13 were read and approved.

The following report from the Athletic Committee, Prfifessor Grehen as

Chairman, was received and filed:
"To the Senate of the University of Kentucky:

I have been asked by the secretary to present a brief renort on

athletics at the University with special emphasis upon the entrance of

this institution recently into the new Southeastern Conference.

I take it that it is well known that on the occasion of the December
meeting of the Southern Conference in 1932, 13 colleges and universities
withdrew from the old conference of 23 members, and formed an organization

to which it gave the name of the Southeastern Conference.

Tt has been felt for some time that it would be desirable to reduce
the number of members of the Southern Conference so as to minimize the
topheaviness of that organization, and so also as to being int; closer

relationship those institutions that were geographically best located

to compete with one another. The divorce took place without any outward

6Vidence of bad temper, without unkind criticism, but withal. with a
